Özet

This study aims to evaluate children's picture books for 0-3-year-olds on the market in Turkey with respect to their physical features, illustrations and content. A total of 146 children's books for sale in Ankara and Istanbul bookshops were studied. Data were collected by using a five-part book check list designed by the researchers. The frequencies and percentages of these data were computed by using the SPSS16 statistical package. The results revealed that books for 0-3-year-olds generally reflect positive physical, illustration and content features listed in the literature but may be improved in several ways.
