Abstract

This research was conducted at the Faculty of Teacher Education in Zagreb. It is about the production of museum picturebooks in Croatia, their types, purpose and the ways in which children are involved in their creation or are encouraged to use them. What is special about picturebooks published by museums is their obvious intention to acquaint children and young people with times past as well as with numerous interesting details and facts associated with the past. It may be done by telling the tales which used to be passed from generation to generation, creating a simultaneity of two periods with the help of a supernatural being which gets into contact with a child of the present time, mentally reviving material monuments by returning to the times when they were built, telling of biographies of historical personalities or legends, inviting the reader to play with props which tell about times and situations from the near or ancient past, creating the interactive publications, reaching out with the help of digital technologies. This research should provide a basis for defining the concept of museum picturebook editions as a separate type of picturebook, artistic form or medium, and it should contribute to understanding educational use of museum picturebook editions for children.
