The evolution of Lithuanian children's literature is about as complicated as Lithuania's cultural and social history. The very first works of literature intended for children appeared in the first half of the 19th century. However, today they are appreciated only for their historic value. During the Russian Tsarist repressions of 1864-1904 the Lithuanian language was banned in Lithuania along with the publication of Lithuanian books. Meanwhile, at that time in the rest of Europe, children's literature was entering its "golden age". Only after 1904, when the ban on Lithuanian publishing was lifted, were Lithuanian schools established and educational texts written in Lithuania. These texts were used to teach children how to read... Lithuanian children's literature is not well known outside Lithuania's borders. However, that is not because the literature is not interesting, nor because of the lack of interesting books. The present volume proves this by showcasing the high-quality works of such writers and artist as Rimantas Cerniauskas, Paulius Juodisius, Kestutis Kasparavicius, Vytautas V. Landsbergis, Emilija Liegute, Gendrutis Morkunas, Selemonas Paltanavicius, Sigitas Poskus, Vytautas Racickas, Kazys Saja, Laisvyde Salciute, and Vytaute Zilinskaite. Bios and bibliographies are included.
