The diploma titled Predšolska bralna značka in izbira slikanice contains theoretical and empirical part . At forefront of the theoretical part is the picture book quality, and the importance of reading to children in preschool age.

The aim of this diploma work is to find out why parents in the context of pre-school reading badges in kindergarten often choose the low-quality picture books.

I observed how important it is for parents to read picture books to the child, or if they know the characteristics of quality picture books and if they know the book mark gold pear indicating the quality of a picture book.
