Throughout history, powerful institutions of various communities have turned to Children’s Literature to pursue their political, religious, economical, commercial, and socio-cultural purposes. As this had occurred commonly in different communities, the query of the present study was to investigate whether Iran’s powerful institutions had also affected Children’s Literature to pursue similar purposes as well. Review of previous literature showed no similar work carried out on Iranian Children’s Literature with such intention. The study was delimited to only those written and translated literature that had received awards by national and international institutions (this would ensure direct effect of power on product) and the scope of investigation was from 1340/1361 to 1367/1988. The period was selected intentionally due to the drastic socio-political and ideological changes in the country because of two major events: 1) the Islamic Revolution and 2) The Iran-Iraq war. A sum of 169 awarded literatures were collected and then analyzed quantitatively by SPSS software and later qualitatively by content analysis. Overall, results showed that despite all the commotion in the country, powerful institutions had indeed affected Children’s Literature and directed it for other purposes.
