In this study, the American and Turkish picture storybooks were compared according to some quality aspects. A total of fifty picture storybooks collected from ten early childhood education centers in Erzincan, Turkey, and Texas, U.S. were analyzed by the authors. The quality features of American and Turkish picture storybooks were analyzed through a scale and personal accounts of the authors regarding the scale items. It is revealed that the quality features in picture story books across two countries were interconnected with the socioeconomic structure of the countries and the suggestions were provided to raise the quality of children’s picture books in line with the educational and reading practices at school and home

Bu çalışmada Amerikan ve Türk resimli öykü kitapları bazı kalite özelliklerine göre karşılaştırılmıştır. Erzincan, ve Amerika, Teksas’da bulunan 10 okul öncesi eğitim kurumlarından toplanan toplam 50 adet resimli öykü kitabı yazarlar tarafından incelenmiştir. Amerikan ve Türk resimli öykü kitapları ölçme aracı ve yazarların ölçme aracındaki maddelere ilişkin kişisel değerlendirmeleri ile analiz edilmiştir. İki ülkedeki resimli öykü kitaplarındaki kalite özelliklerinin, ülkelerin sosyoekonomik yapısı ile bağlantılı olduğu belirlenmiş ve resimli çocuk kitaplarının kalitesini okul ve evdeki eğitim ve okuma uygulamalarıyla uyumlu hale getirmek için önerilerde bulunulmuştur.
