Touran Mirhadi (1927 – 2016) invested her life in creating methods in order to smooth out the path of seeking knowledge, and therefore she should never be forgotten. She was amongst the group of people who viewed building a healthy and learned society impossible without educating children well. She established children’s book exhibitions, the “Children’s Book Council of Iran” and “Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults." Moving on, the objective of this thesis is to point to the services and changes that Mirhadi has created in Iran's educational system as well as in children's literature.
