This essay examines the surge in Taiwanese publishing for young children that has occurred during the last decade, seeking to assess the multiple causes for this trend, including cultural and economic developments in Taiwan. Two well regarded children's books by Taiwanese author/illustrator Chih-Yuan Chen are presented as artifact examples. The essay also looks at Taiwanese conceptions of literacy development in children and explores the relationship between the children’s book publishing industry and (public and school) libraries in Taiwan.
