Up to now, Children's literature has treated indifferently in a field of the history of Korean literature, and scholars also have recognized that the history of Children's literature is the same as a history of modern children's literature which was fairly new arrival in 1920's. But, so many children's works, which can be called by classical children's literature, have existed separately from modern children's literature. One of the representative book oh the history of Korean literature, HanGukMunHakTongSa(『韓國文學通史』) written by Cho Dong-Il, fortunately was concerned about children's literature and described it precisely well with a critical mind. Most of all, TongSa has a point of view different from other critics who study children's literature: that is where TongSa recognize a child as a writer, reader, and hearer of children's literature, namely, as the subject of enjoyment of their literature. And TongSa also placed high value on a traditional children's song with childish innocence. These point of view shows that TongSa considered importantly premodern works for children in narrating the history of Korean literature. By the way, though TongSa has a critical mind about children's, literature, it just appeared sporadically, unsystematically and not consistently in an explanation without any critical mind for a matter of continuity between classical and modern children's literature. And TongSa rarely treated traditional fairy tale, traditional children's song, and chinese poetry by children in connection with classical children's literature. It shows us that classical children's literature don't has been valued properly. Scholars of children's literature need to be interested in classical children's literature and to try to make have correct position of him in the history of korean literature.
