Formosa-Taiwan is a small island with a unique culture. Because of its blood relationship with China, Taiwan inherits the traditional Chinese cultural features from mainland China. Inside Taiwan, the indigenous cultures are going to fade, while the increasing number of the children of foreign brides will play an important role in the future. On the other hand, culture from Japan and the West keep influencing Taiwan. We mix all resources together and hope to keep our culture growing in this rich land.
The thesis will focus on the development of local children's literature in Taiwan: the importance, influence, and problems of foreign children's literature in Taiwan and how Taiwan can create her own arts based on the knowledge from these foreign children's arts to solve the present difficulty with children's books.
