The 100th anniversary commemorative event of the Taisho period's fairy-tale children's magazine "Red Bird"

(TOP image) "Red bird" first issue

It was during Taisho 7 (1918) that the Taisho period's children's children's mother magazine "Red Bird" was launched. In the first issue, a fairy tale such as Akutagawa Ryunosuke's "Spider's Thread" and children's songs by Kitahara Hakushi who will decorate everything from there are posted, and until 1929 until Showa 4 (1929) A book was issued. "Late fox" of Shinmei Nankichi etc is also posted in the late "red bird" after interruption. I will think about the facts and significance of "red birds" that can be said to have transformed the landscape of children's literature and children's culture in Japan, the fairytales of the same age, children's songs and children's paintings, while tasting fairy tales that are read continuously. We are waiting for the participation of many people who are interested in children's books and culture.
