    The most important topic of my thesis is comparison of high-quality picture books with a less-quality picture book and how children respond to them (how they read and understand the story of a picture book). I made a comparison of responses children had on illustrations by selecting 4 high-quality modern Slovenian picture books and one less-quality Slovenian picture book. I selected picture books that are diverse in themes as well as genres: A Girl and a Giant (Neli Kodrič Filipić), Little Roman Circus (Andrej Rozman Roza), The Story About the Anchor (Damijan Stepančič), Animal Lullabies (Lila Prap) and Sweet Toothed Bears (Srečko Kosovel). The study of verbal responses of pupils was conducted with pupils from the second grade of Elementary School Mengeš. Ten pupils participated in the study, five girls and five boys, aged seven years. As the research method I used interview. Each student individually answered questions related to each picture book, with me recording their answers. I arranged their answers based on how frequent were individual responses to each question for every picture book and presented their responses in tables. Four high-quality Slovenian picture books have released pupils’ imagination, and attracted an emotional as well as clear response from all ten children. The answers were witty, associated with colors and based on their experiences. There was very little misunderstanding and confusion, more than half of pupils have always perceived the story and made a response to it. Responses to the less-quality picture book by Srečko Kosovel were contrary to the high-quality picture books; pupils showed a lack of understanding of illustrations as well as their distracting and dubious role.
