    In the theoretical part, I presented Slovenian youth writer Ela Peroci (1922-2001), illustrator Ančka Gošnik Godec (1927-), and the picture book Muca Copatarica (1957). I analyzed the literary theory of Marjana Kobe to the fairy tale and her analysis of short modern fairy tale Muca Copatarica in the form of the picture book. I presented the definition of the fairy tale, the emergence of the fairy tale in Slovenia, and the significance and the influence of reading fairy tales on a preschool child. In the empirical part, I first presented an individual test, which was performed before exercising the project Muca Copatarica with every child individually. I began with the project on the 1st of September 2017. Then, the professional workers prepared a puppet show Muca Copatarica with marionettes for all the children in the kindergarten. The children became acquainted with life and work of the youth writer Ela Peroci and the illustrator Ančka Gošnik Godec through the project. They became acquainted with the picture book in detail and listened to it in a foreign language (English). We went to the library together with the children, became acquainted with the works of Ela Peroci, and borrowed some of them. We prepared a book nook of the author and the children illustrated her portrait by means of the technique: the charcoal art of drawing. They also illustrated the portrait of Ančka Gošnik Godec, also with the technique: the charcoal art of drawing. We closely examined a domestic animal – the cat and searched for the similarities and differences between the domestic cat and the literary figure Muca Copatarica. We built the home of the cat in the woods. Children also became acquainted with the profession of the dressmaker and they tried to operate the sewing machine. We also prepared an exhibition of children’s products in various art techniques within the topic Muca Copatarica in the kindergarten Anton Medved Kamnik. For the conclusion of the project, we prepared a drama play together with the children and performed it in the playground of the kindergarten. After the end of the show, we performed workshops, where children sew something within the topic of Muca Copatarica. In addition, we had some cookies and some tea. The project lasted from the 1st of September 2017 to the 6th of October 2017. After the project had been finished I repeated the individual test and thus got the insight into the child’s gained knowledge. Picture book Muca Copatarica (1957) celebrates the sixtieth anniversary of the first edition this year. The first edition was edited in 1957. Until 2017 the picture book has been reprinted 15 times.
