ORIGINAL AND VERSIFIED POETRY FOR CHILDREN AS AN ARTISTIC DIALOGUE BETWEEN CULTURES
Different countries and cultures have specific characteristics of their children's poetry, but they all also have some common features. Children's poetry appeared as a necessity for children to express their feelings, thoughts, desires, dreams, needs and experiences in an artistic way in verse. Children have the need to listen to poetry, to recite it, and to share it with their environment. Versification of children's poetry allows readers of a certain culture to learn about the feelings, thoughts and behavior of children belonging to other cultures. In this way the original and the versified children's poetry enables artistic dialogue between children from different countries and contributes to familiarizing with same, similar or different values of the cultures to which they belong. As a result, children's poetry becomes an artistic dialogue between children from different countries and cultures.
