The highest circulation of such books ranges between 3000- 5000.  The publication place of 84.2% of the books is Tehran and the rests (%15.8) are published in other cities. %84 of the books are published one time. %65.4 contain colored pictures. %43.8 consist of 20 pages and %8.6 of them exceed 150 pages. 18 rewritten books from Shāhnāmeh (%10.5) have editors and 6 of Mathnawi’s (%9.5) as well. No books from Shāhnāmeh belong to the age group of preschoolers but one from Mathnawi.  145 of Shāhnāmeh’s stories and 44 of Mathnawi’s have been rewritten in simple style rewriting while 26 and 19 ones have respectively been rewritten in creative style.
