Summary/Abstract: The article Three Models of the Development of Bulgarian Poetry for Children discusses the principal paradigms which are milestones in the development of the lyrical genre for children from the Bulgarian National Renaissance to the second half of the 20th century. The text outliness three principal models. The first, which obtained primarily up to the First World War, is represented through an appelative-didactic paradigm. The second, a mainspring for the image of poems for children between the 1920ies and the 1940ies, inspires thematic and stylistic layers, validating the nexus between poetry for children and that for adults. Paramount in this process are the automigration of individual images and motifs from one type of literature to the other and vice versa, the dipping into the treasure-store of traditional lore and the pronounced interest in the social and political issues of the nation. The third model traces the changes in the political context of the poetry for children after 1944.
