as we know In order to apply P4C program in our country , some writers & researchers recently started to rewrite the classical Persian texts according to P4C criteria. In this case, what means more than ever, is the new movement review . In this research which is reported on descriptive & analytical method , data includes some story collections based on the classical Persian literature named Masnavi Molavi & P4C , philosophy class & Thumbelina books , analyzed according to child literature & P4C standards. As a result of research , the most fault in these stories is lack of philosophical thinking such as interrogative nature of text , inquiry capacity & argumentative dialogue pattern. In literary aspect , poor characterization and plot and also lack of story descriptions cause to reduce literary adequacy. And Some stories have no psychological adequacy because of contradiction between content and reader's needs .
