This paper analyzed the following contents. First, this study explored the background meaning that emphasized children’s reading in the 1920s and 30s and discussions on the establishment of a children’s library. In the process, this study examined the relationship between the national movement during the Japanese colonial period and children’s education, and the meaning of reading at the time. Second, in this study, the development of children’s library movement that was actively developed at the time and a methodology of reading education presented through the reading section were reviewed. It was this period that everyone was more interested in children’s reading education than ever before. In addition, as the children’s library movement was actively developed, a number of “Sonyeon Mungo” was established in various places. Meanwhile, in the reading section of the newspaper, a number of teaching methods for reading at school and at home were published, and examples were presented through advanced overseas reading education model. From the results of this analysis, it can be seen that the 1920s and 30s were the period when the children’s reading movement was actively developed.
