Children develop their vocabulary, learn social roles and build relationships through reading story books. They get familiar with behaviors and actions which are attributed to men and women through these books. So the way men's and women's roles are represented in story books is very important. It is the main goal of this research to see how gender patterns are represented in story books. Despite the fact that statistics show that Iranian
