Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the components of Plesk's creativity model in the story books of age group “B” children in Yazd city.
Method: Descriptive-survey method and content analysis were used. The statistical population consisted of all boy and girl students of the first, second and third grade elementary schools (age group B) in the academic year of 2017-2018 (12933 students), of which 1000 samples were selected using Cluster randomization. Then the most readable children's books were extracted through a survey, which ultimately included twenty story books. The research tools included a researcher-made questionnaire and the Plesk creativity checklist.
Findings: The findings showed that the "snowy white" has the highest frequency of studying among children, and "Hazrat-e- Fatemeh" has the lowest frequency. Also, in the text of the story books, among the components of the Plesk creativity model, the component of "attention" has been used in all the books, but some other components, such as "narrowing the concept" and "Inversion" has been less considered. In addition, in the story books, the "reinforcement" component is not absolutely used. In general, in story books, the element "nutrition of fantasy" is considered in order to pave the way for the growth of child's imagination, and the need to pay more attention to other neglected elements of creativity in these books seems necessary.
