The authoress aims at illustrating the potential of interdisciplinary analysis on an example of children's literature, oriented on a specific audience of children. The age character of this audience, a detailed model of the reading process based on children's psychological and physiological features was determined with the involvement of psychologists. The literary review of the children's literature in its diachronic aspect allows to trace its evolution parallel to the change in the perception of its addressee. The use of statistical methods allows avoiding subjectivity and groundlessness of conclusions. At that stage there is no need to subject the whole children's literature to calculating and measurement. Numerical data are called to confirm (or refute) a hypothesis, and a relative value of an element's concentration is sufficient for this purpose. Therefore it is the comparison of the values received for texts aimed at different-aged addressees that is of importance.The authoress confirms the undoubted value of attracting adjacent discipline's data and methods to ensure a more adequate and comprehensive understanding of the subject matter.
