Migration and refugees have become one of the most dramatic facts of our time. The ability of the host community and refugees to live in harmony is closely related to the empathy they have established with each other. Empathy skills that will be gained especially at a young age are the key to healthy interactions. Seen from this perspective, it is known that children's literature has an important function in creating individual values related to realities of life. Therefore, the attitude of the heroes to the conflicts they face enables the child to get new clues about solving the real life problems. Thus, it was aimed to determine the conflicts, the positions of the heroes in these conflicts and the methods of conflict resolution in the children's books on migration and refugees. In the current study, the document analysis method, one of the qualitative research methods, was used to collect data. The collected data were analyzed by using the descriptive analysis method. The analysis revealed that the most frequently encountered type of conflict in the books is person-to-person conflict. The methods used by heroes to resolve the conflicts they are in are in compliance with the realities of life. However, a large proportion of these methods are not approved methods.
