The following work analyses more than 800 travelogues in the periodicals for children from the end of the XIXth to the beginning of the XXth century and provides a classification for the text corpus. Since the material is considerably extensive we employed statistical approach to reconstruct the evolution process of the travelogue genre and drew a conclusion that first texts about travels appeared in news, then many scientific reports on expeditions were published, after that adventurous travelogues became extremely popular and finally the travelogue tradition was interpreted through irony and different clichés.
