Definitions: children's book illustration , "...any type of picture or decorative work produced for books specifically intended for a youthful audience."
[cite fr. www.answers.com/topic/children-s-book-illustration 2009.12.28 ]
Children's books are often illustrated, sometimes lavishly, in a way that is rarely used for adult literature except in the illustrated novel genre popular especially in Japan, Korea and France. Generally, the artwork plays a greater role in books intended for the youngest readers (especially pre-literate children). Children's picture books can be a cognitively accessible source of high quality art for young children.
Many authors work with a preferred artist who illustrates their words; others create books together, and some illustrators write their own books. Even after children attain sufficient levels of literacy to enjoy the story without illustrations, they continue to appreciate the occasional drawings found in chapter books". [cited fr. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children%27s_literature#Illustrations
