Les illustrations dans les albums de jeunesse aident-elles ou entravent-elles la lecture ?

Abstract : In my report, I studied the illustrations in youth albums by asking me if they helped or hindered the reading at the pupils. For that purpose, I defined the subject and replaced it in the context of the job by primary school teacher. The reading, question of which it is going to be, corresponds to the expert reading that is to the reading with interpretation, research for indications and inferences defined by Catherine Tauveron. Having emphasized various types (chaps) of relations existing between the illustrations and the text (redundancy, narrative gap, alternation), I set up situations allowing to highlight the interest of the illustrations in the help (assistant) to the fine understanding of texts. I proceeded to two different experiences. The first watches the link narrow existing between the text and the illustration thanks to the album L'Afrique de Zigomar of Philippe Corentin. The second allows to say if the illustrations help or hinder the reading. To answer it, I proposed an interpretative debate around the album Le loup, mon oeil of Susan Meddaugh. In the stemming from these experiences I can say that the illustrations help in a better understanding and an interpretation of albums by the pupils but to reach there, it is essential to make them work, beforehand, the reading of images and the research for indications in the illustrations. Or, they will not know how to interpret what they see in the illustrations.
