Abstract
The article is devoted to illustrated books and how they influence the formation of multilingual environment. A special emphasis is made on picture books as a popular genre of children's modern literature. Visual images occupy a dominant place within modern culture and affect it profoundly. Visual narrative is becoming a new way of communication, especially in children's literature. Multicultural environment and multilingualism set new objectives for authors and illustrators of children's literature. The general purpose of the research is to highlight the picture books with the most expressive visual narrative and to solve the problems related to multilingual and multicultural environment.
