Should I give illustration suggestions?

The obstacle to writing children's picture books is not having illustrations to go along with the text.

I cannot draw worth a lick.  Sure I can scratch a little stick man on paper, but that's about it.  When I write a full picture book manuscript and have someone else critique it, don't I need to at least suggest how I think the illustrations should look?  Though, I'm sure a publisher would laugh at my ideas and say, "No.  No no no no."  But, when it's time to submit the manuscript, should I include my ideas for the illustrations?
