7 Steps to Raising a Bilingual Child

My husband and I have struggled over the years with the idea of raising our children to be bilingual. 7 Steps to Raising a Bilingual Child is very practical in addressing many concerns. The book is laid out in an orderly fashion and has a nice variety of examples of real life situations where families have dealt with raising a child to be bilingual. It has an entire section devoted to creating an action plan and another one devoted to predictable obstacles. This is an excellent resource for families where one parent speaks a language other than English as a mother tongue. If you are trying to decide if and how to pass that language and heritage on to your child read this book. It concludes with a resource list which I promptly took advantage of by going back to the library collection and borrowing language CD's and a CD-Rom for my children.
