Format: Paperback
If what you are looking for is a discussion on different aspects of bilingualism, then this is a good book for you. If what you are looking for is clear guidance on how to raise a bilingual child, then this book may leave you frustrated. It keeps telling you pros and cons and debating different views and opinions, but it does not give you well defined guidelines, it is not a 'step-by-step guide' as you are promised on the cover.

I haven't finished yet, but my wife has read it completely and I like the style of the book to just throw in some various ideas about raising kids with two languages. There is not a right or a wrong way, but as long as you make the effort I believe it is possible. This book have given us a big headstart.

This is the best book I've ever read about this subject. Easy to read but interesting and useful. I strongly recommend this book if you are interested in bilingualism and if you have children and want to raise them as bilinguals which is not an easy issue.
Thanks to the author.

we loved this book. we both read it and found it really interesting. generally these books suffer from a lack of practical advice, but this book was more practical than most. that being said, there's still a bit of theory to slog through, but we found it interesting and helpful background.
