Reviews

The book presents a well-developed and well-documented position on the OPOL approach.Irma M. Olmedo, University of Illinois, in Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 27:4Suzanne has written a superbly clear and accessible account of the daily challenges of family life with several languages. Her recommendations are substantiated by extensive research and show great insight into children's language development. I particularly enjoyed the numerous case-studies of multilingual families, and I would warmly recommend this book as the 21st Century guide to parents of multilingual children.Helen Le MerleThis book provides an excellent framework for parents who are interested in and concerned by raising bilingual children.Dr. Beate Luo, Linguistlist
