Dual language resources for bilingual children and parents
and for the multi-lingual classroom
Bilingual Books Biliterate Children
This fascinating study shows how young children work simultaneously in two languages to decode unfamiliar text, negotiate meaning and explore the differences between their languages. Set in the context of current research and practice in relation to multi-literacy, personal and learner identity, and issues in translation, the book explores dual language books and their use in England since the 1980s.
Teachers, parents and researchers will find the book invaluable. It explores the nature and benefits of bi-literacy and offers ideas and strategies for teaching young children languages.
