Pediatrician Steiner (Tufts Medical Ctr.) has created a step-by-step plan to help parents who want their children to learn a second language. The book is geared to bilingual parents who no longer live in their birth country but want their children to learn their native language-though monolingual parents who want their children to learn a second language will also benefit from the information presented here. Steiner starts off by exploring common myths about bilingual education and how the brain processes learning a second language. She then proceeds in an organized fashion to show parents how to establish a language action plan. Using charts and work sheets throughout, she explains how to set goals, decide on a language, eliminate obstacles, find resources, and finally implement the plan. Real-life situations are addressed, and Q&A sections are scattered throughout. Online and community resources are listed at the end to supplement the language plan. Recommended for large public libraries and libraries serving diverse cultures.
