The bilingual family a handbook for parents
The Bilingual Family: A Handbook for Parents by Edith Harding-EschI loved this book. May be because it was the first book I read on topic, or maybe it hit all the right spots with me. It gave me a piece of mind about my choices and the confidence that I am doing everything the right way.
One thing I loved the most is that there is no one right for everyone type of bilingualism and if you dont achieve it, you fail. There are many roads, many possible goals, and many good outcomes.
Case studies presented in the book allow to have a detailed look into several strategies different families chose - and their results, as the authors revisit and interview grown children.
Its not very detailed or comprehensive book, but I found it very useful in building my own strategy for my son.
