The best time to learn a second language is as a child. During childhood, the brain is more receptive to language learning than at any other time in life. Aware that a second language can enrich their child's understanding of other cultures and bring future job opportunities in a world drawn ever closer by globalization, many parents today are motivated to raise their children bilingual.

This book helps parents in both monolingual and multilingual families determine and achieve their bilingual goals for their child, whether those goals are understanding others, the ability to speak a second language, reading and/or writing in two languages, or some combination of all of these. The authors explain how the brain learns more than one language, explode common myths, address frequently asked questions, and reveal an array of resources available to families. Packed with insightful anecdotes and powerful strategies, this is a one-of-a-kind guidebook for those seeking to provide their children with a uniquely valuable experience.

"Find out why early childhood is the best time to teach your child a second language and learn how to do it with this step-by-step guide. The section on handling predictable obstacles is particularly helpful." --Scholastic Parent & Child
"Steiner's passion for languages is obvious on every page and instills inspiration in both parents who've always planned to raise their children to be bilingual and in those who never considered bilingualism to be an important possibility. Perhaps, with Steiner's help, the people of the global village will raise the level of discourse and not only will countries be able to speak to each other, they'll also be able to understand each other." --ForeWord Magazine
