This book is a guide for parents who wish to raise children with more than one language and literacy. Drawing on interdisciplinary research, as well as the experiences of parents of multilingual children, this book walks parents through the multilingual reading and writing process from infancy to adolescence. It identifies essential literacy skills at each developmental stage and proposes effective strategies that facilitate multiliteracy, in particular, heritage-language literacy development in the home environment. This book can also be used as a reference for teachers who teach in community heritage language schools and in school heritage (or foreign) language programmes.

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 multiliteracy, personal and learner identity, and issues in translation, the book explores dual language books and their use since the 1980s. Developed from action research work by primary teachers, the book follows seven children aged 6 to 10 as they use dual language storybooks to learn to read in Albanian, Urdu, Turkish, French and Gujerati, with the help of their mothers or their friends. Teachers, parents and researchers will find the book invaluable. It explores the nature and benefits of biliteracy and offers ideas and strategies for teaching young children languages, whether by developing their bilingualism or teaching them new ones.

"With its stories of individual learners and teachers in a wide range of contexts, this book offers radical new thinking about mainstream and community education in Britain. It argues for theoretical frameworks and a model of pedagogy and terminology that properly reflect the ways in which children's achievements in mainstream school are fed by all their learning experiences in different contexts, and in all the languages in their repertoire. This gives the book international relevance. The editors, all experienced teachers and researchers in community settings, present an overview of the current situation and propose theoretical and pedagogical frameworks to move discussion forward. Individual case studies bring to life how it feels to be a teacher or learner in such contexts. ... Multilingual Learning is for researchers, teachers, teacher-educators, and those concerned with policy and pedagogy which provides pupils with opportunities to learn in the full range of languages they have at their disposal. It indicates possibilities for positive links between mainstream school and community learning contexts, and for future research, policy and practice."--Publisher's website.
