Colin Baker's "A Parents' and Teachers' Guide to Bilingualism"

"What are the advantages of my child becomin bilingual?" This is one of the many questions to which the Guide : A Parents and Teachers Guide to Bilingualism Guide tries to answer.
Presented in a very handy manner of questions and answers, this guide is certainly one of "must-have" to answer many of the worries and concerns we might have in trying to raise our children in a bilingual manner.
Each of the five mains sections is answering a different view such as the language development, reading ans writng, or even education. Each section answering a number of questions each of us may have. No topic seems to have been left behind as question such as dyslexia, autism and bilingualism are also answered in a very clear manner. 
Colin Baker's Guide is a useful reference book for every family who wishes to enter the road of bilingualism.
It is very handy to use. It does not have to be read like any other books as you can go from one question to another one in the order you like. At the end, you will find a very handy glossary with many terms and heir exact definition.
It is a book every bilingual family should have in their bookshelf.

I would also say that it is also a Guide that any teacher who has bilingual children is his ou her class should have as teaching bilingual children could be a real challenge for them.

I wish to thank the publisher for asking me to review this Guide and I am delighted to say that, even though I knew most of the answers given, i am delighted to have done it. I wish everyone to enjoy this Guide as much as I do and I would recommend it to anyone who wished to raise bilingual children.
