As I’ve mentioned before at this blog, I’m now writing a book about raising bilingual children. And today I’m happy to announce that the manuscript for Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability is nearly finished.
Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability will be released in print in early 2016. However, if you’re interested in reading the “preview edition”—for free—I’ll soon offer this chance to a limited number of people in order to support your efforts at home and gratefully receive your feedback on the book for the first published edition.
First, though, let me tell you a little more about Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability…
- This book has basically been in the making for 20 years, ever since I first began teaching, and then parenting, bilingual children. The writing process itself has taken over three years.
- My aim is to provide a comprehensive breadth of ideas and inspiration—”a big buffet of food for thought”—that will help parents experience even greater success on their bilingual journey.
- It’s a big book, roughly 70,000 words, and shares the best of my personal experience as a longtime practitioner of bilingual acquisition in children. It explores the subject in unusual depth from a practical standpoint, focusing on the day-to-day reality of effectively, and enjoyably, fueling language development.
- Like my blog, I hope this book will not only be informative and encouraging, but engaging to read. Although some of the content naturally overlaps with my work online, I’ve also gone far beyond the blog to provide a wealth of new material, diving deep into the ways of thinking and acting that can lead to more productive efforts and stronger progress.
The preview edition of Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability is almost ready. Over the next week or two, I’ll complete the manuscript and then send an email to those people who have expressed interest in possibly reading it and offering feedback. But in order to receive that message, with further information, you must be on a special email list for the book. If you’re not already on that list (it’s separate from my newsletter list), you can add your email address right now. Again, this is your last chance to be one of the first readers!
Sorry, this list is now closed.
