At long last, after three years of work, my new book has been published! I’m thrilled with how it turned out and I’d love for you to read it!
Here’s how the book is described…
Bilingual Success Stories Around the World: Parents Raising Multilingual Kids Share Their Experiences and Encouragement is a real-life roadmap to greater success and joy for any parent raising bilingual or multilingual children. Written by Adam Beck, in the same empowering spirit as his influential first book Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability, this practical, worldly-wise guide features the success stories of a wide range of families and details the kinds of attitudes and actions that can enable your family to enjoy the same sort of rewarding success. The focus of this book is on the actual practice of raising children to acquire active ability in more than one language, conveyed through the revealing experiences of parents who are now succeeding admirably at their bilingual or multilingual aim. Read this book for ideas and inspiration to help you realize your own family’s joyful success story!
From the Foreword by Dr. Annick De Houwer, Director of HaBilNet
“The engaging book you’re about to read focuses on parents who are successfully raising children who are fluent in a minority language spoken at home. The book tells the stories of 26 families from across the globe, from China through Poland to California, representing scores of minority languages, from Mongolian in Denmark to Hindi in the United States. The stories tell of dedication, effort, perseverance, and love–love for minority languages, and, above all, for the children who speak them.”

I hope you enjoy reading Bilingual Success Stories Around the World and you find that the experiences it describes are encouraging for your own. In fact, a number of the success stories you’ll read about are the experiences of members of The Bilingual Zoo. I want to thank them, as well as the other parents whose stories are included in the book, for so generously sharing their lives with me, as the writer, and with us all, as readers.
