This is probably the most delightful and accessible book written on language development.

How do they organize and analyze them? How do they ultimately come to understand and reproduce these sounds?
Finally, how does the ability to communicate through language emerge in children? For the more academically oriented reader, this book describes research on the intellectual development of bilingual children, showing how it is different from that of monolingual children. The focus is on preschool children, examining how they learn language and how they acquire literacy skills.

Parents interested in the schooling their children receive may also find it useful. Early childhood educators of linguistically diverse preschoolers will find this a practical resource. A child at this young age does not have enough social skills to compensate for his initial lack of competence in a different language.
