"Bilingualism in Development: Language, Literacy, and Cognition," by Ellen Bialystok. Book Review.
Bilingual Research Journal, v26 n3 p729-35 Fall 2002
This book assembles a wide range of research on children's language development, interprets it with analyses of how bilingualism affects that development, and, above all, breaks the myths surrounding bilingualism and bilingual education. The urgency about introducing language minority children to English immediately in schools, and about mainstreaming them as early as possible has no basis in fact. (TD)
