This resource document presents research on first and second language acquisition, home environments, and other cultural factors that affect the cognitive or affective development of bilingual minority-group children, such as child-rearing practices, styles of learning and coping, and values and attitudes. Sections are devoted to the nature of language, linguistic diversity, child language acquisition, becoming bilingual, profiles of bilingual children, and implications for early-childhood program development. Included are appendixes which provide more detailed information on the specific ethnic groups and an extensive bibliography. (Author/SK)
