Languages, Scripts, and the Environment: Factors in Developing Concepts of Print.
Bialystok, Ellen; Shenfield, Tali; Codd, Judith
Developmental Psychology, v36 n1 p66-76 Jan 2000
Examined understanding of print concepts in preschool children bilingual in English and Hebrew. Found that bilingual children were more advanced than monolinguals, regardless of task (understanding that a printed word's meaning did not change if moved to a new location, making judgments about word length and ignoring the object's size) or whether English or Hebrew was the community language.
