'Jürgen M. Meisel is an internationally respected authority on child bilingualism. Bilingual Children is a beautifully written, eminently readable guide for parents and caregivers who want to understand the advantages and (mostly mythical) drawbacks of raising children with a command of two or more languages. The book is a practical, research-informed guide on how to do it successfully, whether within a family or a societal bi- or multilingual setting, when the child's first exposure to the languages is simultaneous or sequential, and for children of different starting ages. Highly recommended.' Michael H. Long, University of Maryland
