This book is exactly what parents of multilingual children have been looking for: an inspiring, entertaining, and at the same time scientifically accurate account of what it means to raise children with more than two languages. The book is packed with facts, ideas, and advice for parents and it shows both the benefits and the challenges of early multilingualism. (Antonella Sorace, University of Edinburgh, UK)
This is the first reader friendly book of advice on trilingual upbringing to appear, illustrated by three case studies from parents who have experienced the tactics that worked and some which backfired. The well-informed, knowledgeable authors provide an excellent balance between fascinating personal anecdotes and serious commentary which includes many tips, practical hints and some warnings on how to cope with the challenges involved. (Hugo Baetens Beardsmore, Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium)
