Understanding and incorporating the assets Spanish-speaking emergent bilingual learners possess into classroom instruction is essential to their success. This book is a timely, accessible guide that will build on teachers’ skills repertoire in reading. It is a must-have!

Translanguaging: The Key to Comprehension for Spanish Speaking Students and Their Peers is a must havefor districts and teachers serving English language leaners and dual immersion students. Lubliner and Grisham provide culturally relevant scenarios, techniques that are actionable and an effective approach to maximizing the potential of language learning students. After years of being without an effective and comprehensive curriculum for ELD instruction, this book has been a saving grace. I have used the cognate methods with various groups of students ranging from Spanish-only speaking newcomers to native English speaking dual language students within the same classroom and across different subject areas. I have found that starting the school year with the book's lessons on cognate instruction fosters a sense on inclusivity among both Spanish and English language learners and serves as a bridge to both languages throughout the school year. I have found that the progression of lessons in the book have made learning a language feel less daunting for students, fosters a sense on inclusivity and serves as a bridge to both languages not just in school but in their daily lives outside of school as well. The strategies throughout the book empower students to take risks as language learners and become teachers of their native languages. (Raquel Pilar Moran Huerta, MA, Educational Leadership; 5th grade Dual Language Teacher)
