At the forefront in focusing exclusively on biliteracy development in early childhood across a variety of languages, this book fills a pressing need for a resource that provides both findings from empirical research with young bilinguals from preschool to grade 3 in home and school contexts and practical applications of these findings. Part I provides a contextual and conceptual framework that encompasses the specific need to do systematic research on emergent biliteracy development and its transition into conventional literacy in two languages during the early years. Part II focuses on the various factors/skills that impact young bilinguals' literacy development across different languages, with attention to both reading and/or writing. Pushing the field forward, this book is a valuable resource for helping literacy educators understand and respond to critical issues related to the development of young children's literate competencies in two languages in home and school contexts.
