They view emergent bilingual students from a multilingual perspective that is "based on a holistic view of the bilingual learner, including validation of students' cultural and linguistic backgrounds as resources for learning" p. In their powerful book, Bauer and Gort review the scarce research on the literacy development of young children preschool through third grade who live with two or more languages. Such scarcity of research is problematic given the growing number of culturally and linguistically diverse students in US schools. The book is organized into three parts, each of which begins with a vignette and includes some questions for the reader to consider when reading.
Part I, "Emergence of Biliteracy: The Preschool Years," introduces three studies that focus on biliteracy development for young learners in the contexts of school and home. In Chapter 2, for example, Bauer and Mkhize consider the role of parents and caregivers in supporting young bilinguals' language development.
Early biliteracy development : exploring young learners' use of their linguistic resources
The authors conclude that, at home, adults have the power to scaffold language learning for children and that a supportive and nurturing home context supports the development of two languages. Part II, "Biliteracy Development in Early Elementary School," focuses on studies of emergent bilingual students in kindergarten-3rd grade in different instructional contexts.
