Summary
"This exciting book reveals for the first time the wealth and complexities of the knowledge, connections and creativity that young children use in the process of becoming biliterate. The stories of London six-year-olds learning to write in Chinese, Arabic or Spanish as well as English are compelling evidence that young children are entirely capable of learning more than one writing system at the same time. This account illustrates what an advantage biliteracy is - the children find out how each system works, and develop their visual and kinaesthetic skills by using different scripts." "With primary school language learning set to expand, this book is a timely resource for early years teachers, EMAG teams, students of bilingualism and teacher educators."--Jacket
