Language Strategies for Bilingual Families: The One-Parent-One-Language Approach

Skier, Eric M.

The volume, Language Strategies for Bilingual Families: The One-Parent-One-Language Approach, written by Suzanne Barron-Hauwaert, is a well-organized report on bilingualism and the one-parent-one-language approach (OPOL) to raising children in bilingual families that straddles the line. Unlike many research studies, which are only intended for an academic audience, the writer has attempted to provide both a researched yet practical guide for parents of differing linguistic backgrounds who hope to raise their children bilingually. Generally speaking, the approaches the author takes in presenting her data are both informative and accessible to the lay reader.
