This second book by Suzanne Barron-Hauwaert focuses on language strategies in families with more than one child and more particularly on how siblings interact with each other in bilingual families. Combining analyses of the questionnaire data she used in her previous book with easy-to-read reports of some of the scientific literature on the topic, Barron-Hauwaert discusses issues such as age difference and family size, gender, birth order, as well as dedicating a family to twins, adoption, single parents and step-families. A very useful read for expanding families!
