National Literary Trust – based out of London, this organization shares case studies and news articles about how to engage children to read. They also designed a site specifically for parents to help guide them through their children’s reading journey: Words for Life.

The Center for Applied Linguistics – a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting bilingual literacy.

  1. I’m always looking for suggestions on books to add to our collection. Know of any good book review sights, reading lists, etc. aimed at toddlers?

  2. Im a linguist myself and my daughter is bilingual and has some knowledge of french and italian basics like sounds, colors, numbers). What youre doing with your child and on this blog is amazing. The more you read the more extensive their vocabulary and recognition of letters, sounds and words, besides is super fun!

    • Thank you so much. I’m so happy you stopped by. We’re in the process of teaching Oster French (I speak enough to get by…my husband speaks basic Spanish). I appreciate your words of support!
