 This book sheds light on some of the common myths around being bilingual
 and explores the processes of dual language development among Korean
 American children. It sensibly argues that the bilingualism of linguistic
 minority children is a resource to be cultivated and treasured, not a
 problem to be overcome. 
 Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition
