Espinosa and Ascenzi-Moreno demonstrate how our emergent bilingual students who speak two or more languages in their daily lives-- thrive when they are able to use "translanguaging" to tap the power of their entire linguistic and sociocultural repertoires. Additionally, the authors present rich and thoughtful literacy practices that propel emergent bilinguals into reading and writing success. The core of this approach is honoring and leveraging the language and cultural resources emergent bilinguals bring to school-- and rooting instruction in their strengths. Knowing more than one language is, indeed, a gift to the classroom Includes a foreword by Ofelia Garcia.
