If you are expecting a baby and if that is the first one in your life, what would you say if I told you that you could speak to your baby not only in one language but in two or even more? Think about an idea that could give your kid a strong head start in her life. Kids' brain is like a sponge. They learn naturally everything what is around them, what they can see and hear. Wouldn't that be fantastic for a child to speak more than one language in her life?

I loved it!! This precious little book contains all the basic informations you need to get started with your kids' bilingualism. It faces the themes in a funny entertaining way, as it's actually the baby speaking! ;) Since I read it I keep it on my night table to have a look at it every time I feel my determination falter. Even though it's a book for adults, it looks like a book for children, and kids love its funny drawings!

A great gift for all new parents who might hesitate about raising their kid bilingual.
Pavel Goldaev's cute drawings illustrate the words of Adam Beck, an expert in the matter of bilingual children. (His book Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability is the logical in-depth follow-up to
