In BILINGUAL IS BETTER, Soto and Floresprovide a sharp, entertaining and provocative narrative on the growing movement of Latino parents who are proudly reclaiming their language and cultural heritage for themselves and their children. They are two Latina mothers willing to do everything for their American-born children to grow up speaking English and Spanish. This unique book goes beyond the mere mechanics of raising bilingual children to reveal the very real experiences of two Latina moms who are bound and determined to make sure their children never forget where they came from.
