Books about multilingual families?
Help! Does anybody know good books about raising a child multilingual? Found a few about biligual families, but I'm looking for one that deals especially with multilinguality.
I'm german, my husband english and we live in the Netherlands. And I thought, we'd be quiet stupid not to try it at least. I'm learning Dutch since half a year. He doesn't speak German, but understands a little bit by listening. So I got a lot of questions.
Thanks for helping!

Just talk to him in all of the languages. Call things by their name in English one time, and then maybe the next in German. Your child will pick up that everything has more than one name, and the hard part might be separating the languages. I don't have much experience with this, though.
