"Through this cutting-edge volume Yolanda Ruiz de Zarobe and Leyre Ruiz de Zarobe of the Universidad del País Vasco have meticulously shared their broad experiences within the multilingual academic panorama of Spain and Europe. With collaboration from prominent scholars and teachers across the disciplines, they present unique theoretical and pedagogical perspectives on multilingual reading development and instruction. Since reading in a foreign language is a complex cognitive skill, and one that is unique from reading in a native language, it deserves significant attention. The editors have recognized this via a multidisciplinary focus ranging from discourse analytic, linguistic, and cognitive to socio-cognitive and pedagogical perspectives on the theme. They additionally highlight reading in a foreign language within distinct populations and reading for varying purposes." ------ Diana Pulido, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Curriculum and Instruction & Foreign Language Education, The University of Texas at Austin.
