The strongest merit of this collective book is that readers are inspired from the variety of solutions described, which has transformed education for multilingual students. --International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism "...confirms the authors' and editors' commitment to humanizing pedagogy, relationships, and care by illuminating the often-overlooked work of educators who affirm diversity and who seek to build a better world for and with their students and families. What this volume ultimately offers are multiple examples of school programs and models that other educators, scholars, and teacher educators can adapt, leaving readers with a message much like that of a student's poster referenced in Chapter Ten: !Si Se Puede!--You Can Do It!" --Teachers College Record
