Abstract/Notes: This article explores the benefits and challenges of a Spanish language immersion preschool from the perspective of a non-Spanish speaking African American family.  Data explored include the decision to enroll, reactions from peers and family, home-school communication issues, language development, and family involvement.  In addition, recommendations for families considering this bilingual option are considered. The primary data used for this article come from 127 journal entries written by the mother of the child from the beginning of the preschool admissions process until the end of preschool.

Abstract/Notes: [...]the first time I saw a wild animal in person was at a Ugandan zoo at the age of 12. The Baganda people (as well as the people of other African ethnic groups) attach great importance, pride, and respect to their king and kingdoms, as well as to regional leaders called chiefs. Invite individuals to your classroom to share cultural artifacts, languages, clothing, food, music, and anything else that will enrich children's understanding of the African continent and its people and expand their worldview Now, 8 years into my career as a Montessori teacher, I am lucky that I have the platform and the tools to help young children appreciate and celebrate cultural diversity. While it's true that the African continent is home to a number of major national parks, with some of the world's most fascinating animals, especially the "Big Five" (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo), reducing an entire continent to just animals is a dangerous distortion of perspective for curious young minds.
