The current study examined the literacy skills that a bilingual first grader uses when reading and discussing texts in Greek and English. I worked with a first grader, Lauren, and her mother. The study consisted of interviewing the participants, assessing Lauren’s literacy skills, and observing Lauren and her mother read together. The findings of this study were that Lauren uses the same literacy strategies when reading books in Greek and English (this finding is concurrent with other studies) Lauren’s reading skills in Greek are less advanced than her reading skills in English and that the student prefers reading in English, but likes to discuss texts in Greek. This study has implications for school librarians as well as for foreign language instruction.
