Good Questions

Q: Does anyone have any advice for introducing a toddler to a second language? I'm looking for music, tv/dvd, games, etc. that toddlers can easily engage with that give them some exposure to another language. Any thoughts? Thank you!

Editor: A few of my friends are in the midst of doing this and they report that the best way is to speak the second language around the child as often as possible. They also like reading books in the second language to their child. Readers - what have you found useful and effective?
