Book Description

September 2002 An I Am Reading Latin Book
Experts recommend that children start a foreign language as early as possible. With this book, a child can start learning Latin at age four. Latin is an excellent foreign language to select. Just ask any lawyer, doctor, scientist, or nurse.

Aided by original artwork and an English translation, children learn the Latin words for their favorite foods: pizza, chicken fingers, hot dogs, fish sticks. The original artwork is charming and creative. A complete vocabulary and pronunciation guide are provided; a recording of the text will be available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Connecting Latin to English Immediately Nov. 22 2003
By R. Pike
Format:Paperback
I am teaching Latin for the first time this year, and found my students' interest piqued by this humorous book. The sixth grade students perked up with each page, knowing they could decipher the Latin either through English derivatives or whimsical drawings. I have read it to my own children with the same success. The best part is that there is a clear pronunciation guide and glossary at the end of the book, so novices can pick it up and plunge into Latin in a non-threatening way. I look forward to more works like this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Odi asparagatum et amo crustulam! June 24 2005
By nympha marina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a lot of fun to use in the classroom or to read at home with your kids. I teach middle school (grades 6-8) introductory Latin and we had a lot of fun playing "Odi et Amo (I like... / I don't like...)" with the food illustrations in this book to practice nominative vs. the accusative case. My class loved being read to and thoroughly enjoyed the enchanting pictures. This book could certainly be used at any age level, in school or at home.

My 5-year-old granddaughter didn't respond to this story well. I'm an old Latin teacher. She didn't show much interest yet.
