The Little Latin Readers Story

“Mommy, I can read Latin!”

Wouldn’t you like to hear your child say that? With Little Latin Readers, a carefully progressing series, learning the language of the Church comes easily and naturally for students of all ages.

Featuring short stories, simple poems and dialogues, these small-format readers, workbooks and pronunciation CDs will give beginning Latin students an important sense of achievement and success.

The beginning levels include a reader, workbook, drill book and 2 pronunciation CD’s, and the intermediate levels feature a reader, workbook and one CD.

The readers are small format (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″) and have 45-50 pages. Translations included at the back of each reader.

The 40-50 page workbooks give an in-depth explanation of the grammar used in the reader and provide exercises and drills of grammar concepts. Also included: complete answer key and a 14-week suggested lesson plan. Size is 8-1/2″ x 11″.

The audio pronunciation CD includes the correct pronunciation for all the words presented in the reader. An essential resource!

Students of all ages will enjoy selections about ancient Rome, scenes from the lives of children, and stories about the early Church. The illustrated readers and workbooks include explanations of grammar concepts, cumulative vocabulary reviews, reading drills, translations of all selections, and a Latin-English dictionary for easy reference.

One of the great strengths about the LLR program is that it combines the best features that are most effective in learning a language: immersion at a slow pace, gentle enough for anyone to progress no matter what the age, and explanation and reinforcement of grammar concepts, while being able to use the CDs as a guide to correct pronunciation.

Our Vision

Inspired by the model of Bob Books, which are little books based on simple words for beginning English readers, we designed Little Latin Readers to be small, hand-sized readers with short, simple Latin stories introducing a limited number of concepts and vocabulary words in gradually progressing levels.

Students from the second grade on up are able to begin the study of Latin. The series is designed so elementary and middle school students will gain sufficient proficiency to advance to a high school Latin program, e.g., Henle Latin, Wheelock’s Latin, or Missal Latin with ease and confidence.

Little Latin Readers will have your child reading and speaking Latin today!
