Give Your Students the Latin Advantage
The Little Latin Readers Series is a Latin language program that offers your students the unparalleled academic and spiritual advantages of learning Latin while strengthening their Catholic identity.
Inspired by the model of Bob Books, which are little books based on simple words for beginning English readers, author Julie Collorafi, a graduate of Christendom College, 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. Workbooks and pronunciation CDs reinforce learning.
The innovative series is written to make learning Latin come easily and naturally for students of all ages.
Students from the second grade on up are able to begin the study of Latin!
