Description

Caecilia, a young girl living in ancient Rome, introduces herself, her family, and aspects of her world—all in elementary Latin. Even young children can make meaning of the Latin through the engaging illustrations and photographs; this is reinforced by repetition of the vocabulary.

This book contains a link to downloadable audio files of the author reading each page to ensure proper pronunciation.

Dr. Spielhagen says:

“I followed a gradual release of forms and vocabulary, with explanations given on a need-to-know basis. I built on students’ prior knowledge—presumed, assumed, and elicited—in an effort to scaffold their learning of the new Latin forms.”

This book also comes in a version that is printed with a special dyslexia-friendly font that is easier for some children to read. There is an accompanying instructor manual that serves both books. (See below.)
