Synopsis

An innovative and accessible way to begin teaching Latin to children of any age

Narrated by the chatty and imaginative Roman poet Ovid (who lived in Rome during the first century BC), this new course takes young learners on a journey through some of the tales from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. From Daedalus to the story of Orpheus, Lorna Robinson uses Ovid’s stories to teach Latin grammar and vocabulary, exploring the relationship between Latin and English to enhance literacy as well as encouraging children’s imaginations by asking them to discuss how Ovid’s themes are still topical today. At the end of each chapter there are suggested activities to help learners reinforce what they have just learned. The illustrations bring Ovid’s stories alive for a wide range of learners, making this book the ideal first introduction to Latin.
