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 Ovids Metamorphoses. From the history of Ovid's exile, the story of Lycaon (the wild man who became a wold) to Pyramus and Thisbe (the love-struck pair), Lorna Robinson uses Ovids stories to teach Latin grammar and vocabulary, exploring the relationship between Latin and English to enhance literacy as well as encouraging childrens imaginations by asking them to discuss how Ovids 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 Ovids stories alive for a wide range of learners, making this book the ideal first introduction to Latin.
