Timberdoodle's review Learn more
I am not the best candidate to review a Latin program. Unlike Spanish, of which I had 8 years of 'formal' instruction, my instruction of Latin was sporadic at best. Between grades 1 and 12 I attended 8 different schools each with their own scholastic goals, some which paralleled what is now called classical education and some which just tried to keep the kids off the street. To those who took the effort to teach Latin, I am indebted, as what little I picked up has been invaluable.

Over the years we have had the opportunity to review a number of Latin programs. Academically they may have been marvelous programs, but they looked so dreary, I didn't even try to pitch them to our kids, as it would have been a no sale. No so with Latin for Children. Engaging and incremental, these textbooks are filled with clear explanations, illustrations, exercises, and tests. Workbook format, each of the 32 chapters contains songs and chants that enable students to easily learn over 240 of the most frequently occurring words and grammar. The collaborative efforts of three Latin teachers, these books are the fruit of seven years of research and testing.

I suppose what makes Latin for Children so appealing to us is that it is idiot-proof. With easy to understand grammar sections learning Latin is not only painless but also enjoyable. Who uses Latin? Doctors, theologians, botanists and lawyers to name just a few. Not only is it the root of many popular foreign languages, nearly 50% of English words are derived from Latin words. Not too bad for a dead language!

If your children are interested in learning Latin, Latin for Children is an excellent place to start.
Bundle C includes 1 of each: Primer workbook, Answer Keys (the actual text with answers in bold print), History Reader (Latin stories from history), Activity Book (games and puzzles that reinforce the new Latin vocabulary and grammar), and Pronunciation CD. The Pronunciation CD is an audio CD that contains Dr. Perrin pronouncing each vocabulary word--first the Latin, then the English equivalent--which is then repeated by his children. All 240 vocabulary words are presented, chapter by chapter, first with the Classical pronunciation then in the Ecclesiastical pronunciation.

Each child will need their own Primer workbook and Activity Book, so if you are teaching more than one child at a time, you will need to purchase these additional items. If you have never studied Latin, we recommend starting with Bundle A
. Each book (Primers B & C) is a succession upon the previous book. They are intended to be taught sequentially beginning with Primer A (target grade: 3rd) and moving up the alphabet, one book per school year.

Please note: Timberdoodle's bundle does not include the Latin for Children DVD some of you are familiar with since we do not feel that it is a necessary component.
