Learning Latin Through Mythology is a highly illustrated workbook to introduce elementary students to Latin using simplified versions of the popular myths of ancient Greece and Rome. The book consists of thirteen units, each including a short English version of a myth, an illustrated Latin version with vocabulary explanations, a related Latin grammar activity, plus related writing and open-ended projects. Innovative review exercises enhance the thirteen units. It captures students' interest in Latin through the myths, motivating them to translate the Latin and complete the other activities. References to mythology are commonplace in advertising, the media and the theater, and so it is essential that students understand the allusions to mythological characters. The lively and unique approach to learning Latin demonstrated by this workbook makes Learning Latin Through Mythology an interesting and useful introduction to simple Latin.
