Summary

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 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 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.
