This graded reader is a useful book to accompany and supplement any first-year Latin texts currently in use. The Latin is pure, simple, idiomatic, and easily understood by beginning students.
The book's greatest accomplishment is in its masterful presentation of the material. New grammatical forms and constructions are introduced one by one in a carefully graded order. A translation piece never includes a declined form or conjunction which the student has not already learned. As a result, the student is never overwhelmed or frustrated by the material, and he or she is encouraged to continue the learning process.
But the book does more than offer practice in Latin syntax and accidence. Each review features two readings that acquaint the student with the chief events of Roman history and stories from Greek mythology. The edition's value is further enhanced by a listing of Latin references that facilitates the use of the reader as it eliminates the need to consult other grammars.
