Ursus et Porcus

Ursus et Porcus: The Bear and the Pig
by Rose Williams



Ursus et Porcus is the first book of the four-book series, "I Am Reading Latin Stories." Original illustrations and a simple Latin story (using only 35 words) tell of animals in the forest finding friendship and cooperation.

The book has features that make reading Latin fun for young children as well as educational: simple Latin questions; an English translation; Latin pronunciation guides; a glossary of Latin words; English derivatives; and notes about basic Latin nouns and verbs.

Each book may be read independently, but as the series progresses, new elements of Latin are gradually added. Ursus et Porcus uses a limited Latin vocabulary, with only present and future tense verbs, and nouns mainly in the nominative and accusative cases.
