Latin for Children Primer B History Reader


  • Don't stop now! Latin for Children Primer B Program, the second in the Latin for Children series, is just as engaging, incremental, and creative as Latin for Children Primer A Program.

    With the Latin for Children Primer B History Reader, young Latin scholars can begin to translate and read a selection of simple Latin stories at their own level. The stories are integrated with the grammar and vocabulary of Latin for Children Primer B, correspond with the Veritas Press History Card series, and feature stories of the Middle Ages. The History Reader contains glosses for new words in each chapter and a full glossary at the end of the book.

    Note: The History Reader is compatible with both the old version and the new 2018 revised edition of the student primer.
