Olim, Once Upon a Time in Latin Reader II and Workbook II is part of a series of six Latin readers and workbooks. No prior Latin experience is required for any of the readers or workbooks. Answers are provided in the back of the book. The front of the workbook has a pronunciation guide and list of Roman Numerals.
The reader contains three stories written first in English and then in Latin. Nearly every page had vocabulary words, grammar key and translations in the margins. The stories also had several lovely illustrations that worked as visual aids much like other early readers. Reader II contained two stories from the Bible and a fable. My oldest son is the most interested in learning Latin and he expressed interest in obtaining the rest of the readers to use alongside his Latin course for extra translation practice. My daughter worked through several of the lessons and reader on her own. She liked that the works was not hard and she enjoyed the ability to read and translate a story in Latin. I liked that the lessons were short enough to fit our Charlotte Mason approach to education
Other than helping her to pronounce a few words the curriculum was mostly hands off for me. The reader always directed her to the proper pages to be done in the workbook after reading a section. She always managed to get her lessons done in fifteen to twenty minutes each day. I thought this was a great curriculum for an early introduction to Latin.
