Brando Brown Canem Vult
Level 1 and up / Novice Low — Novice High
Brando Brown really wants a dog, but his mother is not quite so sure. A dog is a big responsibility for any age, much less a soon-to-be 9-year-old. Determined to get a dog, Brando will do almost anything to get one, but will he do everything it takes to keep one…a secret?
The exceptionally low unique word count and high-frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Brandon Brown Canem Vult – Latin Reader’, make this an ideal read for very beginning Latin students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and Latin), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible.
