This bilingual picture book is interesting because of its use of an uncommon language – Latin. There are not many books introducing Latin to young readers. However, while this book is useful because of its rarity it did not live up to its full potential. The artwork severely detracted from the book, as the pictures were not engaging nor did they assist the “story.” The format of the book was problematic; instead of printing the word in Latin and English, next to the picture, only the Latin was provided. To truly determine what the English equivalent was it was necessary to look at the translation guide in the back of the book. The necessary flipping back and forth was distracting. The glossary, which gave additional vocabulary, and pronunciation guide were useful.

Experts recommend that children start a foreign language as early as possible. With this book, a child can start learning Latin at age four. Latin is an excellent foreign language to select. Just ask any lawyer, doctor, scientist, or nurse.
