Color-learning with a new twist: in Latin.
Aided by original artwork and an English translation, children learn the Latin words for a full range of colors: red, yellow, blue, pink, white, gray, black, purple, brown, green. In the process of learning the color words, they also learn words for apple, flower, pet, food, bird, and canary. Finally they get to select their favorite color. The original artwork is charming and creative. A complete vocabulary, with emphasis on derivatives, and pronunciation guide are provided; a recording of the text is also available.
