Thomas: First Latin Translation Book
First Latin Translation Book by A. H. Thomas (1902)
This is a wonderful little book that starts out with extremely easy readings and builds up to more difficult passages, with all kinds of fun stories, with ancient stories but also modern folktales and fairy tales like the Brave Little Tailor and The Forty Thieves. There are also extended passages about Theseus and about Gaius Marius. There are explanatory notes and a comprehensive vocabulary.
