Brandon Brown canem vult

Brandon 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, Brandon 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) 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. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Latin without even realizing it! Happy reading!

The novel has some very basic topics grounded in high‐ frequency vocabulary that would fit any level‐one curriculum:

  • Family relationships
  • Growing up and developing independence
  • Honesty and integrity
  • Relationships with friends
  • Birthdays
  • Illness and doctor’s visits
  • Pets and other animals
  • Likes and dislikes
  • Peer pressure
  • Likes and dislikes
  • Variety of verb, noun, and adjective forms

Cultural Context: American Culture vs. Target Cultures

  • Family relationships in the Target Cultures
  • Relationships with friends in the Target Cultures
  • Celebration of birthdays in the Target Cultures
  • The importance of responsibility/duty in the Target Cultures
  • The role of pets or other animals in the Target Cultures
