Item Description...
Mater Anserina is a delightful book of twenty-eight poems, many of them favorites from Mother Goose, rendered in Latin, with the English translation on facing pages. Designated specifically for early learners of Latin, the nursery rhymes are designed for reciting or singing, with the particular aim of giving young students an introduction to Latin pronunciation. The book comes with an audio CD of all rhymes in the book.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Absolutely Delightful  May 28, 2007
Mater Anserina is a charming book in all respects. It is beautifully illustrated, has side-by-side translations and a useful vocabulary. The CD has the clearest Latin sung/read that I have heard in a long time. Thoroughly recommended.
 
Mater Anserina  Mar 15, 2007
Mater Anserina is a prettily designed book. Favorite Mother Goose rhymes are printed on facing pages with Latin versions rendering the original accentual schemes. Graceful Kate Greenaway illustrations appear on the same page with some of the Latin versions, and there is a useful list of Latin vocabulary at the foot of each (Latin) page. Practice these rhymes at home, and then try them out on your high-schoolers or undergraduates. Young people probably won't recognize many of the selections (although they may know Itsy Bitsy Spider and the first verse of Yankee Doodle); you may have to teach them the tunes.
This book could serve as a lovely, reasonably priced end-of-term gift for a favorite teacher, or a prize for a Classics Day contest.
 
Euge! Matrem Anserinam Amo! -- I Love Mother Goose!  Mar 9, 2007
This book has 28 familiar Mother Goose rhymes, (e.g.: Mary had a Little Lamb), in both Latin and English. The translations preserve the style, whimsy, and rhythm of the original Mother Goose rhymes. Yet in the translations, there is something new to be gained from the Latin verse; a new perspective on these childhood classics.

For the beginner student, there are footnotes at the bottom of each page which explain the vocabulary used. There is also a preface which explains the accentual verses. It is the only preface of recent memory that is itself an interesting read.

The audio CD is well done, with the singing voice very clear. It is fun to sing along in Latin to these old rhymes! In my opinion, it was fascinating to hear these familiar tunes in this new fashion!

My only complaint about the book is this: there are not enough illustrations. To me, each rhyme should have it's own illustration, or almost all. Only nine of the rhymes have an accompianing illustration. The illustrations that are in the book are charming; reminiscent of the pictures in the book, The Real Mother Goose, which has illustratons depicting the time period in which these rhymes were originally written.

To my delight this period depiction was preserved in this book. Again this is a truly great book to have!
