“Latin texts with only 40 unique words are EXACTLY what the profession needs right now…and we need a lot of them.”
– Stephen Krashen on Rūfus et arma ātra

“This book was very good. I feel like when we did our army unit this book would’ve been great to read. I knew most of the words, and only had to look up a few, which was nice. The book wasn’t too easy and also wasn’t too hard so it took just the right amount of time to read.”
– Latin 2 high school student on Rūfus et arma ātra

“This book is like a Dr Seuss book in Latin. Repetition can get boring, but Dr. Seuss and Lance Piantaggini do it well… It’s a really compelling story.”
Amazon Review of Rūfus et arma ātra

“I think the Latin is very intelligible, and I love the idea of having something that has metered poetry in it that’s appropriate for a level 1 or 2 student.”
 Latin Teacher on Pīsō Ille Poētulus

“I very much like it. I want to keep reading and take it home. Some words I don’t know, and they are repeated several times so I can keep reading. I’m surprised that I can read in Latin.”
– Latin 2 high school student on Agrippīna: māter fortis
