Simple Latin Stories to Read!

The Tarheel Reader website is an online collection of free, easy-to-read, accessible books.  A joint project of the Center for Literacy and Disability Studies and the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel, this is a great way to create and publish simple, illustrated stories.  Laura Gibbs, author of Aesop's Fables in Latin,  creator of the LatinViaFables website and instructor at the University of Oklahoma, recently requested that Latin be added to the growing range of tagged libraries.  Laura has already written and posted a short story about lions in Latin entitled De Leone.   Be watching for more stories, or consider writing your own!    

Tarheel Reader electronic books can be downloaded in a variety of formats, including Powerpoint and Flash.
