Review of Activitates Liberis: Leap into Latin

"With materials contributed over the years by many talented educators, this treasure trove of activities and lessons belongs in the library of every Latin teacher! Even if your students cannot attend a LatinSummer session, you can bring some of the magic of LatinSummer to them during the regular school year. Within the pages of Leap into Latin, elementary and middle school teachers will find more than enough material to create a rich and rewarding exploratory course, while high school instructors will love being able to pick and choose fun and meaningful supplementary activities that enhance and build upon formal textbook instruction."
