My 1st book

Found this yesterday at home, while relaxing and reading at my office



Is a latin book, of course. Its name is "Zoro".

The few words are an affectionate message from my dad.

It was my 1st book (not textbook or school I mean) 30 years ago, I was about 7 or 8 I believe ...

Your father is mean! Giving you a Latin book at that age... Most parents would give their children a children's book they could actually read

Hahahaha ...

Actually, was a smart guy! I also read a bunch of comics at that age. At some point, I had over of 500 comics. But "Zoro" is a children's book, easy to understand.

At 4 or 5, I was reading almost perfectly, very fluid!

He was a lawyer / judge, by the way.

Here is a tool to help: translate.google.com, this web site will translate any text from one of about sixty-four different langueges to another languege. I think this may be a help as you read stay near a computer and pull the web site up on the screen so that you can type any phrase that you have problems with on the web site and have it automatically translate the phrase to your native languege.

Maybe I need more coffee this morning! ;-)

I do not understand your comment, or should I say, your point ...
