Book Summary

Matthew and Sprite are playing a game on the beach when Sprite loses the stick. They both hear a cry for help and come to the rescue.
A book about caring for the environment


I enjoyed the new book, Sprite and the Two Talking Turtles, as much as her last one. It continues with the adventures of Matthew and his dog Sprite, and once again deals with an important issue - in this case, the problem of plastics on beaches. This book teaches young children a lot but equally engages and inspires them with a compelling story, clever rhyming and some beautiful illustrations. This is highly recommended for all parents and teachers who want to raise environmental awareness with an adventure story but not lose the interest of their children. A ‘must buy.’

My grandkids were absolutely thrilled at having your inscription on the first page; and after many weeks of giving them these books which they enjoyed and loved so much, I wanted to read them a bedtime story and out of their huge library, they point at your two books again. They love these stories and the colourful pictures so much and they have learned a lot about pollution and conservation because of Sprite and the turtles. These two books “Matthew and the Magic Goat “and “Sprite and the Two Talking Turtles” are two of their favourites ever, and all children should really have them!! Thank you, Carmen, for writing these beautiful books and we can't wait to get your Christmas storybook!

Throughout my career I have developed and demonstrated my superb communication skills establishing and fostering productive relationships with internal and external stakeholders, collaborating across all professional levels and with parents to encourage involvement in student learning. When educating young children, it is vital to incorporate parents into the learning process, and Ofsted has noted my relationship with parents as ‘exemplary,’ which is a true point of pride for me.

Working in team environments I have established a record as a supportive mentor and coach, motivating individuals and teams to achieve their professional best. My background includes multiple situations where I have had the opportunity to leverage my professional experience and training to improve practices and the overall quality of instruction.

In addition to my teaching and training roles, I have written and published children’s books focusing on inclusion, using books to support children’s personal, social, and emotional development as well as their communication and language skills.

Service has always been very important to me, and I have volunteered at the Bulembu School in Swaziland, assisting the principal with program and curriculum development. I also volunteered at Epsom RDA, supporting disabled children and young adults.

I would like to bring my extensive experience working with young children, my dedication to continuous improvement, and superb communication skills to helping children grow and develop.
