My books are written about insects and creatures that you find in your backyard or on your balcony. These books are set in suburban Australia. Caterpillars, ants, bees, blue-tongue lizards and even slugs and aphids are characters in the books.

Building an extensive vocabulary in young children is so important. The number of words that a child knows (not reading, but using and knowing the meanings) is a key predictor of literacy success.

The main focus of the wording of my stories is to teach children Phonological Awareness skills (hearing, saying and playing with sounds in words). These skills have been proven time and again to be the foundation of all literacy learning (reading, writing and spelling). The Carlos and Friends book series has been specifically written for parents to help preschool children get ready to read in a fun, relaxed way.
