Joana Matias portrait
Country Manager, Portugal and Spain

Joana Matias

Hi! My name is Joana, and I work as country manager for the Portuguese and Spanish markets. I have always been passionate about books – something I inherited from my mother! I am also very interested in different languages and cultures. My work involves several tasks such as customer service, marketing and translations. For me, the work of translating, editing and adapting stories is an interesting challenge. Reading has always been a part of me, and one of my goals working with My Best Book is to get the children who read our books to develop a passion for reading, too. 


It’s not easy to pick a favourite book, because each one has its charm. However, if I had to pick a book, I would pick ‘Name and Name’s Time Travels’. The book has fun adventures, educational content with historical facts, and the illustrations are beautiful. The child learns and has fun at the same time.
