In December 2015 this new NFP organisation Attitude Books Foundation Inc. was established to carry on the work that was more than this one person could tackle alone. I am forever grateful to the five community minded people who stepped up to offer their support as Directors, so that we could register this group. Creating a NFP with a strong and committed team, means that this initiative now has more ability to reach out and achieve its goal of getting A for Attitude to every grade 3 child every year.
This website will remain for the time being, but the main focus will be the new Foundation website where schools can become eligible to receive books, P&C groups can fund-raise and families can join the Can Do Kids Club.
Rotary Youth Director Claire Burns and Julie visited Our Lady of Fatima school in Rosebud recently, to chat with the grade 3 students as a part of the Attitude Books Project.
DP Marita O'Sullivan, pictured top left, is a great supporter of our book and other resources.

Down where the waves splashed, along the seashore,
was Maisey's small shell shop with seashells galore.
Miss Maisey was famous throughout the whole land,

Just as a child's body needs nourishment and exercise to stay fit and healthy, so does their mind!
The earlier in life that your child receives 'positive mental nutrition', the happier, healthier and more successful they are likely to be.

• capable of solving his or her own problems?, and
• good at managing money and managing without it?
