Attitude Books Foundation inc. – our Not For Profit organisation

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 fundraise and families can join the Can Do Kids Club.

Rotary Youth Director Claire Burns and I visited Our Lady of Fatima school in Rosebud this week 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.

Can Do Kids Club Community event for Mornington region will be held at PCT on Thursday 4th May

Our new, fun, rhyming e-book for little ones

Here's our latest book; She Sells Seashells, available on iBooks and Kindle. It's rhyming, tongue twisting fun for ages 3-7 and of course... there's a moral message in there as well :–)


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,
for the seashells she sold, down there on the sand.


Maisey made tutus, bikinis and more,

but it was her nose-shades that she was known for...

The earlier in life that your child receives 'positive mental nutrition', the happier, healthier and more successful they are likely to be.

Prevention better than cure



“Begin with the end in mind”, so picture this...

Way ahead in the future, when your child turns 21, is he or she likely to be:

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