Julie Davey's interest in the mind-body connection, lead to A for Attitude being self-published in 1998 for distribution in Australia and New Zealand. It was subsequently reprinted by Random House in 1999.
Since then, the A for
Attitude range has grown in both scope and territory. In 2002, Times publishers in Singapore licensed the rights for Asia and distributed the book in ten Asian countries,
including a special edition for India.
In 2011, A for Attitude, Attitude in Action, R for Richlife and The FabFirst5 were all republished as the uniform 'All about...' series.
They are now distributed in: Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Brunei, the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Hong Kong and China.
In 2012 the entire series was translated into Korean.
16 years, 11 print runs and 40,000 copies after its first printrun, this edition of A for Atttitude certainly looks very different to our original book which was wiro-bound and much smaller. In this version, illustrations have been resized to suit the Korean style but again, the text is unchanged.
'All about Attitude' quickly ranked #3 in Kyobo's children's list, one of the most famous book stores in Korea.
In 2013, All about Attitude was transformed yet again when the text was translated into the Thai language.
This version has the text in both English and Thai.
Watch this space – because in 2015:
The 'All about ...' series will be translated into Vietnamese, and
The FabFirst5 program will be translated into Japanese!
After speaking at the Positive Schools conferences in 2013, Julie was invited to contribute an article on the history and value of the FabFirst5 program for a new collaborative book. In this new release; "Better than OK" you'll find that story alongside the works of esteemed speakers and authors such as Maggie Dent, Prof Tim Sharp and Andrew Fuller.
For a limited time, you can purchase this book at an exclusive discount.
