The Attitude Doc

Change yourself a little. Change the world a lot!

Changing the world, one attitude at a time.


Endangered Species Have Feelings Too: Children of All Ages.

This unique coloring book gives children something fun to do, but also makes them acutely aware of the growing epidemic surrounding the world’s endangered animals. Twenty-six endangered animals narrate their own stories, providing space for children to draw, color or write down their thoughts and expand their “feelings vocabulary”.

This is a remarkable tool for developing emotional growth skills through awareness of the life cycles and the needs and disappearance of imperiled species on our fragile planet. Revised edition included Fascinating Fact portion of each species.

Attitude Beliefs and Choices: Are Yours Creating the Life You Desire?

Do you want to change the way you perceive life, your self-image or even your past experiences? Are you willing to evaluate your belief structure and how you came to be who you are? Are you ready to feel happier and live a more fulfilling life?
If, yes, then read: Attitudes, Beliefs and Choices.

From Aware to Zealous this resource of life’s powerful emotions offers wisdom, humor, and guidance in the search for personal identity and meaning. Feelings such as Betrayed and Determined, Grateful and Judgmental, Powerless and Trustful are authentically explored through insightful narrative, case studies and personal accounts, poetry and children’s art. With the compassion of a true healer Alexandria Delis-Abrams opens up the inner world of human emotion, offering mastery and fulfillment, whatever your personal quest.


Endangered Species Have Feelings Too

Author of four award-winning books, Delis-Abrams has collaborated with long-time friend Howard to produce a hands-on book that is not only replete with eye-catching pencil drawings of animals for children to color, but also includes vital information that goes beyond traditional educational formats. Each of the twenty-six endangered species in this collection is presented in first person narrative (instead of third person) that is set within two succinct paragraphs. Their personal stories are further enhanced by their feelings, both positive and negative, about their environment. While the first paragraph captures the species distinctive qualities, the second paragraph is most startling since children sadly learn how endangered species continue to be abused by humankind. Delis-Abrams’ use of positive “I” statements, such as “I feel bold” and negative ones, such as “I feel baffled,” makes it possible for children to understand that animals have feelings, too, even if they cannot communicate on the same level as humans. This association with feelings enables children to develop compassion for other species that not only inhabit, but also play vital roles in their world. Excellent examples of these essential roles include their part in the food chain and within the ecosystem to maintain balance in the environment and pollination for plant growth.

Complete with a glossary of terms used in the narratives, a “What You Can Do” call-to-action page and additional resources for further research. This is an excellent activity book that should be utilized both at home and at school.

Attitude Beliefs and Choices: Are Yours Creating the Life You Desire?

Three factors influence our ability to create the life we want. Alexandra Delis-Abrams, Ph.D., illustrates these core principles all too well in her book, “Attitudes, Beliefs and Choices: Are Yours Creating the Life You Desire?”

Reading this book is a capital “I” for insightful and inspirational as it invites readers to recognize and honor their inner world of feelings and experiences. By incorporating research, personal anecdotes, client histories, and even some spiritual guidance—the author provides a well-rounded and comprehensive guide on how to:

  • — Recognize acquired attitudes about life.
  • — Realize that those perceptions stem from beliefs instilled early on.
  • — Reach for the clarity and confidence of a “sage,” tapping into the power behind making wise choices.

The material stands the test of time, with various self-help tools woven into the content from Socrates and Buddha.

As “Attitudes…” is not a cover-to-cover read, it can be picked up or resumed, at any random page, guided by a word that “speaks” to the reader, or by following an intuitional nudge where a finger scrolling thru the index, stops.

Each chapter is titled with three different feeling words, i.e., “Balanced, Betrayed, Brave” for each letter of the alphabet—followed by an easy-to-read story-type account related to that feeling. It concludes with ten “Reflection Time” questions that can be revelatory and life-changing if answered with deep awareness and honesty. After all, how often does one stop to examine, then be willing to reset, their belief system? Which ones work and don’t work for you today?

My favorite part of the book is when the author requests practical exercises: For instance, the concept of a “talking stick,” used by Native Americans, as an incredible way to teach patience and deepen listening skills. Additionally, I love how she incorporates and mentions other resources and books from other experts—making it a well-researched work of love.

Life presents challenges at every moment, and the author’s “down-home” writing style not only connects you to her but also to oneself if the heart is open to listening to the “whispers” that will be present. Her writing style is compassionate, playful, and probing as she writes how she speaks.

As the pages are turned, one can’t help but feel like The Attitude Doc is someone rooting for you to become a better version of yourself, encouraging the idea to embrace the present moment and trust the process of life because life always wins.

This read is a staple for homes, schools, and clinics. Overall, it is a fantastic read for people who want to delve into a journey of self-actualization, bond with another, better understand the behavior of family members, or find creative ways to overcome personal and challenging issues, and of course, as a foundational guide on how to teach children to be emotionally intelligent. It is truly a phenomenal guide whose ideas are timeless.

Endangered Species Have Feelings Too: Children of All Ages.

“The need to educate future generations of the human impact on the natural world is of monumental global importance–as well as discovering how we learn to cooperate and live together on this precious planet. After reviewing this meaningful and relevant book, Endangered Species Have Feelings Too, I see countless ways this can be utilized in the school environment for compassion training and emotional awareness. I applaud Alexandra Delis-Abrams for teaching children how to imagine standing in the shoes of one of these endangered species, as well as how each person’s contribution can make a life-changing difference. This is Social-Emotional-Learning at its best and can be appreciated by children and adults worldwide!”

— Teri McKenna, LMSW, School Social Worker, Hailey Elementary School, Hailey, Idaho

“As the world becomes smaller every day, due to accelerated developments in transportation, communication technology and restless urbanization, it seems that there will be no space left for wilderness and wildlife to thrive on its own. Endangered Species Have Feelings Too is a prodigious contribution to increase wildlife conservation awareness among children and families, so we understand the fragility of our environment and the importance of its protection. Undoubtedly this book by Dr. Alexandra Delis-Abrams, will aid to transform the world’s children into nature stewards for the future.”

— Eduardo Nájera-Hillman Ph. D., Director of COSTASALVAJE.


“Alexandra Delis-Abrams’ new book titled, Endangered Species Have Feelings Too, is a lovely celebration of endangered species. While teaching children emotional literacy, Dr. Delis-Abrams also encourages them to be empathetic to all living creatures and to see themselves as part of a bigger world. What a wonderful way to empower children, while at the same time teaching them compassion for their natural world. I’d like to see it in the hands of every child.”

— Leda Huta, Executive Director, Endangered Species Coalition


For clever minds, this Endangered Species Have Feelings Too, is ideal. The excitement from my 7 year old friend who dreams of being a veterinarian one day, brought smiles to my face and her Mother’s. Learning about nature and respect for it is part of who she is and certainly with so many species on the endangered list, should be part of every child’s education. Learning on these pages sparks the mind to learn more and coloring is an excellent form of expression that brings it all together. Children in Germany begin to learn English at the 3rd grade level in school; yet another plus about this book. Bravo, Alexandra Delis-Abrams! We know that the future of species rests on our youth, all over the world. Thank you for helping plant and nourish this effort in such a fun way for children.

I bought this book for a student in my 5th grade class who liked to draw but not pay attention in class. I gave it as a gift, as I knew, as an animal lover, she would love reading about the endangered species, but also would love to color the gorgeous pictures. I told her that if she paid attention during instruction, I’d give her 10 minutes to color in this book during class, after doing a shortened assignment, showing me what she had learned in the lesson or activity. She loved this book with all her heart and every day would tell me what she had learned about the endangered animals and how she wanted to start a fundraiser to help elephants. She colored them carefully for the ten minutes each day, and I am thrilled to say, held up her end of the deal for the rest of the year by being present and engaged during instruction in order to earn it , even after she had finished reading and coloring the entire book! It also helped to create a positive connection between us. I highly recommend this book for kids and adults alike. I bought one for myself and my daughters, as well. …and I will buy another one for the next time I have the same problem with a student.
