Every person is a unique seed in the world’s garden.
Each seed grows a leader from which greatness can blossom.
Imagine the future of our planet if we nurture each child to sprout greatness.
— Debra J. Slover

U.N.I.Q.U.E. KIDS: Growing My Leadership Garden

Taking the classic model of the Ken Blanchard/Spencer Johnson-style business fable to younger audiences, Debra Slover has created a sweetly illustrated book that empowers children, steers them toward positive patterning, and--if I might use her own garden metaphor--plants the seeds of each child's leadership potential. Kids who've been bullied may respond especially well.

- Shel Horowitz, primary author (with Jay Conrad Levinson) of Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green: Winning Strategies to Improve Your Profits and Your Planet, and parent to two children who consistently demonstrate leadership

Debra Slover teaches children to sprout, grow, and nurture their leader within by developing positive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. For educators, kids, parents, and grandparents, U.N.I.Q.U.E. Kids facilitates positive change in homes, schools, and beyond.

U.N.I.Q.U.E. by Debra J. Slover is a MUST READ book! In my 72 years, I’ve read thousands of books – this one is exceptional and, as its title implies, unique. It will make your life fuller and richer and those around you. It should be in every high school in this country in leadership class. Fun to read and so rewarding.

- Virginia Feck, Mother and Grandmother
