The Nuff, Waldrop’s heartwarming story written to inspire her daughters after she was gone and empower girls everywhere to be the bold and confident individuals they were born to be.
About The Nuff by Veronica Waldrop
This children’s book about courage and self-discovery follows the adventures of the Nuff, a colorfully-illustrated unicorn with a broken horn that young readers will love. The Nuff reads books and rides bikes, dresses up and dances with a flower crown, and plays basketball and scuba dives. No matter what she does, the story reminds her that “when the world says you can’t and you should just give up….know you are brave and beautiful. You will always be a NUFF!”
“Though we miss her every day, Veronica’s courage and strength is living in us. The Nuff is a part of our healing and the beginning of a mission to inspire our daughters, and girls everywhere, that you are enough,” said Will Waldrop, Veronica’s husband.
During the final weeks of her life, Veronica wore a unicorn costume around the house to raise her daughters’ spirits. The Nuff defines the inextinguishable energy of Veronica’s life and the legacy she wants to pass on to every single Nuff – “a strong and beautiful girl with a powerful heart and brain.”
Encouraging authenticity, resilience, and self-assurance, The Nuff shares a message with girls that they are not defined by their achievements or challenges – they are already, and always, enough.
“Veronica may have written this poem for our little girls but the reality is that this is a story that is resonating with women and girls of all ages. Our hope is that through this message, adults and children alike will feel confident to navigate their lives and face any challenges that may arise. The Nuff is not just a kid’s book for girls,” said Will Waldrop. “So many times I’ve had to go back to the book to remind myself as a dad, as a widower, that she’s talking to me.”
A portion of the proceeds from each book will go towards the donation of The Nuff copies to early education programs and non-profit organizations already focussed on the advancement of young girls.
