Unique Grandparents Day Gift For Grandparents and Grandchildren Announced By Leadership Garden Legacy

A chapter preview of U.N.I.Q.U.E. Kids, Growing My Leadership Garden will be provided for Grandparents Day to any grandparent who requests the gift

[September 4, 2009 Albany OR] Debra Slover, Founder of Leadership Garden® Legacy announced today that the organization will provide a chapter of U.N.I.Q.U.E. KIDS: Growing My Leadership Garden as a gift to grandparents on Grandparents Day.

“The ability to lead,” stated Ms. Slover, “is the most important gift any grandparent could give to a grandchild. The ability to lead is not developed at a conference table or in a boardroom. The ability to lead is formed at the dinner table. Children and grandchildren look to grandparents for wisdom, for guidance, and for leadership. The family’s future begins with the grandparents. Family values undergird everything we do as individuals. Those values must be passed on by grandparents to children and grandchildren. U.N.I.Q.U.E. KIDS: Growing My Leadership Garden provides a framework that allows grandparents to begin to develop a lasting leadership legacy.”

“Anyone can leave a legacy of money or property or anything else they might wish to leave,” Slover said, “but what we suggest is to develop a method to pass on the gift of personal leadership to those who come behind us. This gift, costing nothing at all, is of paramount importance to those we leave behind. It is a gift that will not rust or decay. It will not be spent all at once or frivolously squandered away. The gift of personal leadership, given by grandparents to grandchildren, is a gift that will last forever in future generations. Our Grandparent’s Day gift is the first step towards encouraging grandparents to pass their leadership wisdom along to their children and grandchildren. What could hold more value that that?”

Grandparents can download the starter kit using the information below. The children’s book is a full-color adaptation of the adult book, U.N.I.Q.U.E.: Growing the Leader Within, and is told in a straight fable format. It is intended as a read aloud book with a grandparent, parent, or teacher - or chapter book for students, depending upon the setting, skill level,and interest of the child.

The Leadership Garden Legacy program is designed to be a catalyst in helping to create a network of people that uses a "natural leadership development" framework to make the world a better place to live, work, and play.

The Grandparents Day gift is available at no cost by visiting The gift will also be made available by visiting the new marketplace at
