We all have worth. Our sense of self-esteem begins at birth and is nurtured by people and the world we live in. The line of an old song, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love” tells it all.

Inspired by the birth of a friend’s daughter, renowned thought leader, author and speaker, Dr Dain Heer, created the book as a reminder of the unlimited potential we each carry into the world at birth.
The story is co-authored with Katarina Wallentin and illustrated by Nathalie Beauvois.
“From the moment you are born, people tell you how to fit into this reality. They teach you how to judge. They teach you how to separate from others and make yourself wrong, how to try to win, how not to lose, and how to get things right,” Heer explains. “By the time we start kindergarten, we are already forming a self-esteem based on these external judgements. We are already forgetting who it is we truly know ourselves to be.”
Easy to read and exquisitely illustrated, The Baby Unicorn Manifesto is about the magic and possibilities on our beautiful planet, where we are only limited by our imagination. A must-read for any new or expecting mums and a perfect addition to any child’s bookshelf.
