TUCSON, Ariz. — In honor of National Unicorn Day on April 9th, there's a children's book now available with free activities.

The book is called, "The Nuff," and was written by a mother in Louisiana. Veronica Waldrop began writing in 2011, with the intent to spread a positive message to her daughters. After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, she was able to finish the book in 2017.

KGUN9 spoke with Waldrop's husband who says the title is a play-on-words with the phrase, "you are enough."

The main character of the book is a unicorn. Unlike most that are characterized as perfect, The Nuff's main unicorn has a bandage on one knee and a broken horn. But, it's also for a reason.

"At the end of the day, you're learning one of the most valuable lessons. It's that you're perfect just the way you are," says Will Waldrop.

The book and free activities are available online. If you are interested in downloading, click here.
