"That s Why We Don t Eat Animals "uses colorful artwork and lively text to introduce vegetarianism and veganism to early readers (ages six to ten). Written and illustrated by Ruby Roth, the book features an endearing animal cast of pigs, turkeys, cows, quail, turtles, and dolphins. These creatures are shown in both their natural state rooting around, bonding, nuzzling, cuddling, grooming one another, and charming each other with their family instincts and rituals and in the terrible conditions of the factory farm. The book also describes the negative effects eating meat has on the environment. A separate section entitled What Else Can We Do? suggests ways children can learn more about the vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, such as: Celebrate Thanksgiving with a vegan feast or Buy clothes, shoes, belts, and bags that are not made from leather or other animal skins or fur. This compassionate, informative book offers both an entertaining read and a resource to inspire parents and children to talk about a timely, increasingly important subject.

Review quote

"This is a powerful and important book. Farm animals have emotions similar to our pets and this is conveyed in Roth's enchanting illustrations. It will make children--and their parents--think. But it will not lead to nightmares, rather respect and compassion for the creatures whose wellbeing is in our hands." --Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace "A refreshing, sympathetic, and attractive book that children are smart enough to understand, embrace and grow up a little by reading." --Ingrid Newkirk, founder, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) "Ruby Roth has done us all a great service. If your children are vegetarians, or have friends who are, or are simply interested in why people might be vegetarians, this is the book for them!" --John Robbins, bestselling author of "The Food Revolution, Diet For A New America" "Where adults are more firmly entrenched in their ways, children need only the slightest insights and guidance, and off they soar into the direction of a more conscious and kind way of living. This book will help to create the much needed healers and leaders of tomorrow. " --Kathy Freston, NY Times bestselling author of "Quantum Wellness" "Like many people, I knew as a child that I didn't want to eat animals. That's Why We Don't Eat Animals would have offered me the guidance and inspiration I needed to understand those instincts. This book is a must-have for anyone who loves animals." --Alicia Silverstone, actress, animal-rights activist "In a time when we are all working to go green, I am thrilled that "That's Why We Don't Eat Animals" makes the connection between food and the environment, inspiring children to be aware and involved.
