who have vegan friends, though I have to say from experience that omnivorous parents rarely want their children to get graphic, or much, vegan education I honor parents requests but I won t lie to kids, so in those cases I don t offer information about my choices and, if asked, answer honestly but rather vaguely I do think this might be a good book for vegan families to own I appreciated that the author illustrator covered the many ways human use animals and does briefly describe the negatives of each of those ways.I didn t like the term man made I would have preferred using the words human made I wish the word veganic and not organic can be used, but acknowledge the correct choice was made given the near impossibility of currently finding commercial veganically grown food And, I thought polar bears usually have 2 cubs at once, not 4 On the page s What Else Can We Do section in the back of the book, I would have liked each suggestion to be accompanied by an illustration I think these items would appealto kids if they each had a picture The illustrations are wonderful, some exceptionally good They re whimsical and cute But I kept wondering ifrealistic looking animals also painted as cute would have beeneffective here After all, the book s aim is to support kids who have compassion for real animals and those who might start caring Because the text portions here are small and very straightforward rather than going out of their way to entertain, the pictures are a huge part of the book They re needed to help deliver the message I ll contradict myself here though and say that maybe the art style is good because being too, too accurate in the animals depictions might havesensitive children feeling evensad.I m conflicted I think this is a good book for vegan or evolving toward vegan families, and especially for kids ages maybe 10 or 12 13 in such families It could be a support and validation However, given the way the information is presented, I m not sure it would be a good book to share with non vegan kids families Too bad Support is essential but there is already a lot of preaching to the choir.I m really unsure as how to rate this I guess I ll give it 4 stars because I see an eager audience for it, rounded up from 3 stars I wanted to like it even better than I did I m still eager to read this author illustrator s newest book V is for Vegan The ABCs of Being Kind I hope my library gets it, and I hope it s one I can share with some non vegans.Yeah, I rambled, and the reason is my mixed feelings The author continues the theme she began in That s Why We Don t Eat Animals, which is an explanation of family lifestyle choices for vegan children One could definitely see why such books are necessary just as books for children of single parents or same sex parents are needed This book has caused some waves among omnivorous parents who fear that it will convert their child heaven forbid , although it s highly unlikely most omnis will purchase Vegan is Love And, as the author already poi The author continues the theme she began in That s Why We Don t Eat Animals, which is an explanation of family lifestyle choices for vegan children One could definitely see why such books are necessary just as books for children of single parents or same sex parents are needed This book has caused some waves among omnivorous parents who fear that it will convert their child heaven forbid , although it s highly unlikely most omnis will purchase Vegan is Love And, as the author already pointed out, McDonald s markets relentlessly to kids, and only a small sector of the mainstream is outraged about that Despite the fact that I strongly support veganism and vegetarianism, as well as raising children on plant based diet, a few things about this book made me uncomfortable I ll get to that in a bit The book starts out on a high note, with a great passage How wonderful it is that at this very moment, every person, big and small, has the power to create a better world We don t have to wait to grow older, for laws to change, or for presidents to be elected We can begin right now.Good stuff, and it reminds me of the self empowerment among youth that we all encourage with humane education You do have the power to make a world a better place, and you can make choices to improve the lot of others Despite its picture book format, Vegan is Love is best suited for older children, because aspects of it are likely to upset very young or highly sensitive children The illustrations are incredible, and I loved looking at the artist s unusual, near geometric animals However, several illustrations show animals who are clearly injured or in distress I was especially sensitive to animals as a youngster, budding vegetarian that I was, and I know these pictures would have deeply upset me So if your kid is still unable to handle the sad scary bits in Disney cartoons, s he will probably have some problems handling Vegan is Love. For these kids, something such as Victor the Vegetarian might be a better choice While the illustrations are stunning, and the author occasionally shines with sentences such as this one, on hunting What we need today are people with the courage to protect animals, not hurt them.it bothers me that a few of the passages are overly broad or incorrect, something vegan author Erik Marcus has repeatedly condemned Other passages seem to exude a tone that I dislike, a touch of self righteousness here and there, the feeling that being vegan isabout being in some sort of exclusive club The author should take a lesson from Vegan Outreach and make her textwelcoming and inclusive, and less haughty For example, the author condemns all zoos and depicts a zoo as a place in which families of giraffes live in a Victorian style concrete cell with no vegetation While roadside zoos often indeed look and operate in this fashion, these facilities are to AZA zoos what pet hoarders are to accredited sanctuaries Yes, I am one of the animal advocates who doesn t oppose zoos in principle, and I m not the only one In a world where billions of farmed animals can t even turn around, AZA accredited zoos are not the enemy.Other problematic generalizations crop up as well, such as the author s take on organic farming Organic farmers treat their fields like family and care for them naturally without chemicals or causing suffering.Not really While organic farmers may eschew chemicals, as Animal People News notes, S o called vermin species may in fact be evenruthlessly persecuted by organic farmers than bytypical agribusinesses because the profit margin may be smaller on the typically smaller organic farms The book ends on another empowering high note In the end, only you can choose how to eat and live It takes courage to ask, What kind of person do I want to be and decide the answer yourself.Despite some problems, Vegan is Love is, overall, a nice book, and it is encouraging to see vegan values entering the mainstream This is a beautifully illustrated and wonderfully written book with a powerful message That message is that we all adults and children alike have the power to affect positive change and we can start today.Roth explains in simple language how animals are used for clothing, food, testing, and entertainment and how that use harms animals, and also how it harms humans and the planet She then explains what we can do instead, and how in that process we make the world a better place for all of us This is a beautifully illustrated and

illustrations to be too graphic for small children.Ms Roth s book empowers even the youngest of us, and helps us all make the world a kinder,compassionate place This is one of the better vegan picture books I ve read Yes, it is still graphic drawings of wounded animals in cages for testing, polluted crowded animal factories and hunters holding their trophies Ruby talks about what is unethical and

book would be suitable for maybe 8 or 9 year olds and up don t think anything younger than a mature 8 year old would be wise Ruby also gives a page of What Else Can We Do which provide great ideas that are definitely things kids can do on their own or with an encouraging adult I will be adding this book to my home library I loved the artwork in this book, as well as the overall message Even as a vegan though, I felt the lessons were a tad bit quixotic and one sided I understand that this is a book for kids, but if they can be taught veganism in a simple way, then they can also be taught why
