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.

  • Wonderful and Important Lesson for Children

    LOVE the book - the message, the gentle way of relating the animal industry and the sadness of the animals involved. It's a wonderful book for children and is benign enough that friends of mine who won't pick up other animal-issue books will look at this one, if for nothing else than the illustrations which are fabulous. It's a message you just cannot argue with. I'd strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to help their child grow to be a conscious consumer/eater.

  • Such a Wonderful Book!

    I have wanted to order this book since it came out in May, and then found it on Overstock.com for such a reasonable price that I couldn't pass it up! Both my 10 year old and my 22 month old love the book. The story is just great with such a wonderful message to children and adults. The illustration is beautiful. I would recommend this book for anyone! The shipping was very timely (received after only a week and a half!)
