"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.

One of the best way to explain our kids, where what many call food comes from and why extend compassion to all beings!

Good book to share with those that may not initially understand why some of us choose to eat a plant-based diet.

Every day, we have the freedom to change our lives. In fact, when we treat animals respectfully, we practice world peace. That's why we don't eat animals.
