1.0 out of 5 stars Horrifying.. June 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this in the children's section of kindle books. This is not a children's book! This book is a soapbox for the author. And the poems are not "inspirational" at all. The author trying to label this a children's book is the most horrifying part of all. I understand her desire to teach children to find other supplements to replace what is found in meat, but there is nothing on God's green earth that would compel me to read this book to a child. I do have a question though, near the end of the book, she writes about a mouse that got inside her house. She does not say how she got it out of her house, why not?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful June 16, 2013

The first poem made me tear up and the third one just made me lose it. Great poetry. Please read and please go vegan.

To the author- I'm going to share some of these, with your name, on Facebook and tumblr. Thanks for sharing your lovely poetry. :)

I'd like to add though, Peta is highly problematic. They use sexism and fat-shaming, among other things, to promote going veg and that's not right. There are plenty of other resources about going veg, just do some research. Watch Earthlings, it's amazing and free to watch online at Earthlings.com.

Maybe not the best book for small children evokes much emotion. Maybe would be better for middle school or high school

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible -- and hilarious August 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I should have known by the title. The poems start out horrible with a PETA bent (turns out it is PETA) and stays that way. The poetry is lousy, plus there are several outright false statements in the poetry. But the reason it gets only one star is simply Bad Poetry Should Not Be Distributed (Amendment One notwithstanding). Sadly, instead of standing up for animal welfare or animal rights, the bad poetry makes you want to eat ribs and chicken (and try not to spit it on the table as you laugh out loud).
There is one poem that could have been really good, except the scribbler (I will not say poetess) inserted a verse that screwed it up. Since it is not horrible, I want to discuss it.
The poem is from the point of view of a hen, wondering if you ever think about what that breakfast egg means. One verse screws it up, by saying something like "I am so unhappy that I never see the sun and grass that wish I could die." The verse is not only out of sync with the rest of the poem (which would otherwise make anybody think about their eggs), but since you can't know what the hen is thinking (especially since factory hens probably don't wish for something about which they know nothing), it makes the poem lose credibility.
If the poems were written like the hen and egg poem (minus the anthropomorphic nonsense, and without the political PETA crap), I think the message would have been much more effective and reached an audience outside the choir.
Forewarned is forearmed: I won't buy her stuff again.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved... May 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the poem prosaically, then how I loved it slowly dawned as I finished understanding with my soul. This was shared on a Christian vegetarian list:

I've often heard it said by folk
Who relish eating meat
The animals were put on earth
For human beings to eat.
Well if God made them just for us,
Explain it, if you can,
Why they arrived one hundred million
Years ahead of man.

More About the Author

Jenny Moxham has been a vegetarian since 1977 and a vegan since 1979. She became converted' to vegetarianism after being saddened to see a truck load of cattle bound for slaughter and shortly afterwards, discovering that meat wasn't required for a healthy diet.

She tries to alleviate animal suffering whenever and wherever she can and writes lots of letters to the newspapers on issues concerning animal exploitation/cruelty and vegetarianism. She has put up library displays, taken humane education kits to local schools, attended demonstrations, designed animal-friendly Christmas cards, organized a campaign to have councils stop celebrating with fireworks and worked on on getting compassion for animals into the schools and churches in her area.

Her first poem was written after walking down the street one Spring day and rejoicing in the beauty all around her... and then realizing that millions of incarcerated factory- farmed animals will never know a Spring. She went home and wrote, They Will Never Know A Spring.

After that, various situations/events inspired her to write further poems.

Her song, A VOICE FOR THE ANIMALS won the Animal Liberation National Animal Rights Song competition in 2000 and her poems have been published in various magazines and newspapers.
