Animal People Newspaper said: "COWS ARE VEGETARIANS! joyously affirms the vegetarian choice for young children. It provides them with reassuring facts about nutrition and describes in some detail the environmental benefits of vegetarianism." -- Publisher comments

While I would NOT say the book is preachy (except maybe to those who aren't vegetarian), and it did have very good information for children (and adults, frankly) - I was not as happy with the WAY the information was PACKAGED.
I think children like colorful pictures. There was NO color in this book, and while one publisher's comments described the illustrations as "delightful," I would be more inclined to describe them as drab.
I was also surprised when I picked the book up. The cover had me expecting a good sized book, when it is actually an oversized cover with scant few pages between.
I would still recommend this book, as there are so few with its message. I would just want the buyer to know what they're getting.
Another reviewer recommended Herb the Vegetarian Dragon instead. I would suggest buying BOTH! What this book lacked in eye-candy, Herb had in abundance. But, this book is needed to counter the bland delivery of the message found in Herb.

Format: Paperback
Wow! I really loved this book. I am 11 years and I am vegetarian. Alot of kids at school have made fun of me because I am vegetarian. I asked my mom why they make fun of me because I dont eat meat and she told me it was because there arent many vegetarians out there. A few weeks later she gave me this book. I read it over the weekend and I really loved this book. Thank you Ann Bradley for writing such a neat book.

My daughter and I enjoyed this book, probably for different reasons. The companion cowsareveg website was enjoyable too. The book carries a serious message but isn't preachy, and I did like the artwork.

A friend turned me on to this book a while ago and I loved it. It is aimed at kids, but like most great children books, this one speaks to adults as well. If your raising your kids Vegetarian, this is a must have!

Format: Paperback
You notice how this book does not have the "look inside the book" like most books on Amazon.com? Yet it's been out for years? This is intentional folks! If you look inside this book you will not want to buy it.

I was SO disapointed when I got this book. I loved the title, cover picture and it sounded like a great idea. Yet when I got it and opened it up it was the most boring and worst kids book I think I have ever come across. And most of the stuff in there is more related to the environment, not to vegetarianism.

I'm still smarting over losing my money on this one!

Cows Are Vegetarians! A book for vegetarian kids describes in simple terms that children can understand why it is important to be a vegetarian. By explaining how vegetarianism is good for animals, the environment and people, Ann Bradley shows children that being vegetarian is not only acceptable - it's wonderful! (...)
