Not wanting to hurt animals, Victor, a young boy, becomes a vegetarian. To ensure that he is eating a healthy diet, Victor goes to the library to get some books about what types of food he should eat. On his way home Victor stops to read the books and he begins to daydream.
In his dream Victor is invited to a vegetarian picnic by a deer. The deer teaches Victor the difference between carnivores and vegetarians, including the difference in their teeth, jaws, claws and fingernails. At the picnic Victor shares the food of animals who do not eat meat. Rabbits share their vegetables, a giraffe offers some of her green leaves, cows share their soybeans, horses give Victor oats, a gorilla provides bananas, chipmunks offer nuts, an elephant shares peanuts, and a few mice hand Victor some of their seeds.
When Victor wakes up he goes home and tells his parents about his dream and that he has learned what he needs to eat.
Victor's Picnic With the Vegetarian Animals not only points out some of the differences between animals who eat meat and animals who consume plants, but also the types of food that vegetarians consume including: vegetables, beans, grains, fruits, nuts and seeds. Written by Radha Vignola, a nutrition consultant, nutrition educator, diet counselor and vegetarian, this book
will appeal to children who like animals and parents who have vegetarian children. –Reviewed by Glenn Perrett (...)

I got this book for my 2 year old son, and he finds it very appealing. Who wouldn't want to go on a picnic with rabbits, deer, elephants, and gorillas! The pictures of animals hold his interest, and the pictures of wholesome vegan foods have inspired him to broaden his diet! Kudos to Radha Vignola and Michelle Ary for making the ethics and nutrition of veganism so clear and appealing to little ones.

Format: Paperback
This is a story of a compasisonate boy who spends mealtime with the animals in the woods, and learns about what they eat. It is totally non-violent. My elementary school students love it, expecially if its companion tape recording is played along with it. It is a fun teaching tool for a few catagory concepts about animals and food,

3 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Samurai Librarian on May 7, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a weak insipid uninspired story with art that is flat, amaturish, and unappealing.

As a children's librarian there is nothing that rankles me so much as a book for children that condescends to them. This MIGHT have an appeal for a three year old, after that forget it.

I am also a vegetarian and I find the depiction of food incredibly boring and the story is weak, very very weak.
