When Benji gets home, he asks Mom and Dad if he can have a hamburger. Maybe this will make him like the other children. But instead of eating hamburgers, Dad takes Benji to an animal sanctuary. There, he learns that all animals are important, even if they don't have names.
Mom makes food for Benji's class and the kids eat with mixed reactions. The bullies end up liking the food and ask to come over some time for dinner.
Hello, I am Sarah Rudy, the author of Benji Bean Sprout Doesn't Eat Meat. This book is intended as a teaching book told in the form of a realistic story for children. The bullies in the story are based on some of my own school experiences. While I was not a vegetarian until I turned 18, I was one of those "different" kids who got picked on.
As an adult, I met a lot of grown up bullies who challenged my dietary choices. Of course, being a vegetarian is a lot more popular now then it was in 1995!
The book is intended to be shared by the parents with their children as a way to explain some of the tougher truths about what farm animals go through to end up on our dinner plates. In this way, parents can answer the question "Why don't we eat animals?" with the help of a story and friendly pictures.
Thank you for your purchase and I wish you peace in your world.
My only complaint about the book is actually about the layout. I wish it was a bit bigger/taller. The length is fine, but some of the words get pretty close to the binding.

Really disappointed. The story was not great and definitely not appropriate for my four year old who is just learning that he is a vegetarian and what that means. Read morePublished on September 5, 2008 by Hilbro
