Editorial Reviews


Our children love animals and Not A Purse is the perfect book to help us inform our children about how we can enjoy animals and keep them out of harms way. We love that Stephanie Dreyer isn't afraid to speak the truth. A truth we want our children to know. Heather Bell and Jenny Engel, Owners of Spork Foods

Not A Purse is the truth we should never hold back from our children - that animals skin, fur, and feathers are certainly not ours to wear. This very basic concept of non-harming is glossed over by most parents who shuttle their kids off to school wearing shoes made of baby cows and jackets with fur hoods covered in the bodies of what are essentially tiny dogs. Kids hearts know better - this book confirms their instincts towards kindness and justice and helps guide them on a path towards compassion. Non-vegan kids will be surprised to find out what they are wearing, and that's even more of a reason to share it with them! - Chloé Jo Davis, Founder/ Editor of GirlieGirl Army: Your Glamazon Guide to Green & Cruelty-Free Living

Not A Purse" is the only book I've ever seen that actually educates children (and adults) about how animals are used in our everyday lives, many times without us even realizing. Like who knew whales were used in perfume production?? My kids instantly realized that all the animals in the illustrations just wanted to be free and live their own lives! Definitely recommended reading. - Gina Ferraraccio, Founder of Cri de Coeur

Not A Purse teaches the importance of kindness to children and adults. Stephanie beautifully and insightfully inspires children of all ages to make conscious decisions in their lives. I can't wait to share this book with my nieces and nephews! - Leslie Durso, Vegan Chef and Wellness Expert
