Excellent book for children of all ages!!,
This review is from: That's Why We Don't Eat Animals: A Book About Vegans, Vegetarians, and All Living Things (Hardcover)
My husband and I have read this very important book many times to our 7-and 3-year-old boys since it arrived 2 weeks ago. Both boys LOVE the story and the illustrations. The ideas are easy for them to comprehend and appreciate, and they have increased both their vocabulary and their understanding of their own veganism. That's Why We Don't Eat Animals has led to many meaningful conversations with our boys (both vegan since conception) about the impact of personal choice on the earth/animals. While my 7-year-old often reads the book on his own, my 3 year old also loves the book and is now able to talk more freely about his "gentle/peaceful choices" to be kind to animals. My boys make thoughtful, informed decisions every day about their diets, their lifestyles, their behavior, and their impact on the world. However, That's Why We Don't Eat Animals gives the ethics of veganism a voice that can be understood and appreciated by ALL children. Having read this book aloud to a group of 20+ preschoolers, it is clear that it is accessible to children of ANY age or level of independent thinking. What a huge bonus that this message is packaged in such fantastic illustrations that create empathy and adoration for animals everywhere.

I've not read this book. Seems like a book that should be required reading for young students and recommended for anyone of any age. Bravo to author! People could recommend to local library to include this book in the catalogue.
