That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals 


That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals by Ruby Roth takes a gentle and compassionate look at the plight of animals on factory farms. By using gorgeous artwork and lively text she introduces vegetarianism and veganism to early readers.

Ruby Roth takes the boldest step yet in children’s literature with That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals.  This heartfelt and informative book offers a key resource to parents to talk about a timely, increasingly important subject with their children.

Aimed at readers aged six to ten,  the book features an endearing animal cast of pigs, turkeys, cows, quail, turtles, and dolphins. These creatures are shown illustrated blissfully in their natural state. Rooting around, bonding, nuzzling, cuddling and grooming one another. The opposite is also shown, the terrible conditions of the factory farm.

Ruby Roth also describes the negative effects that eating meat has on the environment. A separate section entitled “What Else Can We Do?” suggests ways children can learn more about the vegetarian and vegan lifestyles. Such as:“Celebrate Thanksgiving with a vegan feast” or “Buy clothes, shoes, belts, and bags that are not made from leather or other animal skins or fur.”

This compassionate, informative book offers both an entertaining read and a resource to inspire parents and children to talk about a timely, increasingly important subject.
