3 Awesomesauce Vegan Books for Kids

When it comes to veganism, it can sometimes be hard to educate a young child on the subject without scaring them to death. You pretty much end up having to censor a lot of the cruelty that takes place in the livestock and dairy industries, and it can prevent you from getting your idea across, clearly.

This is where vegan books come to your rescue! With the addition of colorful images and easy-to-understand language, your kid can read on their very own, or better yet, you can read the book aloud to them. Best of all, it will allow your child to educate their friends (and maybe even some adults) as well, at their level.

1. That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals by Ruby Roth

This book manages to put across the message of veganism in a compassionate way for children. It not only encompasses veganism, but also the impact that consuming meat has on the environment. Roth contrasts the lives of animal species in the wild to their lives in captivity and in factory farms. Jane Goodall, Ingrid Newkirk (founder of PETA), actress Alicia Silvertsone and Ed Begley among others, all gave shining reviews to this book. For further reading, check out Roth’s other works, Vegan Is Love and V is for Vegan.

2. We’re Vegan! by Anna Bean

We’re Vegan is beautifully illustrated and it also makes use of rhyming verses as it follows two vegan kids named Petra and John. The book is easy to understand and it addresses veganism as a social justice movement. The book has also been translated into a number of languages!

3. Steven the Vegan by Dan Bodenstein

This book follows Steven, a kid who goes on a field trip to a farm sanctuary along with his classmates. There, he explains why he is a vegan, along with some help from the rescued farm animals at the sanctuary. In addition, Steven also explains to his friends how they can carefully deal with any taunting they may face from other non-vegans.

    This Is very attractive! today students are using smart gadgets which help them in communication which makes many chances to enhance their studies as we know most of the students can't get assistance in their studies but now it has changed due to an increase in the advancement and now the students can easily get help from the online website which help them to asses their career and removing their career problems so its a good opportunity and we should get help from it.
