Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Introducing three- to seven-year-olds to the "ABCs" of a compassionate lifestyle, V Is for Vegan is a must-have for vegan and vegetarian parents, teachers, and activists! Acclaimed author and artist Ruby Roth brings her characteristic insight and good humor to a controversial and challenging subject, presenting the basics of animal rights and the vegan diet in an easy-to-understand, teachable format. Through memorable rhymes and charming illustrations, Roth introduces readers to the major vegan food groups (grains, beans, seeds, nuts, vegetables, and fruits) as well as broader concepts such as animal protection and the environment. Sure to bring about laughter and learning, V Is for Vegan will boost the confidence of vegan kids about to enter school and help adults explain their ethical worldview in a way that young children will understand. 

Review:

"Roth, the creator of That's Why We Don't Eat Animals and Vegan Is Love, shares the ABCs of veganism, approaching the topic with enthusiasm and humor. Roth uses a loose, sketchy style of art that goes a long way toward making this outing friendlier and less potentially upsetting than her earlier work. Rather than shame readers, she emphasizes the absurdity of eating animal products ('D is for dairy./ Moo! Milk is for cows./ E is for eggs — / from a chicken's butt?! Wow'). Multiple grains, legumes, and oils are identified on the G, L, and O spreads, and Roth also references the value of adopting animals, avoiding animal tested-products, and following the golden rule. Ages 3 — 7." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Introducing three-to-five-year-olds to the "ABCs" of a vegan lifestyle, V Is for Vegan is a must-have for vegan and vegetarian parents! Acclaimed author and artist Ruby Roth (That's Why We Don't Eat Animals, Vegan Is Love) brings her characteristic insight, compassion, and good humor to a younger audience, presenting the often-controversial and challenging subjects of animal rights and the vegan diet in an easy-to-understand and teachable format. Roth introduces little herbivores to the major vegan food groups (beans, grains, nuts, vegetables, and fruits) as well as the ways we can protect animals and the environment. Colorful, upbeat, and fun, V Is for Vegan helps boost the confidence of vegan children about to enter school and helps parents explain their ethical worldview in a way their young children will grasp.
