Should we be learning compassion for animals at the same time as our ABCs? Absolutely, says author/illustrator Ruby Roth. Her new book, V is for Vegan, gives children ages 3 and up a funny, joyful introduction to veganism in 26 sentences.
Roth shares with us the surprisingly insightful question she hears most often from children — as well as what she says when other people’s kids get curious about her veganism! She will also share tips for getting kids interested in their food and in compassionate living — from pushing the buttons on the Vitamix, to treasure-hunting for the leaping bunny logo at the grocery store. Roth believes that if you teach children early to love deeply, think critically, and act responsibly, those lessons will last a lifetime.
