“So after reading this do you feel like you may think differently about eating meat?” I ask.
Danielle, age 11, shakes her head with certainty. “Especially turkeys. Did you know their snoods change color with their moods?”
“And pigs!” yells 8-year old Luke, “It says they are the smartest and cleanest animals on Earth. But they are always in mud so I don’t know why it says they are clean…”
That is why I love Ruby Roth’s, “That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals.” Is has take-away lessons that even Batman can remember! (“Did you know ducks fly for months every year? Just like Superman?”)
This colorful book relays the point that animals are here to be valued and enjoyed for who they are without being graphically scary. For each animal Roth says something that is special about them (Cows show-off in front of their friends!) and what they enjoy like flying, cuddling or grazing. She then says how different life is for an animal raised as food–how they don’t get to live the life Mother Nature intended for them.
This a lovely book to add your compassionate library!
