Targeted to early readers ages six to ten, Ruby Roth's non-fiction book presents a showcase of brilliant illustrations featuring animals both in their natural, fulfilling setting and then in cramped, factory-farm misery, to carry the clear, firm message of veganism's virtue.
Pigs, turkeys, cows, and even quails, dolphins, and turtles take the stage to exhibit with unflinching candour the conditions animals face on factory farms. While the message is sobering and serious, animals are also shown in their natural state rooting around, bonding, nuzzling, cuddling, grooming one another, and generally charming each other with their family instincts and colourful rituals. "That's Why We Don't Eat Animals" makes the case sensitively for both vegetarianism and veganism with gorgeous artwork and a clear, firm stance about the needs of animals and the peril to the greater 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'.
