    1. This is a beautifully illustrated and wonderfully written book with a powerful message. That message is that we all - adults and children alike - have the power to affect positive change and we can start today.Roth explains in simple language how animals are used for clothing, food, testing, and entertainment and how that use harms animals, and also how it harms humans and the planet. She then explains what we can do instead, and how in that process we make the world a better place for all of us [...]


    2. The author continues the theme she began in That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals, which is an explanation of family lifestyle choices for vegan children. One could definitely see why such books are necessary—just as books for children of single parents or same-sex parents are needed. This book has caused some waves among omnivorous parents who fear that it will “convert” their child (heaven forbid!), although it’s highly unlikely most omnis will purchase Vegan is Love. (And, as the author [...]


    3. So, I did like this. Obviously, it’s didactic. That’s okay but it makes for a small audience: vegans 12 + up, certain 8-11 year old not too sensitive vegans or vegan interested children, kids whose families are going vegan or those who want their families to know about the issues in the book, perhaps kids who have vegan friends, though I have to say from experience that omnivorous parents rarely want their children to get graphic, or much, vegan education. I honor parents’ requests but I w [...]


    4. This is one of the better vegan picture books I've read. Yes, it is still graphic: drawings of wounded animals in cages for testing, polluted/ crowded animal factories and hunters holding their "trophies." Ruby talks about what is unethical and what goes against vegan beliefs but she counters each negative with something positive we can do as compassionate humans and vegans. She talks about how vegan lifestyles can provide a better life for everyone on the planet, human and animal and how it is [...]


    5. I loved the artwork in this book, as well as the overall message. Even as a vegan though, I felt the lessons were a tad bit quixotic and one-sided. I understand that this is a book for kids, but if they can be taught veganism in a simple way, then they can also be taught why some may disagree with it. For instance, the page on organic farming was incredibly idealized. Not once did the author offer a major counterargument (for any of topics) and then explain why vegans disagree with it. We need b [...]


    6. Picture book that advocates choosing a compassionate vegan lifestyle by gently explaining what really happens to the animals people like to eat and see at the circus, etc I loved it and immediately bought it!



    7. So, I was curious as how vegan lifestyle would be presented, so I entered to win the book through giveaways. Horrible, awful, wish I could take it back, mistake. If I want my kids to be able to see a giraffe or a zebra, I'm not going to shell out $6000 to go to Africa, I'm going to spend $8 for a ticket to the zoo. I'm sorry if those animals are sad, sick and angry. It's cheaper than going to Africa. I need to protein, so I do eat meat, cheese and other dairy products. I can't eat peanuts all t [...]



    8. Summary: This is a beautiful story illustrating and educating readers about the joy that is veganism. The book outlines the major contributions to the environment, animals, and health when living a vegan lifestyle. Each aspect of animal exploitation is described in kid-friendly language with colorful cute illustrations of said animals as supportive visuals. The book includes helpful information and resources to best encourage and inform young readers about the endless benefits of veganism. Evalu [...]


    9. In a few pages you have all the information about veganism, it has really beautiful images to explain love and respect towards animals to children. I want to read the other books by the same author.


    10. this is such a great book!!!! such a great way to teach children how and why we need to live kinder and more compassionate lives!!!! it really is a choice, change the horrible cycle of death and torture and teach your kids to be kind and be healthy!!!!


    11. For the most part, I really liked this book. It's a really gentle yet informative way to talk about veganism and kind living to kids (and it would be a good read for some adults, too.) However, I did take issue with the section on zoos. Zoos have problems, but the way the author described them with blanket statements ("they can't forage or drink from streams") was a little dishonest. Decent zoos will create these environments for the animals, not keep them in concrete boxes as the illustration d [...]


    12. This book is not for very young children- they won't really grasp the vocabulary and the message might be confusing or the pictures emotionally charged, but it is an honest and important message for vegan families ( and even non- vegans). Older children will understand the concepts and I think that having storybooks that approach this subject are important, so I fully advocate Ruby Roth pushing the market to include children when it comes to veganism. Honesty is not an 'agenda' and there is no b [...]


    13. This book will reaffirm the values of stoutly vegan families (about the circus, the author writes "The cheerful ringleader does not fool us. We will not see his show."). But less strict families or those looking for introductory information on veganism may be put off by the rhetoric. There are illustrations of bleeding animals after a hunt/slaughter but they are not highly graphic. The back page lists activities for encouraging a vegan lifestyle (volunteer at an animal shelter, avoid shows featu [...]


    14. Simple straightforward approach to explaining why vegans avoid the exploitation of animals through food clothing and entertainment. Illustrations are colorful and while recognizable as the animal in topic they are not so visually realistic as to induce a heightened emotional response. There is some controversy about this book being inappropriate for children but it is much more damaging to children to have them grow up blind to the truth and ignorant of the abuse that goes on.


    15. VEGAN IS LOVE by Ruby Roth This book is perfect for youngsters. First I would like to say that the illustrations are beautiful, excellent. Having tried to be a vegan, I understand the many pitfalls we walk into. I will keep trying as I did feel much better while I was practicing being a vegan. I gained a different view of a zoo, thanks to this book. I have changed my view of many things. Thank you for the opportunity to read your book.


    16. The saying "Don't judge a book by it's cover" applies here. I expected this to be a nice book to read to my 2.5 year old. We are vegan, I agree with the vegan lifestyle and educating our children on it, but this book is too emotionally charged, too graphic and disturbing, I wouldn't want my child to see it.


    17. Love this. Even moved me to tears the first time I read it. To any parents who object to the content of this book being too much for children I have this to say: There is *Nothing* in this book that isn't in a grocery store.



    18. This is a fantastic book on why one is Vegan. Though this may not be read aloud material, it has great information.





    19. great book. Definitely not meant for young children. I would say an 8 year old would start to grasp all the words. Otherwise really wonderfully done!


    20. A really nice book for kiddies to learn about veganism! Even though I'm not a vegan (yet), I think every little kid should read this book.
