VIV_cover

In V is for Vegan, Ruby Roth introduces three-to-five-year-olds to the "ABCs" of a vegan lifestyle. A must-have for vegan and vegetarian parents, Roth 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-tounderstand and teachable format.

Pre-order the Book.

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.

Written by Leigh-Chantelle   
Created Wednesday, 03 July 2013

from the Examiner who writes about animal advocacy wrote a lovely article on me recently.

LC__Rosa

Here's how it starts:

While her distinctive Australian accent dictates her place of birth and residence, she is a woman of the earth, a gatherer of positive people, a leader of the world community. She is Leigh-Chantelle.
