Libby Finds Vegan Sanctuary

Author: Julia Feliz Brueck · Subject: Children’s


The first board book for little vegan readers!

Libby Finds Vegan Sanctuary is the story of how a turkey inspires compassion and ultimately, finds safety. Through colorful pages and a simple story fit for little hands, the board book helps young children understand the meaning of sanctuary and lightly explores the idea of choosing to prevent harm of other living beings.

The story is based on a real-life rescued turkey, Libby, who lives in a farm animal sanctuary in Florida.

“What a wonderful book! It’s a terrific tale that will enthrall children as they cheer on Libby’s rescue, and the art is colorful and fun. It tells a serious story (which is based on the incredible true story of Libby’s rescue), but it does it in such a way that makes it a joy to read…” – Bird, Amazon

“Love it! Cute, happy, easy to read board book. Great story and pictures!” – GigglingPixie, Amazon

“I wish this book had been available when my own son was small. We need this book and many others like it that counters the prevalent cultural confusion present in most children’s’ books. In the pages of most children’s’ books, kids encounter animals who teach them the alphabet, help them fall asleep at night, and take them on fun adventures while those same young book lovers are wearing leather shoes or eating chicken nuggets. This book is different. Libby is a friend, and the children learn that her safety and happiness are their responsibility – a responsibility they gladly take on. I love a happy ending, and this one is especially gratifying because it means Libby is home and the children who hear this book likely have parents who really see who Libby and all animals truly are.” – Linda Nelson, Amazon
