Steven and his classmates go on a field trip to a local farm sanctuary. While there Steven’s classmates learn that he is a vegan. Steven, along with many of the farm animals, teaches his friends why for him, animals are his friends, not his food.
Each day more children are being introduced to the concept of the vegan lifestyle. The idea of not eating meat, or drinking milk may open a child up to ridicule and harassment.
Steven the Vegan gives these children ideas on how to deal with the situation, and how to explain why animals are friends, not food.
About the Author
A web developer by trade, Dan experience a connection with an injured sea turtle being cared for at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, FL. This sea turtle, Eartha, seems to take a liking to Dan. Her recovery and eventual release back to the ocean was the inspiration for his first book, The Tale of Eartha the Sea Turtle. He went on to write his second book, Steven the Vegan.
“. . .it’s not a pushy book but it leaves open-ended questions for your kids to ask and just to make them think like, hmm, I wouldn’t eat a pigeon or owl, why do I eat chicken and why is that okay, without being overbearing.” – Wings to Weeds. Video review, Steven the Vegan Children’s Book Review. 24 February 2013
