About the Author
Ruby Roth is an artist, designer, activist, and author and illustrator of vegan and vegetarian books for children.
Vegan since 2003, Roth was teaching art at an elementary school when her students’ fascination with veganism inspired her to write That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals in 2009—the first book of its kind in children’s literature. Vegan Is Love and V Is for Vegan followed. Today, Roth’s books have been translated into multiple languages including German, Italian, Korean, French, Polish, and Slovenian.
Roth has received international attention for her sensitive, yet frank advocacy of a vegan diet and lifestyle. Complementing her degrees in art and American Studies, she has researched animal agriculture, health, nutrition, and the benefits of a plant-based diet for over a decade.
“Move over, Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss! Make some room on the bookshelf for a new, welcome series of children’s books that teaches “the ABCs of being kind”—both to animals and to our planet. From Ruby Roth, the author-illustrator of the much-loved That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals and Vegan Is Love, comes the just-released V Is for Vegan, an uplifting and educational picture book that introduces young readers to animal rights, environmental issues, and the virtues of a plant-based diet.” – Vegetarian Times
