NOTES FROM THE PUBLISHER

V Is for Vegan Overview

Introducing three- to seven-year-olds to the “ABCs” of a compassionate lifestyle, V Is for Vegan is for vegan and vegetarian parents, teachers, and activists!

Author and artist Ruby Roth brings her characteristic insight and good humor to a controversial and challenging subject, presenting the basics of animal rights and the vegan diet in an easy-to-understand, teachable format. Through memorable rhymes and charming illustrations, Roth introduces readers to the major vegan food groups (grains, beans, seeds, nuts, vegetables, and fruits) as well as broader concepts such as animal protection and the environment.

Sure to bring about laughter and learning, V Is for Vegan will boost the confidence of vegan kids about to enter school and help adults explain their ethical worldview in a way that young children will understand.

 

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.

 

Editorial Reviews

“Ruby Roth has done it again. Never has being vegan been more beautifully illustrated than in V Is for Vegan. Roth’s clarity, directness, and creative intelligence come through with every letter. This is a must-have for every vegan, especially those of us who are raising vegan children to know the simple and elegant power of our choices.” – Mayim Bialik, PhD, Emmy-nominated actress, neuroscientist, author, and mom
