Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Two serviceable introductory overviews for young adolescents considering a dietary switch. Both titles examine the reasons for becoming vegetarian/vegan, including health concerns and ethical/religious positions, and proceed to dispel common myths attached to these lifestyles. The authors identify celebrities who are vegetarians and vegans and address issues that young people may face when dealing with social situations, family relationships, and special occasions. The books are attractive, with black-and-white and full-color photos throughout. A handful of recipes are appended to each volume. Weiss's book is the more strident of the two, with an "expos " look at modern farming practices. Judy Krizmanic's A Teen's Guide to Going Vegetarian (Puffin, 1994) and Jan Parr's The Young Vegetarian's Companion (Watts, 1996) cover the same territory in greater depth, more closely approaching the promised "everything you need to know."-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

    Far from everything you need to know about being a vegan

    While I wouldn't expect one slim book to contain everything you need to know about veganism anyway, the author certainly could have done a much better job with the amount of space that she had. Begin with the front cover - an unenthusiastic girl sits down to a boring-looking meal of unseasoned broccoli and red bell peppers. If the reader's aren't turned off toward veganism by that, they will be by the time they get into the book's content. The author uses the words 'vegan' and 'vegetarian' interchangeably, a mistake that many vegans work to eradicate. The book fails to provide any information about the history or philosophy of veganism, and will leave readers confused about the movement's goals and purpose. When you turn to the back cover, you will see that the author is a vegetarian and not a vegan, and may not have a strong understanding of all aspects of veganism. I understand that this is a youth title, but I believe that kids are capable of understanding far more complex information than this book offers them.
