Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Emily Griffin
Stop and think. That is what vegans do before they eat. Being vegan can mean different things: some people abstain from eating meat, fish, dairy, and eggs. Others go further by avoiding items like gelatin and honey. This title, and the others in the series, offers an extremely approachable but thorough guide to eating healthy food. Five chapters explain why eating vegan is good for your body, the environment, and the economy. Creatively designed side bars, photograph captions, and bubbles add extra information—such as quick facts about food substitutions, the need for protein (easier than you think!), clothing materials vegans may choose to avoid, and much more. A strength of the book is how, in defining an aspect of veganism, it encourages questioning labels and practices. The overall message is a positive one, no matter what "diet" you follow, stop and think before you eat: consider what you are eating and why. Where did it come from? How does it impact the earth, its people, and its animals? Highly recommended. Includes a table of contents, metric conversions, glossary, index, and further resources. Personal stories of tweens and teens are interspersed. Reviewer: Emily Griffin
