Ruby Roth, author of “That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals: A Book About Vegans, Vegetarians, and All Living Things,” a children’s book, answered a couple questions recently.
Here are some bits of the interview:
“Children show incredible interest and insight. They ask questions and relate the information to their own lives-their pets, their gardens, their vegetarian relative. [...] They enjoy being let in on what seems to have been a ‘secret’ kept from them. They feel empowered by the truth. When they find they can help save animals and the planet simply through their choices, action is not a question, but a conclusion.”
“I see my book as anti-propaganda. Children can’t make choices if they don’t know there are any.”
I agree. Children deserve to know the truth.
