—Jason Mraz, singer and songwriter
“This book gives young people a comprehensive view of animal rights as a lifestyle in an easy-to-digest format. It is my dream that future generations will extend their compassion to all sentient beings as part of their daily practice. This book provides the tools they need to get started.”
—Simone Reyes, activist, co-star of Running Russell Simmons
“Roth’s work brings children a new viewpoint on animals that we desperately need in today’s world. Her message to stop attending dolphinariums is a great way to get children personally involved in making moral choices that are best for the animals. Dolphins belong in the sea, not in captivity.”
—Richard O’Barry, marine mammal specialist, The Cove; campaign director of SaveJapanDolphins.org
“Ruby Roth’s short, sweet, and beautifully illustrated book is a must for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and babysitters, as is her message that ‘The choice to be vegan is especially brave.’ And that goes for grown-ups, too."
—Joseph Connelly, founder and publisher, VegNews magazine

—Brendan Brazier, professional triathlete, best-selling author of Thrive
“Ruby Roth is a magical truth-teller, artist, and conduit to kindness. If I had my druthers, every child in the world would have compulsory homework to read her work, as compassion should be the most perfunctory lesson we learn. My vegan son is so lucky to have Roth’s books to guide him—for every question he has, her books provide an answer.”
—Chloe Jo Davis, founder of Girlie Girl Army
“Being a Wellness Warrior isn’t just for adults. Ruby Roth’s fabulous new book teaches children how veganism leads to personal and planetary health and happiness. Share your respect and compassion for our animal friends by reading Vegan Is Love to a little one you adore.”

Praise for That's Why We
Don't Eat Animals
"This is a powerful and important book. Farm animals have emotions similar to our pets and this is conveyed in Roth’s enchanting illustrations. It will make children - and their parents – think. But it will not lead to nightmares, rather respect and compassion for the creatures whose wellbeing is in our hands."
—Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace
"Like many people, I knew as a child that I didn't want to eat animals. That's Why We Don't Eat Animals would have offered me the guidance and inspiration I needed to understand those instincts. This book is a must-have for anyone who loves animals."
—Alicia Silverstone, actress, animal-rights activist
"A refreshing, sympathetic, and attractive book that children are smart enough to understand, embrace and grow up a little by reading."
—Ingrid Newkirk, founder, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

—Ed Begley, actor, activist
"Stunning artwork, meaningful content, and a message that will inspire—this book is a must-read for every child."
—Rory Freedman, bestselling author of Skinny B*tch
"Roth beautifully illustrates why we all love animals when we get the chance to experience their families and personalities. No one would want to eat their pet. Ruby helps us to understand how we can end suffering on Earth and all become healthy by letting animals be free, just like you and me. That's Why We Don't Eat Animals is a book I recommend to all parents and children."
—David Wolfe, author of The Sunfood Diet Success System, founder of Sun Food
"Where adults are more firmly entrenched in their ways, children need only the slightest insights and guidance, and off they soar into the direction of a more conscious and kind way of living. This book will help to create the much needed healers and leaders of tomorrow."
—Kathy Freston, NY Times bestselling author of Quantum Wellness
"This book captures the imagination with its illustrations that subtly helps children understand the ancient teachings that animals have souls. Animals are our friends and we do not eat our friends. In this understanding it helps us create a more compassionate world."
—Gabriel Cousens, M.D. author of Creating Peace By Being Peace, Conscious Eating, and Spiritual Nutrition
“This is one of the most innovative children’s books of the century. Beautifully crafted and worded, it is the first that speaks to children about this subject. Finally, a book that supports my family’s choices!”
—Justin BUA, artist, author of The Beat of Urban Art
"Being a mother and a grandmother, I welcome Ruby Roth’s beautiful book! This much-needed book will help me to explain my vegetarian views to my precious grandchildren."
—Victoria Boutenko, Award-winning author of Green For Life and 12 Steps To Raw Foods
"We don't eat animals because the animals used for food aren't any different than dogs, cat or any of the animals we love as pets in our homes. We must stop consuming the decaying flesh of animals in order to evolve, and in order to survive."
—Persia White, actress, activist, musician
“Ruby Roth's words are true and her art fantastic. Non-human animals deserve not just an end to our barbaric treatment of them but our respect and empathy as well. To that end Ruby Roth's book should be in every school curriculum, every library and on every bookshelf.”
—Audrey Colman, best-selling illustrator, Walter the Farting Dog
