My Review: The author has explained in her book that animals are our friends, not food. She goes on to show with the illustrations by Jack Veda showing how chickens like to play games, cows making best friends by walking together, that pigs are super smart by playing video games with a joystick, fish communicating like friends and have memories like humans and many more. She gave fun facts and listed the alternatives like instead of eating hot dog, eat a veggie wrap, instead of bacon, eat tempeh bacon, instead of sushi roll, eat cucumber and avocado roll.

I understand the vegetarian lifestyle that the author wants to convey to the parents and children, but I can not truly agree that animal are not food.

  1. I’ve always been torn about animals as food. It”s said that at one time we all lived peacefully side by side, then man committed sin and everything changed. Also, with so many humans on the planet and less room for animals to survive, culling a herd keeps them healthy and they don’t starve. Where I live, the meat is donated to needy families. There’s good and bad arguments about animals as food. The book sounds like a gem:)

  2. This sounds like a neat book! I would love to share this with my students….so many times children can learn valuable information when they are read aloud to!

  3. I liked your review and I agree. I have friends who are vegetarians and allow their children to choose, and that is how it should be. I also went and watched the authors video for the book.
