This is my daughter’s favorite book right now! She loves looking at the different animals in it and I love the story with the rhythms!

Nice story to teach kids that it’s possible to not eat meat and still be strong, run fast, be clever, etc. It can help kids reply to questions asked by the non-vegan friends in a nice way, identifying themselves with the lion in that story.

I have to admit that I love this book because I am both a breastfeeding and vegan mom!

I think that it’s super easy to compare other to other mammals to understand that cow milk is for the calves and not for us.

This book is amazing for babies and very young vegan kids. They will love looking at each animal nursing their mothers and at the end of the book, seeing a human mom nursing her baby, like they do.

I love this book because it shows children that being different is OK! This is an issue that a lot of vegan kids and thus us parents face: the difficulties for our kids as vegan in social situations with their friends.

It helps vegan kids to know how to fit into our omnivore society.

A perfect tale to teach kids to be themselves without trying to please everyone and to accept others’ differences.

Not a nugget

This book is amazing in the sense that it links the food to the animal it comes from. Many non vegan kids and adults tends to make the link between the two.
