Looking for the perfect gift for the veg kid in your life? Look no further, we’ve got you covered!

That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals by Ruby Roth


“That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals uses colorful artwork and lively text to introduce vegetarianism and veganism to early readers (ages six to ten). Written and illustrated by Ruby Roth, the book features an endearing animal cast of pigs, turkeys, cows, quail, turtles, and dolphins. These creatures are shown in both their natural state—rooting around, bonding, nuzzling, cuddling, grooming one another, and charming each other with their family instincts and rituals—and in the terrible conditions of the factory farm.”

Fur and Feathers Board Game


“Fur & Feathers is a board game that teaches children about the importance of being kind to animals (and how our daily choices affect them), without being preachy or negative. Kids get to adopt animals from shelters, answer animal fact questions, and order cruelty-free foods at cafes. The first player to rescue 1 of each of all 5 animals wins the game.”

Kidlicious by Stephanie & Anneliese Howard


“The first completely plant-based cookbook designed to get kids excited about eating healthy. Kidlicious has covers Breakfast through dessert, fun and healthy recipes to get the whole family cooking together!”

Vegan Allergy Wristband 


“Allermates has the solution – their new “Captain V” Vegan Wristband is a fun and simple way to make it easily known that your child does not eat animal products, making it much easier for teachers and caregivers to always know about dietary restrictions that need to be adhered to.  It’s also fun for kids with the bright green band and Captain V on the front, giving them something fun to wear while also bringing awareness to their lifestyle.  Band fits most children from ages 2 up, and has three adjustable snaps for varying wrist sizes.  Latex-free band with nickel-free snaps is allergen-safe, and product quality meets and exceeds both US and European safety standards.”

Chicken Run


“A comedy drama set on a Yorkshire chicken farm in 1950s England, the story follows the turbulent romance between Rocky the Rooster and Ginger the chicken, both of whom yearn for freedom and are planning a daring “prisoner of war” style escape. Both chickens are tired of being repressed and know they face an eventual certain death, so in planning their escape, they rally with their fellow chickens.”

Dave Loves Chickens by Carlos Patino


“Dave Loves Chickens is the first in a series of books for young children examining the unique characteristics of animals and questioning why people eat them. The main character of the book, Dave, is a quirky monster from another planet who knows all sorts of fun and interesting facts about animals. Dave simply loves animals on Earth and encourages others to appreciate them and not eat them! This fun, lighthearted book, full of bold colors and friendly illustrations, is ideal for parents who would like to introduce their children to a more compassionate way of treating animals.”
