Vegan children's book moralizes -- and traumatizes4/21/2012
Vegans, you can abdicate yourself from the pinnacle of the food chain, but don't try to scare us off our bacon sundaes. And, please don't try to make our kids read Ruby Roth's new book, "Vegan is Love," a gorgeously illustrated but sinister children's book that graphically depicts bleeding, slaughtered animals and describes their deaths as "violent and sad." It's no wonder Roth's unsmiling stepdaughter told "Today" her favorite food is kale. Critics say the book encourages vegan kids to see their meat-eating friends as cold-blooded killers. One thing is for sure: As far as bedtime stories go, you're better off with "Goodnight Moon."
Should kids be vegan?
