About Vegeterianism
   
Did you know that 16 million people in the US are Vegan or Vegetarian?
 Or that meat consumption has dropped by 12.2% since 2007.
 
 
Benefits of A Vegan, Vegetarian, or Plant-Based (Whole Foods, Organic And Preferably Local Diet):

Your health: Highly processed and refined foods can cause inflammation in your body. Animal products tend to be acidic in nature, also being a cause inflammation. Eating a plant-based diet with plenty of organic vegetables and fruits can provide your body with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are easily digestible, keeping you healthy and energized.

The Environment: The planet is your home – our home – you (and all the rest of us) have to take care of it. Reducing your animal product intake can reduce your carbon footprint. If you choose to eat local, it is the best way to reduce it even more.

The Economy: If you shop local, organic and seasonal, you can take the control back and prevent corporations from dictating your life and you will be supporting local farmers and businesses.

Compassion: Believe it or not, but as you start eating plant-based, your compassion can increase. You can naturally start caring more about animals, nature and other people around you.

Fun book Facts!


The book has a sing-a-long song that readers can download off the website. The song lyrics and guitar chords are on the last page of the book, so that teachers and parents that play guitar can sing together!

The book also teaches kids about the days of the week, and has reminders for kids to eat their greens!

The book teaches kids about animals habitats, accurate animal physiology and displays vegetarian  morality views, in a non-judgemental or harsh way like some of the other vegetarian children's books on the market today.

The book purposely anthropomorphizes
the animals behaviors to relate emotional content easily to the children, while not making the characters seem overly humanistic.

The book shows the rarely discussed aspect of the spiritual/philosophical aspect of vegetarian ideals in a way that relates easily to children the "you are what you eat" paradigm, where negativity is transferred from sentient beings that experience emotions into the body of those who consume them.

The book also indirectly implies and supports vegan ideals. However, no dairy situations and presented in the book, because it is not a natural part of the animals diets.

Partnerships with Products
We are also exploring the possibility of partnering with vegan/Vegeterian food product companies to promote good health and Eco-friendly lifestyles.
Some children's books are now purposely being written for partnerships with other companies to cross promote both the book and their product. There are many different ways these partnerships could work and it is becoming and increasingly popular way to use product placement In a symbiotic manner.  We believe our book is a great candidate for this sort of partnership. Some examples are when the book can  be used for product's promotional campaigns, with the companies logos and product information embedded and either sold or given away as promotional items.
