    I received a copy of Meatless from Netgalley, in return for an honest review.I ve been a vegetarian myself for over 1o years now, and my kids often like to ask questions about it so when I saw this book, I was naturally drawn to it The book which is incidentally written by a meat eater , provides a non biased, informative view on vegetarianism, talking about the history of eating meat, the various religions and cultures that choose not to eat it, plus offering helpful advice to becoming a vegetarian I particularly enjoyed sections on the history it was well researched and highly accessible I also liked the nutritional information, as so often, people struggle to understand how veggie diets can t be lacking in some way or another The illustrations complimented the content nicely, and overall, it was an interesting, useful read At times, I felt the book was perhaps slightly too dense for younger audiences My two are 7 and 5, and my 5 year old wandered off at one point ...

    Meatless is a much needed addition to our public library The author presents reasoned arguments for both eating or not eating meat, and provides helpful dietary commentary on making sure that children who decide to become vegetarian will still get the necessary proteins and vitamins.One page in particular was very heartwarming, reminding readers to always make room for everyone at the table Eating is a very social activity, and it s important to be inclusive while st...

    This book will fill a void in our school library While we have cookbooks and books on nutrition, we don t have anything for kids who might be interested in becoming vegetarian Instead of approaching the topic in a militant or didactic fashion, the author explains her own experience in becoming aware of food choices, guides the reader into a brief look at the history of meat eating, explores various reasons people might have for reducing or removing meat from their diets, then offers responsible and healthy suggestions for a one week meat free trial Also included is a short list of cookbooks recommended as good and kid friendly and a list of resources.Things I especially liked a nicely done explanation of complete proteins from legume grain combos and how that has led to some of the different ethnic dishes, as well as a description of some of these combinations diversity in the illustrations and the sensitivity ...

    I received a copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.After recently reading this article in the Washington Post, in which an online survey found 7% of people surveyed thought chocolate milk could mes from brown cows, and an study in 2011 found that only 22% of all 4 6th graders know pickles are cucumbers, I thought reviewing a few books about food and farms would be a good plan Meatless is an excellent primer on vegetarianism, veganism or even flextarianism as alternative diets There are so many reasons, well described, from animal welfare to limiting greenhouse gases for vegetarianism The book gives a thorough grounding in the ethics, the pragmatics and even offers example meal plans Targeting a Middle School reader, the book is an accessible read Since I was a strict vegetarian from age 12 24, I appreciate the admonishments about the need to eat a diet balanced in protein, minerals and vit...

    I really enjoyed this book I mostly picked it up because I really like the illustrations, but the topic was interesting to me too I was pleasantly surprised reading it I don t eat meat, but I thought the book was going to be preachy but it isn t at all In fact the author is a meat eater and the point of this book really seems to be introducing children to different types of eating vegetarians, vegans, pescetarians, etc , ways to eat healthy, different religious views on meat, and various reasons why people don t eat meat factory farming, high cost, environmental I like that this book basically presented some facts and told kids it s their decision I like the ending a lot A few quotes I liked Pythagoras believed that animals and humans belong to the same family, and that when a human dies, the soul is reborn in the body of an an...

    This title is nominated for the 2019 Hackmatack Award in the non fiction category It explores the question of whether or not to eat meat, and provides helpful information for kids who are curious about going meatless Touching on the differences between vegetarian, vegan, flexitarian, etc, this book uses kid friendly language to explain how different cultures religions, and where we live on the planet, influence our diet The illustrations were great, and I really appreciated the nonjudgmental tone the idea that there is a place for everyone at the table I thought it was a great idea to include meal ideas for a full meatless week, and it was cool to read about foods from other cultures that I am not familiar wi...

    This is a really good introduction to vegetarianism for kids for adults too I like that it touches on all of the reasons that people can choose from to go meatless and it stresses how important it is to further your food education as well It touches on issues like factory farming and food production costs in language that manages to stay informative without being scary for little ones I loved the weekly meatless meal plan even though I ve been meatless fo...
