vegan kids book spanish


Ay, Sweet Agent of Change! I have been waiting for this day!

The Spanish language edition of That's Why We Don't Eat Animals, "Por Eso No Comemos Animales,"  has just been released and is now available all over the world, wherever libros are sold!

For me, this is so much bigger than a personal mark of my book's success. This publication is a mark of the strength of the vegan movement and its swift growth internationally. This publication means that the movement has become strong enough, worldwide, that publishers—who are always risk-averse—are taking it seriously now and trusting that the markets are there to support a release like this one. THAT'S HUGE, and that's because of ALL of our activism, yours and mine.

I am extremely proud to be revolutionizing the way the next generation eats, thinks, and lives. But I can only do it with your grassroots support. 

Spanish is the official language of 20 countries, please help me get this resource to a huge new population for change by sharing this news with all your Spanish-speaking friends and family. We're in this together. 

• Save the book cover image to share.
• Post to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. 
• Search for the title wherever you buy books normally and donate a copy to your local library. 
• Buy a copy for friends, family, doctors' offices, waiting rooms, your child's school library, etc. 

Sí, se puede! (Did you know that both Cesar Chavez (d. 1993) and Dolores Huerta, civil and labor rights activists and founders of the National Farm Workers Association are both veg? The movements go hand-in-hand.)

With pride and joy,


P.S. Please visit each of my book's pages in the shop for links to all available translations: German, Italian, French, Greek, Korean, Polish, Finnish, Slovenian, and stay tuned for more.

Help Yourself is absolutely made for all kids to enjoy, regardless of current eating habits...the recipes just happen to be plant-based!

Will picky eaters like these recipes?
Everything about this book is specially designed to excite and engage kids, even the pickiest of eaters. The pictures are inspiring and the directions encourage taste-testing, making it irresistible for kids to try their own creations...and it works! The feedback from parents has been amazing—kids are getting into the kitchen and making and tasting things they never thought they would—and asking for seconds, no less!

I like this book, but I'm an adult...is that weird?
No! This is a kids book, but mostly in name and ease! It's a great gift for busy/lazy adults, or really anyone who likes simple, natural, easily accessible whole-food ingredients and recipes that can be made in minutes.
