Featured on CNN, FOX, Today, and other major media outlets, Ruby Roth is an artist, author, and former teacher whose children’s books have received international attention and garnered praise from celebrities, doctors, nutritionists, and leading activists. Vegan since 2003, Roth was teaching art at an elementary school when her students’ fascination with her eating habits inspired her to write That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals in 2009—the first book of its kind in children’s literature. Vegan Is Love and V Is for Vegan followed. “In my experience at home and in the classroom, kids find the connection between food, health, and the planet fascinating,” says Roth, “They’re not only entirely capable of understanding, but excited to be included in the conversation and thrilled to take action. Help Yourself is a super fun way to teach kids about their personal and planetary agency.” Roth lives in Los Angeles with her beau and 11-year-old stepdaughter. They are all happy, healthy vegans.

      You can buy it online or participating retailers. Ask your local book store to order it for you if they don’t carry it already. It’s hyperlinked to purchase on amazon above.
