Book Review: Meatless

Meatless: A Fresh Look at What You Eat, written by Sarah Elton and illustrations by Julie McLaughlin, is quick glimpse into life as a vegetarian.

This children's book may be utilized as a family guide to vegetarianism. Within the What Is a Vegetarian Exactly? chapter, the author shared, "A vegetarian is someone who chooses not to eat meat.... But only a small percentage of people are true vegetarians.... That said, more and more adults--and kids, too--are becoming vegetarians. And some people who do eat meat are deciding to have less of it."

In addition to the Introduction and Conclusion, this book is divided into four sections, which includes the following: A History of Meat-Eating, Why Go Vegetarian, If Not Meat, Then What, and Becoming a Vegetarian. At the back of the book, there's a helpful Glossary, as well as Index, Sources, and Further Reading.

Meatless is geared towards young readers, particularly fourth to eighth grades. However, this book is a helpful resource for all ages interested in learning more about vegetarianism. 

Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
