| by Michael Allen

Ruby Roth, a mom who writes children's books about veganism, has drawn criticism for her new book 'Vegan is Love.'

The book, which goes on sale on April 24, slams people for using animals for clothing, medical testing and entertainment purposes. However, it is the nutritional claims that have caught fire.

Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

A Kirkus book review claimed: "It could easily scare a young child into eating vegan, and, without proper guidance, that child could become malnourished."

Nicole German, a dietician, stated: "The main problem I have with this book is that children are impressionable, and this is too sensitive of a topic to have a child read this book. It could easily scare a young child into eating vegan, and, without proper guidance, that child could become malnourished."

In a video book trailer (below) for 'Vegan is Love,' Roth says: "If we want to move towards an era of solutions where the planet is healing, people are fed and healthy, there is good in the way we do business and a reverence in the world for all living things, then all we have to is live that life ourselves."
