The reasons why people choose to eat or not to eat meat vary widely. For some, it’s because of their religious beliefs. For others, it’s an issue of animal welfare. And for still others, it can be a question of the environmental costs of raising animals for food.
For Sarah Elton, helping to kill a chicken was a turning point. While it didn’t make her become a vegetarian, it did change the way she thinks about meat, and it made her curious to learn more about why some people choose to eat less meat—or none at all.
This is a great book for everyone who is concerned about their diet. It is also a book for people who are wondering whether or not they should eat as much meat as they are eating. It is a book that is quite detailed in its approach, and despite the fact that it is a kid’s book, it is a book that all of us can learn from.
I thoroughly loved the book. And after reading this book, I will surely be eating a lot less meat!
