Violet’s Vegan Comics for Small Children and Big Kids
By Violet Plum and daughter Miranda Lemon

“Your creations are such inspirations for children, parents, and teachers everywhere!  What an original and substantial way to make people, and children, of all kinds, feel the same and come together for a greater purpose.  Kudos to you ladies, what a positive impact on our society!!”    Sabra Anne October 2016

“I want to let you know how much I appreciate the safe reading space you provide for the younger set.  This dad feels 100% confident in the content of your works, and my child just gobbles up every word.  Please continue your excellent work, and we’ll keep reading.”   KeithDecember  2017

Violet’s Vegan Comics began six years ago as a result of my own love of adventure comics growing up.  When I was, I don’t know, about ten years old, I would eagerly await the landing of Tammy & Misty comics on the doormat every week.  I love a good story.  Something exciting, gripping, suspenseful; something with intrigue; something funny; something engrossing.

Raising Vegan Kids in a Non-Vegan World
By Julia Feliz Brueck

The Baby and Toddler Vegan Feeding Guide  by Julia Feliz Brueck is a to-the-point guide for parents looking to raise their little ones safely on plant-based diets. Evidence-based information and dietitian approved! Book trailer below.

Raising a vegan child in a very non-vegan world is certainly no easy task – not because it’s not doable. Remaining strong in one of the most vulnerable times in our lives because of the pressure to conform to what the majority of society deems we should do is no easy feat.

I’ve now been in the midst of raising two little vegans since conception for over four years. Early into that journey and years later I still feel confident that:

“One of the best and most important decisions I have made is choosing to raise both my sons with vegan values. As a vegan of almost a decade, I want to pass on the same values that have made me question my everyday life choices and choose to make my impact on other living beings as small as possible. Apart from helping them develop a connection to other living beings, the most natural way to help them start their own vegan journey is through what they eat. Read more

Vegan Family of Six: featuring 13 year old Cody Elkins, Racquetball Champion
By Great Vegan Athletes

Cody 10 years Old

Success from early years

With a supportive vegan family of six who love sport, Cody Elkins became a noted vegan athlete at an early age. As a junior competing in racquetball, he had already achieved great things.  In 2013, aged eight, he was the American Junior champion, and in 2014 he was the California State Champion and finished third in the Junior Olympics. In 2015 he finished third in the World Outdoor Championships and won the World Indoor Championships for 10 and under.  Cody also retained his state title.  He was ranked #2 in the USA in 2015 in the 10 and under category.

Vegan power!

“I am 100% vegan” Cody told us proudly in 2015. “I was born a vegetarian 10 years ago and my mom read the book “Skinny Bitch” eight years ago and we went vegan the very next day.  I have been vegan eight years and feel great about it because I am saving animals.” Read more

Dominika Piasecka – My Life As An Activist
By Vegan Life Magazine

Dominika Piasecka Talks About Her Life As A Vegan Activist And Shares Her Stories From The Front Line Of Demonstrations Across The UK.

For many vegans, eradicating animal products from their diet and lifestyle is simply not enough in the effort to save animals from pain and suffering. Even after fully committing to veganism in 2012, student and campaigner Dominika Piasecka felt as though she could, and should, be doing more. She told Vegan Life: “I didn’t want to be a person who was content with how things currently are, so I turned to animal rights. We must actively intervene to stop violence, not just say we don’t want to participate in it.”

After initially getting involved with animal rights and campaigning when she was still a vegetarian, Dominika was encouraged to watch a speech by activist Gary Yourosfky, and was instantly hooked on the idea of veganism.

“Every single sentence he said made sense to me, and veganism became logical. I watched the whole speech and excluded cow’s milk from my diet right away. I could not believe that I was living a lie for so many years – I had no idea about the dairy and egg industries and in the past I never understood why people became vegan.” Read more

Chloe Falkenheim, Young Animal Activist and Founder of VegYouth
By Chloe Falkenheim

Hi, I’m Chloe, the founder of VegYouth. I started VegYouth when I was 16 years old and in the eleventh grade (in August 2013).

Path to veganism:

My story dates back to when I was 3 years old. I had just finished watching the movie Chicken Run and came to the shocking revelation that chicken indeed does come from chickens. I put away the thought for some time.

This thought resurfaced when I was 6 years old, when a book of fun facts about pigs sparked on obsession of them. I read Charlotte’s Web, fiction books about pigs, and one where the main character was a pig who did not want to be slaughtered as well as many other pig books and movies. I decided to never eat pork again, even though my family never ate pork anyway, so this obsession did not really change my eating habits. I also like to say that I became an activist when I was six, because I cried whenever anyone even talked about eating pork and even wanted to start a pig appreciation club. Read more

The Vegan Librarian: Teaching Empathy To Children Through Language
By Madison Bishop first posted in Acti-Veg

Since I began working with kids, I’ve gotten used to a lot of unexpected questions. “Why do you have hair?” is one I answered my first week on the job as the public library’s new children’s librarian, directed at me by an accusatory preschooler who did not seem to realize that everyone in the room with him (save a few bald infants) had hair, too. I thought for a moment before responding, “I think we all have hair to keep our head warm. But we can research it together, if you want.” In the time since, I’ve answered inquiries about sharks, Judy Blume, peanut allergies, and everything in between.

But the most common question, the one that every parent and teacher knows well, is “Why?” Read more
