From the Publisher
"Mom, I think I want to become a vegetarian. But will that really help save the rain forest? More and more children are asking such questions. The Vegetarian Factfinder defines vegetarianism and discusses why people choose such a lifestyle. The author describes the history of the vegetarian movement and the different types of vegetarian diets. Children discuss their decision not to eat meat and offer guidelines for getting along with parents and for living in a meat-eating culture. Up-to-date information on nutrition is included, as well as photos, full-color illustrations, a timeline, a map, and a chart. Teachers and librarians will find The Vegetarian Factfinder explores many topics that are part of elementary and middle school curricula.
