I bought the first official book for my "baby". We were at an indie bookstore that we love when I spotted this and I just had to have it. Yes, I am going to raise said baby vegetarian/vegan until he or she is old enough to decide for itself. This is a constant debate between C and I. I would never want to force my child to eat anything or to keep them from trying things, so between C and I, hopefully this child will get a balanced take on things. The reason I like this book is that it teaches that meat eaters and vegetarians alike can live together and still respect each others choices. It is a lesson I had to learn on my own since I was 13 and decided to become a vegetarian, and it is an important one that I hope to instill in my child. Plus, Herb the herbivore dragon is pretty cool if I do say so myself.
