Want your kids to read some great books with lessons of  love, respect and compassion to help them grow into mindful humans with an ethical worldview – get them these books about nature, animals, health and wellbeing.

From colourful artwork by renowned artists to dynamic text, well written to  illustrated books; they all make for a great way to introduce kids to increasingly important topics. Kids love animals and nature so they easily relate to the message in the books, encouraging them to think for themselves, be kind, eat healthy and question everything.

These books are loved by kids but adults will enjoy them too - "A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest." said C.S. Lewis, and I couldn’t agree more! Fun, creative, educational with many DIY projects; they come in various genres and styles - educational, fiction,  kids cookbooks, rhymes and fantasy/adventure etc.

The PETA Kids website has good recommendations for children’s books & they have an e-store too. Amazon, Flipkart and Vegan Publishers are other websites to buy these books from plus you can always google for more options.  You can buy them in e-copies from Android and IOS, Kindle editions or traditional hardcovers and paperbacks.
