Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

The Kids’ Guide to Helping Animals

Jealous, hungry, inspired. That’s what I felt the instant I started paging through PETA’s new Kids’ Guide to Helping Animals, the free magazine from PETA that will help kids channel their passion for animals into easy everyday actions. Jealous—because as an animal-loving kid with no idea how to put that to good use, I spent a lot of time crying at Old Yeller and missed out on tons of opportunities to make a real difference (and yes, in case you have any doubts, kids can make a difference).

Designed for the not-quite-tween, the Kids’ Guide has tips and tricks for all aspects and phases of a kid’s school and social life. From what to do if your school is planning a field trip to the zoo to cruelty-free shopping tips. Hungry—because of the luscious photos of vegan snack goodness (and because it’s close to lunchtime). Inspired—to provide my son with as many opportunities as possible to make choices that will help cultivate his innate sense of compassion. Sure, he can’t read yet, but it’s never too early to start talking about helping animals!

    I think it’s great when kids are vegetarians or vegans, because they inspire other children around them, and when making the right decisions, they inspire their generation to do the better.

    My twelve year old daughter has already begun to make a difference. Since she was nine she has been a vegetarian and is currently trying to become a vegan. I have been a Vegetarian since I was 10 and have educated her with as much information as she wanted once she made this choice. She made this choice on her own. She has protested at the circus for the past three years for animal rights. When she grows up she wants to be a spokes person for PETA and she wants to have a talk show like Ellen I am so proud of her and all of her accomplishments.
