Ruby Roth - Author and Illustrator


Vegan since 2003, Roth was teaching art at an elementary school when her students' fascination with veganism inspired her to write That's Why We Don't Eat Animals in 2009—the first book of its kind in children's literature. Vegan Is Love and V Is for Vegan followed. Today, Roth's books have been translated into multiple languages including German, Italian, Korean, French, Polish, Slovenian and Icelandic.

Roth has received international attention for her sensitive, yet frank advocacy of a vegan diet and lifestyle. Complementing her degrees in art and American Studies, she has researched animal agriculture, health, nutrition, and the benefits of a plant-based diet for over a decade. 

Complementing her degrees in art and American Studies, Roth has researched animal agriculture, health, nutrition, and the benefits of a plant-based diet for over a decade, helping raise a vegan child through adolescence.
