Herb the Vegetarian Dragon

I found this book today, while passing time sitting at the computer....isn't it fantastic? I think I may get it for my kids, just to give them more confidence when asked why they are vegetarian (other then the typical response..."because our mommy makes us!"). The description says :
"The story of a very gentle but courageous dragon, Herb the Vegetarian Dragon teaches young readers that it’s ok to stand up for what you believe in. When the local villagers take the vegetarian Herb captive – instead of his meat-eating companions – he must rely on the truth and help of a small friend. A charming tale to start the conversation about respecting others’ lifestyles and beliefs, this book and toy Herb are great gifts for your small friends."

That book looks great! I'm always looking for veggie friendly books!
cool. I'll keep that in mind when I have kids
Brooke, I loved the idea of the book too, but I read it once (they used to sell it at Sunflower Market) and thought it could be a bit traumatizing for some kids. There is a lot of people eating in it and some really sinister characters. I'd maybe glance at it to see if you think it would be suitable for your kids first. My .02! :)
krispycheks, thanks for the heads-up! I will definitely check it out before I buy it. :-)
