Compassionate Press is a Lifestyle Movement

Compassionate Press publishes vividly illustrated, lightly-rendered educational books to empower future generations to build a better world. Our books are intended to be shared by parents and children, and adults of all ages in a read-aloud fashion. 

We invite you to share in the Compassionate Press vision and hope you enjoy reading and colouring each of our books as much as I had writing, illustrating, and producing them for you and your family.

Living a 'Compassionate Life'

As a mother, I try to be as mindful as possible when teaching valuable lessons to my child. As parents, we are laying the groundwork for our children's emotional capacity, and as such, we must be educated ourselves in the ways of the heart.

Compassion in Action - Teaching Our Children

As a parent, it is hard to be always in 'teacher mode.' No one can be a role model every minute of every day, but that doesn't mean our children aren't paying attention. Children learn by mimicking our behaviour and as such, incorporating compassionate actions into our day-to-day is so important.

Raising Healthy Plant-based Children

Did you know that many parents are raising happy, healthy children on a plant-based diet? If you're new to this way of thinking, you might be wondering how to go about doing this, and I understand this as I went through the same thing as a Mom myself! Eating a healthy plantbased diet is as beneficial for children as it is for adults, and success is all in the planning.

'Who' are You Feeding Your Family?

Learning about where our food comes from, the cost to the environment, and the animals, should make you re-think your meal strategy.

Be Kind to Every Kind beautifully waves in concepts of justice in a way that will nurture the kindness inherent in children. I love that Maritza Oliver never talks down to kids, even addressing "grown-up" issues such as social injustice, speciesism, sexism, ableism, and racism.

Lauren Ornelas, Food Empowerment Project

Although geared towards children, people of all ages need to hear her message: that being kind to animals means not eating them. I teach my children that we practice the golden rule towards animals, and I’m pleased that now I can read them this important idea from A Pig Is a Dog Is a Kid.

Anna Pippus, Director Animal Justice

I found this book from Vegan Children's Books to be very thorough at explaining all of the reasons why we shouldn’t and don’t need to drink cow’s milk. My almost 5 year old loved it and had a lot of questions about the drawings. It is beautifully illustrated and shows the emotions of the animals without being too graphic. A must have for any vegan family!
