Each issue of Vegetarian Journal includes book reviews. In the most recent issue, Amy Dell reviews Our Symphony with Animals, by Aysha Akhtar, MD. Amy states, “In her collection of heart-warming and gut-wrenching stories, Dr. Akhtar draws an indisputable connection between humans and animals. The narrative format of the book provides a beautiful backdrop to the scientific- and research-based information she provides. If anyone ever doubted that animals hold a special place in our hearts, this book would call their beliefs into question.”

The second book review focuses on An Unordinary Lion, a children’s book written by Dragana Vucic Dekic. Marcy Schveibinz’s review begins with “Young readers will enjoy this rhyming tale about a ferocious lion who was pretty ordinary until the day he injures himself. He becomes unlike other lions that can run fast to catch their prey and must rely on plants for nourishment. He learns from other plant-eating animals, and realizes that he, too, can be plant-strong.”
