Most Good, Least Harm explores how to make better choices as consumers as well as direct ways to become involved with the community.

She has also written two books for young people, Moonbeam Gold Medal winner Claude and Medea: The Hellburn Dogs, about 12-year-old activists inspired by an eccentric substitute teacher to right wrongs where they find them, and So, You Love Animals: An Action-Packed, Fun-Filled Book to Help Kids Help Animals.

Weil is on the graduate faculty at Cambridge College, and she has served as a consultant on humane education in many countries around the world, including Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Brazil, France, England, Canada, Singapore, Sweden, Australia, and Japan. She has written numerous articles and essays on humane education and compassionate living, and serves on the board of directors of HEART (Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers).
