Join Luke on his journey to protect what he loves with this engaging children's picture book about sustainability and acting green. After noticing the damage caused to the environment and animals due to trash and waste, Luke decides to take action. He believes he can have a big impact on the world around him and invites his readers to join him!

Using his phrase, 'Not for me, please!' Luke role models how children can harness their inner super-hero and help protect the environment. He introduces the concept of Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse through relatable examples children can understand. The rhyming story is catchy and the illustrations are captivating.

Let's choose to recycle, reduce, and reuse;
and with my strong phrase, there's no way we lose!
Here are some examples to show what I mean,
and how you can join me and begin to act green.


Interesting facts, definitions, and statistics can be found in 'info' boxes throughout the book. The info boxes give a wonderful chance for rich discussions on sustainability, choices, and change at home, in kindergarten, elementary schools, or in reading groups.

At the end of the book, there is a reflection section to prompt dialogue about the topics covered in the book: environment, sustainability, zero waste, impact of plastic, climate change, what it means to recycle, reduce, and reuse, single use plastic, water and energy conservation, and acting green. Children can put in their own words what they have learned and how it applies to them.

Not for me, please! I choose to act green is ideal for children age 5, age 6, age 7, age 8, and age 9.
