Even the youngest kids who can read, can start to be greener and make their own choices. Through Luke's journey we see the harm done by discarded trash and the many better options which exist. Each page has a colourful picture, a rhymed few sentences, and underneath a small-print explanation with longer words. This may be helpful to adults.
I enjoyed this cheerful little read and I suggest it would go down well with a class or Scouts, or for a family discussion point. The main theme is giving th

This is THE school tool to educate 6–9 y kids on environment.

If you search for a children’s book that explains, what is our responsibility and what can we do, for the environment, then you have found the book you were looking for!

The illustrations in the book are wonderful.
The story s written in rhyme. It’s a nice, an easy to read narrative, that entertains and drawn the children's attention. I love the way that at the bottom of each page, the author explain more to the children (and adults) so

Great content!

I love the examples the author uses throughout the book and the added facts at the bottom of the pages! My kids have started asking me every time we go food shopping, if we can use our reusable bags instead of the plastic ones! I Love how this book is changing our family habits!

This book is for me, please!

I really enjoyed this book. The illustrations were beautiful. The rhymes had good rythm. And the message was perfect and practical for kids- take little steps, by saying "no" to plastic waste, to help make our world a better place.

Great book to introduce youngsters to recycling!

I did enjoy what I could read. The font needs to be larger and/or darker. Parts of it I could not read at all because of this issue.

Would I read this to a child? Most definitely - if the print was larger and/or darker I would!

The message does cover the current best practices for going green, so for educational purposes, it’s pretty good. As a read aloud though, it is neither captivating nor entertaining, coming across as a thinly disguised lecture rather than a story to share.

Not for me, please!: I choose to act green was written by Marian Godsey and illustrated by Christoph Kellner. It was published April 16, 2018 by CreateSpace Independent. It is a fiction picture children’s book, but the story line behind is nonfiction. This book is about learning how to go green. I think this would be an amazing read aloud for students explaining how we can come together to protect the environment. There are many activities that I could branch off of from this read aloud that cou ...more
