“A timely, universal and critical message conveyed through the voice of a young child. This beautifully written and illustrated story provides the perfect blend of courage and responsibility to convey the growing dangers of carelessness and waste, and how individual actions can make a difference. Maria Godsey hits the bullseye with her first children’s book.”

"A wonderful way to explain and teach our kids more about recycling and taking full ownership of ones actions! My son directly started collecting straws off the ground. "Not for me, please!" sets the base for change: awareness and education. The rhymes make it interesting to follow and the additional info on the pages are provoking facts waiting to be discussed. With the beautiful design and the nice make up, this book is a also a perfect good night story.

"My neighbour introduced the book, 'Not for me, please! I choose to act green' to me and I am so glad she did! It comforts me to know there are books like this available that teaches young children about personal action they can take to protect the environment and that one can take a stand for something they believe in. I will surely be buying a copy for my nieces and nephews and look forward to reading and discussing the story together."
"A wonderful very well written and illustrated kids book about environmental challenges."
