About GO! GO! GO! STOP!:

When Little Green comes to town and says his first word, “Go!”, the whole town gets busy building a bridge. Little Green helps everyone do their job, from dump truck to fork lift, with haste, but what happens when there is too much go, and not enough stop? Little Red saves the day with his first work, “STOP!”, but can Little Green and Little Red work together to find the right balance to finish bridge?

Filled with lively action words, alliteration, and excitement, this colorful, busy book with a bold package captures the energy of little boys and girls and the timeless lure of trucks and machines. Complete with a message about working together and finding balance, GO! GO! GO! STOP! is a wonderful addition to any child’s library.

This bright, fun book with a bold package captures the endless energy of little boys and the timeless appeal of trucks and machines–both for building and knocking down. Plus, it has an underlying message about working together to get things done.
