Go! Go! Go! Stop!

Go! Go! Go! Stop! illus. by Charise Mericle Harper. Random. Jul. 2015. Board $7.99. ISBN 9780553533910.
Toddler—Harper cleverly uses a busy construction site to introduce action words and traffic signals. The story begins with Little Green, who knows just one word—Go! When he arrives at spot where a new bridge is being built, his rousing shout, "Go! Go! Go!" accelerates the lifting, pulling, mixing, and scooping to the point that things "[get] a little crazy." Little Green doesn't know what to do until Little Red rolls along and brings everything to a screeching halt. With a bit of trial and error, they figure out how to work together and get the job done. Fun mixed-media artwork and personified lights and vehicles guarantee that this title will Go! Go! Go!
