  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 July #1
    A little green circle knows only one word—"Go!" And when he gets to a construction site, that "Go!" sets a lot of things in motion. A bulldozer, dump truck, tow truck, and crane, among others, all get to work building a bridge. "But then," with everyone moving so fast, and as Little Green's "Go!" gets faster, things become stuck and stacked up. It's only when a red circle appears with its one word—"Stop!—that the machines get a rest. It takes a while for Little Red and Little Green to come to a real working relationship, but when they do, things go beautifully, especially once Little Yellow ("slow down") adds a useful phrase for the bridge traffic. This is a terrific book for kids to enjoy, learn from, and, yes, think about. Even in their larger world, children will come to the conclusion that life works better when you know when to stop and go (and when to slow down). Harper's lighthearted pictures, with all kinds of personalized shapes and machines, will delight children, who'll find lots to look at in every kinetic spread. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
