Go! Go! Go! Stop!

Go! Go! Go! Stop!
by Charise Mericle Harper
Random House, 2014.  Unpaged.  Picture Book

     Little Green's first word is "Go."  It is Little Green's only word and he says it over and over which is good because it gets all the cranes and bulldozers, and cement mixers working on the new bridge.  Go Go Go, they go. But soon they are all going and going until they run into each other and make such messes that the bridge work stalls out.  Luckily along comes Little Red who tells everyone to Stop. With Little Green and Little Red taking turns, the trucks and excavators are soon back in business, building the bridge. "Go!" shouts Little Green.  "Stop!" says Little Red.  Before long, everything is herky-jerky.  Shall we stop? Shall we go?  Just in time, along comes Little Yellow . . . .
