Family Storytime: Go! Go! Go! Stop!

Amy reads Go! Go! Go! Stop!, written and illustrated by Charise Mericle Harper, and published by Knopf.

This is an illustrated picture book for young children about trucks, traffic signals, and working together. LIttle Green only knows how to Go, and when he joins the construction of a new bridge, things get a little out of hand. But then Little Red shows up, who only knows how to Stop, and brings the construction to a screeching halt. They’re going to have to figure out how to go and stop to get the bridge built!

After the story, Amy demonstrates how to make a papercraft traffic signal that can “turn on” and “turn off” its lights.
