Green GO, Red STOP!

by Tara Hill-Starks


GENRE:  Children's



JJ and his friend CC venture out into the neighborhood on their bikes. They meet friends and encounter life challenges that make them think about their choices. JJ and CC must make decisions based on kindness, helping others, and honesty. JJ is guided by his fascination of traffic lights and the valuable life lessons his adoring and wise grandmother taught him. Along the way, JJ remembers what he has learned. Will JJ and CC make good choices?

Green GO, Red STOP! is an interactive and fun read for children to learn and understand the concepts of character traits and how important they are in life. The question to the young reader is Green GO, Red STOP! What YOU gonna do off top?



CC and I like riding our bikes through the neighborhood. I pretend my bike is a Jeep. She pretends her bike is a Beetle. CC says it’s cute just like her. I’m just ready to ride and have fun. “Let’s go!”

When CC turns out of her driveway, her bike scratches her mother’s car. She is afraid to tell her mother. CC asks me not to tell anyone. Should I tell someone?

Green GO, Red STOP!

What YOU gonna do off top?

I say to CC she may want to tell her mother. Being honest and admitting your mistakes are good choices. CC goes to her mother and tells the truth. “Awesome!”



This book is a quick, fun, exciting, and entertaining children’s book!!

This book is filled with clever important and valuable life lessons.

This book teaches kids in a fun, smart, witty, and educational writing style that young readers are sure to enjoy!!

I liked the crafty rhymes sequences and the main tagline phrase that is repeatedly used throughout the story.

I really enjoyed the exciting, bright, vibrant, and colorful illustrations that really pop and make the story stand out.

I also really liked the extras at the end of the book that included additional info about the author, her son, and the inspiration behind the book.

I think many young readers will be sure to easily pick up the story and enjoy reading it out loud or following along as it’s read to them.

All in all, I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it!!  I think all young readers and their families will like this book too!!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading – you won’t be disappointed!!

Her first book, Grandma, I Got This! is inspired by teachings she received from her maternal grandmother as a young child. Her second book, Green GO, Red STOP! is enthused by her young son and his love for the outdoors. Both works capture valuable life lessons young children can learn.

Joseph Starks III, the son of the author, is portrayed by the character JJ in Green GO, Red STOP! As an energetic boy, he finds enjoyment in nature and exploring the outdoors by riding his bike through the neighborhood. On the way to and from school each day, JJ shouts “Green GO, Mommy!” when the light is green and “Red STOP, Mommy!” when the light turns red. His joy and enthusiasm are delightful, inspiring the author to create the title and adventures in the book.
