Summary

Bullying is an age-old problem and every parent’s worst fear. This audiobook was created by Ann with the intention of helping children with this problem. As parents, we’re very aware that some children like to take control of others in their peer group and that this can lead to children being too scared to go to school or even out to play. 

In this audiobook, the broken Red Man traffic signal is replaced by Bully Red Man. Green Man in the signal beneath him just wants to make friends with the new Red Man. But Bully Red Man soon makes it clear that he is far more important and doesn’t want to be friends with a lowly Green Man. 

Poor Green Man is frightened, and when Bully Red Man goes to sleep that night, the Green Man climbs out of his lights and crosses the road and climbs up the pole on the other side of the street because he feels frightened in case the Bully Red Man wakes up and shouts at him. When he tells the other Red Man and Green Man on the opposite side of the street just how nasty the Bully Red Man has been, they try to think up a plan to stop Bully Red Man. 

Children often find themselves in this sort of situation and may not even tell their parents about what is happening.

Ann created this story to try to show children that they can speak out against bullying.

This audiobook is full of assurances for children who find themselves in a similar position, and the underlying message throughout the audiobook is that we must speak out against bullying.

An imaginative idea

My three year old loves this, it's a great idea for a story and has really captured her imagination. She chats about it whenever we cross a road!

An imaginative story about kindness and teamwork

Green Man and Red Man live happily together inside the traffic light until one day disaster strikes and Red Man is replaced by a bully! A highly imaginative story which really appealed to my traffic light loving child. It highlights the importance of being kind and tolerant of others in a gentle, playful way.

A nice easy listen series

This is a great series and ideally could be read in order, however it’s very descriptive and therefore we understand what has happened to Red Man prior to the story causing his legs to stop working and making him feel poorly. Because of this, Red Man’s replacement brings distress to the other Red man and green men as he is rude and behaves like a bully towards the others.
This story could lead to conversations about bullying and how readers could deal with unkindness. It could encourage children to think about the way they treat others and the language that they use. Red man’s replacement is extremely competitive and harsh to the others calling them stupid and silly and belittling them. This leads to some easy predictions as negative behaviour usually leads to negative consequences.

My daughter enjoyed this story and said that the voice was very ‘relaxing’.
