Summary

Red Man and Green Man’s Great Escape

Red Man and Green Man have lived in the traffic lights all their life. One night when it goes dark and everyone is asleep, they climb out of the traffic lights and soon find themselves on a fantastic and scary adventure. But will they be able to get back to their home in the lights before everyone wakes up?

All parents want their children to learn how to cross the road safely and to become familiar with traffic signals. Red Man and Green Man’s Great Escape is perfect for helping them to learn about crossing the road in a fun and entertaining way.

The inspiration for this story came from Ann’s grandson while waiting to cross the road. “Grandma, do the Red and Green Man ever come out of the traffic lights?" He asked. That was it, a flash of inspiration that led to a series of Red Man and Green Man stories for children.

Red Man and Green Man is carefully written to make sure young kids have an understanding why the traffic lights are so important when we cross busy roads. This is done through bringing the fun characters in this children’s story to life.

Ann Twigg’s ability within the book to draw children into her stories and help them to use their imagination is amazing. This book is bursting with fun and laughter and gives children a sound understanding of why they should use the traffic lights when crossing busy roads. 

Independence is an important part of growing up and as parents we want to ensure that our children are safe. These books help children understand what traffic lights are and the importance of crossing the road safely. 

Let your child listen to something fun and educational over and over again.

What the traffic lights get up to after dark

Believe this is the first in the series of the red and green men adventures. We seemed to listen to these out of order but it really doesnt matter.
This story tells of the adventures of what the little red and green men get up to after dark. It really made my little girls imagination work in overtime. She came up with her own stories of what the little red and green men could get up to. A lovely relaxing listen and we would recommend this and the others in the series.

The 1st of Red man and Green man’s adventures

We read these in a different order but it sounds as if this should be the first as the introduction is more descriptive.

This story tells creatively of the small electric men escaping the traffic lights during the night to explore the playground and school yard. They encounter some tricky characters such as a cat, dog and rat but become more and more resilient as they voyage on.

The language is very familiar for early years to early junior school and it’s read with a soothing gentle voice so is appropriate for listening to at any time of day.

Despite reading this series in the wrong order, it’s a great series of books and they read very well with lots for kids to imagine. We particularly like the idea behind the characters and it demonstrates that characters can be found all around us. Prior or post reading conversation can be had about night times, traffic lights, water and electricity etc.

A great read.
