"Red Light, Green Light" uses genograms, heritage, and spirituality to raise a teen's positive view of self. It begins with a scripted message to help educators, parents, and counselors talk to kids about body changes. The book continues with a depth that helps teens think about the consequences of behavior without feeling threatened.
The Great Falls Tribune feature editor, Richard Ecke said, "Colberg would be happy if the book helped one teen avoid the angst of teen pregnancy." The book's illustrator is L. A. Times artist, Joel Nakamura.
