Lumphy is a stuffed buffalo. StingRay is a stuffed stingray. And Plastic, well, Plastic isn’t sure what she is.
They all belong to the Little Girl who lives on the high bed with the fluffy pillows. A very nice person to belong to.
Together is best for these three best friends. Together they look things up in the dictionary, explore the basement, and argue about the meaning of life. And together they face dogs, school, television commercials, the vastness of the sea, and the terrifying bigness of the washing machine.

Integrated Literature & Writing Discovery Guides
Level 1 study guides are recommended for a range of primary (grades 2 and 3) students who have acquired the foundational skills to independently read and respond to a simple piece of literature. Each guide is designed to be completed in five weeks, which allows students to comfortably work through six units in a typical school year.
Not sure what level to choose? View our placement guidelines here.
Each week for four weeks, students will:
- Learn to take notes on characters, settings, and plot
- Study vocabulary
- Answer comprehension questions
- Write a short personal response
- Have opportunity to discuss topics related to the story
On the fifth week students are given a selection of hands-on projects to complete.
