Oh my goodness! What an adorable read aloud!  It has the kids sitting on the edges of their seats, so to speak! (We sit on the carpet. haha) It is about 3 toys and their lives...
Lumphy, StingRay and Plastic are stuffed animals. (Well, Plastic is... what is Plastic, anyway?)
They live with the girl who sleeps on the high bed with the big pillows. It's very nice there.
But what is the meaning of life?
And why is clean better than dirty?
And what will happen if StingRay tries to go in the water?  
Of course, you have to read it with silly voices to make it come alive!  And to the kids, the stuffed animals do come alive...in your classroom.  I have been trying to find a new read  (other than Junie B) and I have found one! It is a must read!   Let me know how you and your students like it!

I love this book too. I read for the first time with my students last year. I just started this book yesterday with this year's class. I'm thinking about reading some of the follow up books to this story as well. So in the spirit of get one, give one...Another favorite read aloud of mine is "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane".

We LOVE this little series of books. For Read Across America our school has a door decoration contest and my kiddos currently having a dilemna choosing between this book and Edward Tulane.
