Flat Stanley

We finished reading the book "Flat Stanley" by Jeff Brown. If you're not familiar with the story, the main character, Stanley gets flattened by a bulletin board that falls on top of him while he is sleeping. Luckily, he wasn't hurt - just flattened! Later in the story, Stanley visits some friends in California by mailing himself in an envelope. After a nice visit, his friends send Stanley back to his family with some pictures and descriptions of his trip. From this part of the story, we got the idea to create our very own Flat Stanley to send away for an adventure of his very own! Mrs. van Rees created a blog where others can tell us about Stanley's adventures and include pictures too. Our friends and family can also send in paper copies of their adventures instead - it's up to them.

We'd love for you to check out our Flat Stanley blog! You can read all about his adventures here.
