Flat Stanley

Flat Stanley
My great nephew, Anthony, had a fun class project. Each child cut out a paper figure, dressed it, added embellishments, then chose a friend or relative for their figure to visit for a month. Anthony, who lives just outside of Washington, D.C., nominated my sister Judy as the recipient of this houseguest.

Flat Stanley
Flat Stanley had a wonderful month. He went to the post office (they stamped him); the liqour store; the grocery store; the library; the local school where he and Judy read a story to first graders; church; a clay modeling class; and finally he and Judy boarded a plane for Florida where he collected seashells before going back home with souveniers of his visit and a story book of his adventures written and illustrated by my sister.
Great Aunt Judy
My niece, Melissa, helped the class pack their figures for mailing. She was concerned that Flat Stanley would be bored in Honeoye in comparison to the other figures who were visiting Europe and Asia. It certainly sounds like Flat Stanley had a great visit and will have many tales to tell of his adventures right here in the U.S.
