Has Stanley come to visit you?

I was surprised to see one of my co-workers bring a guest to lunch yesterday . . . namely, Flat Stanley (If you’re not familiar with him, Stanley is a character in a book who is accidentally squashed very flat and afterwards is able to do things like travel to California in an envelope).  She had received him via a relative who teaches the second grade.  I think this must be a popular time of year for classes to send paper Stanleys in the mail, because when my younger cousin sent me a Stanley in the mail a few years ago it was around the time of National Library Week.  If you’d like to see where all these Stanleys are going, you can visit a couple of different websites.  The Official Flat Stanley Project and FlatStanleyBooks.com both let you see (and share) photos of Stanley in all kinds of settings around the world.  Parents and teachers can find ideas for activities involving Stanley at either website.  You can even print out a template for your own Stanley to color.  -Miss Sarah
