who Flat Stanley is dont worry Most people know him when they see him He is short on words but big on character At first glance you might judge him to be a little one dimensional but as the saying goes dont judge a book by its A book is exactly where Flat Stanley came from The book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown is about a boy who is crushed by a bulletin board but goes on to lead an active life full of many adventures Sixth graders in Ardis Anderts class at Murray County Central Elementary School in Minnesota each made a Flat Stanley to send on a road trip via the Postal Service We are

really been she said People have sent back wonderful Photo submitted Sixth graders in Ardis Anderts class at Murray County Central Elementary School in Minnesota made Flat Stanleys to send around the

highly recommended that families and students experience the Flat Stanley adventure by either responding when Flat Stanley visits or by sending their own Flat Stanleys out into the world What better way to send Flat Stanley back to Minnesota or into the world than with a pair ofLederhosen Or perhaps a postcard of Landa Park or the Main Plaza The opportunities are endless Flat Stanley also might
