Many early elementary students are first introduced to Flat Stanley at school with the original Flat Stanley story in which poor Stanley gets flattened by a bulletin board. It’s fun at first because he can slip under doors and he gets to go on vacations simply by being mailed in an envelope. Being flat does get old after a while though and Stanley really just wants to be a normal boy like everyone else.
Flat Stanley’s Worldwide Adventures takes Stanley’s adventures to a whole new level and does so in easy to read chapter books complete with adventures to different countries. If you have an early elementary reader who is ready for beginning chapter books and loves to learn about new places (Stanley travels to places like Australia, Washington, D.C., Japan, Egypt, Africa and Mt. Rushmore.) then these will be a huge hit in your house.
