If you are a parent, or a grandparent, of an elementary school child you probably know the story about Flat Stanley. From the Flat Stanley website: Flat Stanley was first flattened by a bulletin board in his original adventure over forty-five years ago, enabling him to fly like a kite, slip under doors, and travel by mail. The same Stanley has inspired countless children to make their own flat character cutouts to send through the mail.
I have four Flat Stanleys from Toronto, Ontario visiting me in Nova Scotia for a couple of weeks. My flat friends are:
Flat Chris, from Chris (age 6, first grade)
Flat Stella, from Celina (age 7, second grade)
Ms. Flat, from Rebecca (age 6, first grade)
and Flat Luke, from Luca (age 6, first grade)
