SkyWatch Friday - FLAT STANLEY AT 6 AM

Flat Stanley wakes up early to watch the sun rise.

My nephew Stone's second grade class has just finished reading the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. In the story, Stanley is flattened, but not hurt, when a bulletin board falls on top of him. His parents, Mr. & Mrs. Lambchop, send him on a vacation (in an envelope) to visit relatives.

Each student in Stone's class has chosen a friend or relative to entertain Flat Stanley on another trip. Stone chose me! I was instructed to dress Stanley in a way to reflect his visit to Los Angeles, so we borrowed Kobe Bryant's Laker uniform! Now Stanley is ready to explore San Pedro, Los Angeles, and the Port.

VERY SOON he will return to Chicago (in an envelope) with photos and a journal of his trip. Stone's class will mark each location that Stanley has visited on a world map. They are excited to see the places where Stanley Lambchop went on his globetrotting adventure!


Every week over 350 websites from all over the World share their Sky images here.

  1. my kids did similar things with stuffed animals when they were little...each "animal" had to journal about their visit at each child's home. I love stanley's view...quite beautiful.


So nice to hear from you!

Warm regards,
