Flat Stanley


Who is he ?

  • We got him from the postman on April, 15th, 2003. He made a big trip, to come from USA (Springfield, Missouri).
  • He's a "made of paper" little boy. Kyanni, my US e-pal Sandy's daughter made him in Mrs Caroll's class.
  • He is a character from a book written by Jeff Brown in 1964
  • All over the world, and especially in US and Canada, teachers used him as an educational purpose (reading-writing).

  • I found interesting websites in relation with this project : Canadian website
    Miss Robertson's website
