Flat Stanley......from Iowa to California!

Flat Stanley went on an amazing adventure with Blake's cousins!  And guess what??!!!  They even wrote a storybook along the way!  Flat Stanley saw some amazing things......he wanted to take a lot of risks too!  In the storybook, he noticed a fountain at Stanford University that had red water in it and it looked like Kool-aid!  He said he wanted to jump in....."but he didn't".  When in San Francisco, he visited Alcatraz!  He said he wanted to swim out to the prison but there were sharks in the water....."so he didn't".  Just like a Robert Munsch book, Blake's cousins repeat an important part of the story with each new page and each new adventure.  At the end of the story though, when he made it to California for Thanksgiving dinner, Flat Stanley noticed a delicious pumpkin pie!  He wanted to dive right in and eat it....."so he did!!!"  What an awesome idea for a Flat Stanley project!  Blake's Flat Stanley had an amazing adventure AND Blake now has quite a keepsake!  A big thank you goes out to Blake's family for creating this book! 

Flat Stanley visited cool places like Bubba Gump's Shrimp Co., The Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood Blvd. and the haunted Hearst Castle!  Very cool indeed!
