Teacher read us
‘Flat Stanley’, by Jeff Brown.
It is about a boy who was
but not hurt.
Now he is as flat as a pancake.
His parents used send him
in a large brown envelope on his holidays.
This was cheaper than going by airplane.
We sent our own Flat Stanleys
for a holiday to kind friends and relatives
in lots of different places.
We found that whether Stanley
traveled all the way to Ukraine
or took a short spin to the home of a friend,
Stanley had GREAT fun and many adventures.
Our Flat Stanleys visited
Greystones, Bray and Delgany
Wookey Hole in Wells,
Milton Keynes and London
Italy and the Ukraine
Stanley went to Brady’s of Shankill
to watch rugby on the television
and he played golf.
He went to Sasha’s and Charlie’s wedding.
He met a witch in the caves in Wookey Hole.
He went sailing in a paper boat in Milton Keynes.
He abseiled off the Tower of London,
spun round the London Eye
and had breakfast with Gordon Brown.
He had a marvelous holiday with Lily in Milan.
We learned a lot about fashion, bridges
and how cement is made in the Ukraine.
Thank you to all the kind people
who helped us with our Flat Stanley project.
Thank you for taking the time to send Stanley
and an account of his adventures back to us.
It was fun and very interesting.
