Poppins Book Nook- Traveling With Stanley


The theme for the month of June for the Poppins Book Nook was travel/transportation.  It took me a while to figure out what we could do to go along with that theme.  One day while I was at Barnes and Noble I looked at some Flat Stanley books and knew that would be the perfect book for the theme.

We have never read any of the Flat Stanley books, so we picked “Flat Stanley His Original Adventure” by Jeff Brown.  We also bought one of the chapter books to read too.  After we read the book, Hailey made her own Flat Stanley.

I found a template of Flat Stanley on Commerce Library Kids and printed it out for Hailey to color.

When she finished coloring him, I went on facebook with this picture and asked our friends and family if Stanley could come and visit them.  Thanks to so many people offering to help us, Stanley has a very busy summer lined up 🙂

His first adventure was with us, we had a wedding to attend.  Hailey and Stanley were all ready to go.

If you look closely you can see Stanley behind the seat belt, watching a movie with Hailey.

Stanley was very good at the reception- he sat in the chair and watched all the people 🙂

After the wedding Stanley left on his next adventure.  Hailey’s Aunt Ellie took him to visit Delaware and Washington DC.

Stanley went to physical therapy with Aunt Ellie.  It looks like he had fun and I’m sure he learned a lot 🙂

Stanley had quite the adventure in Washington DC and was able to see the Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin.

He also stopped for a visit at the Lincoln Memorial.

Stanley also went on a bike ride (and wore his helmet, of course!) to visit the University of Delaware.
He sure has been busy with Aunt Ellie, and looks like he has really enjoyed himself!

I ordered a map of the United States for us to use to mark off the different places that Stanley visits.  We haven’t received it yet, but when we get it we will add the fun places that Stanley has gone.

Stanley is headed off to Utah next and has a lot of fun filled adventures coming up this summer, so make sure you stop back to see what he’s up to.

    Our Flat Stanley got to go some of the same places! It would have been hilarious if they had found each other!
