Once you get beyond the sheer improbability of the plot and the leaps in logic, this is a fun book. Flat Stanley is now in a series in which he travels all over the world seeing and doing interesting things. Sometimes he's mailed from place to place; sometimes he goes as an airplane passenger or other more usual method of transportation. This time he's off to somewhere in Africa, accompanied by his father and brother--unfortunately, they have seats in the passenger compartment while Flat Stanley...more

This book is one of the ONLY middle grade books set in Africa. It is fun and playful -- as always this series makes you laugh! And it makes you think -- about what it means to different, and how every kid just wants their parents to love them for who they are.
The descriptions of Africa and unexpected and not clichéd. Stanley meets different people who are all helpful -- except a certain character. I won't say more, don't want to spoil it.

This is a cute book. Flat Stanley gets to go on an adventure to Africa to. See a flat skull. There are adventures and good messages about self worth and being happy with how he is. Also some good facts about Africa. It's a simple book for new readers of chapter books. Maybe 2-3rd grade level, or end of 1st.
I liked the part when Stanley acted as parachute when he jumped off the plane that was funny too! How did Stanley becoame flat? Why did Stanley's dad use him as a paddle? How did Stanley get stuck in the earth if he was flat? What was animals name thst had the flat scull?

Another choice for book club for 3rd grade- the books were only $1 through Scholastic Book club this month! Flat Stanley, his father, and his brother travel to Africa to look at a flat skull recently discovered there. As a Flat Stanley story, the adventure is most of the fun. Showing students a map of Africa, pointing out Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, and Lake Victoria before they begin the story will be fun. Students will enjoy the mishaps that befall them. The ending is a bit of a twist- at least I d...more

Audience: This would be a great book for students 4th-6th grade because the reading level is a tad more in depth and there are more words on the pages.
Appeal: This book would be a great tie along to a science lesson, possibly dealing with fossils and bones, because the book introduces a "scull" that Stanley finds.

Pre-class book

I was not familiar with this series and was afraid that I would not know all the happenings of Flat Stanley, but that was not the case. From the very beginning of the book, the author tells a brief story of how Stanley became flat and discusses the multiple adventures that he has been on. Great book to get students reading.
This is another book from the Flat Stanley's Series. My students really enjoy these books and the imagination behind them. This book also can be used to teach about the landscape, environment, animals, and culture of Africa. I enjoyed this book, and can see where it would tie in with a unit on Africa.
Audience: 3-4th graders for boys or girls
Appeal: easy to read text. mentions safari animals so would relate to science or geography units. it gives facts in the back of the book.
when stanley goes to africa he wants to see flat skull. he thought seeing it would help his discover the reason why he was flat. he doesn't find out the reason.
The safari seemed fun because they jumped out of a plane.
