Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown

My niece Isys was working on a Flat Stanley project for her 2nd grade class. She mailed me an envelope and inside was a letter from her teacher, a letter from her, and Flat Stanley. The letter from her teacher said that her class has been reading a book called Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown and is working on a geography project. My job was to take Flat Stanley to places and take pictures with him and mail him back with postcards after the holidays.

Here is her letter:

Isn’t that cute! Do you remember writing on paper like this? hehe

Anyway, I tried to take Flat Stanley everywhere I went. Jaycee was looking at me funny when I asked him to take a picture of me and Flat Stanley at Bahay Kubo lol. When I asked Arianny to take a picture of me and Flat Stanley at ArcLight Theatre she thought it was cute.

Well here is my letter to Isys:
Dear Isys,

Thank you for sending Flat Stanley to me. He was great company and a good guest.

We got to go to a lot of places. The first place I took him to was one of my favorite Filipino restaurants called Bahay Kubo near downtown Los Angeles, where we ate with my cute friend Joseph (He has the same name as Uncle Kakoo). Since Bahay Kubo didn’t serve macaroni and cheese I gave Flat Stanley a Filipino dish called Pancit. It had noodles and vegetables in it which gave him a lot of nutrients and vitamins.

After we were full from eating all that Filipino food, we went to the Fashion District in downtown Los Angeles. I couldn’t find what I was looking for so the next day I took Flat Stanley and my best friend Drea to the new Americana Mall in Glendale, CA. When Drea and I took a rest from shopping we sat down near this huge fountain and enjoyed a water show.

I also took him to a Mixed Martial Arts fight with me in Long Beach, CA where we took two buses and two trains to get there. I forgot to take pictures with him at the fight, but I got pictures of him on the train.

We also went to a movie with my friend and celebrity UFC ring girl and model, Miss Arianny Celeste. We watched the movie called Slumdog Millionaire at the ArcLight theatres off of Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, CA. I suggest you tell your Mommy and Daddy to go watch that movie. It was really good. Arianny, Flat Stanley, and I really enjoyed it.

Before I knew I had to send Flat Stanley back to Stockton I took him for a treat and we went to Hollywood and Highlands in Hollywood and all the stars that you see on TV have been there. I got pictures with Flat Stanley near the stars of a lot of famous celebrities like Kermit the Frog, Mickey Mouse, Destiny’s Child, Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen, Britney Spears, and Jackie Chan. At the Chinese Theatre we took pictures of the hand prints and foot prints of actors and actresses like Julie Andrews (one of my all time favorite actresses), Johnny Depp, Adam Sandler, Shirley Temple, and Donald Duck!

I hope Flat Stanley enjoyed his stay here with me in Hollywood, CA. Again, thank you for sending him my way.

Be good and stay blessed and always remember Jesus loves you.

See you soon…

Love always,
Auntie Rara

Here are some of the pics I took…

When I came home to Stockton I called my cousin Roger so that he can tell his daughter Isys that I had Flat Stanley. He tossed Isys the phone and I gave her the good news. She screamed YAY and couldn’t wait to have him back. When Roger picked me up we grabbed some pizza and headed over to my Auntie Moneth’s house. Isys didn’t finish her pizza and when Roger told her ‘three more bites’ she said ‘No’. Roger goes “Okay, three more bites and then you can open up Flat Stanley.”, Isys quickly ate the rest of her pizza excited to open up Flat Stanley. 🙂

I had her read my letter out loud so our family can hear her. She read so well I am so proud of her. She is my very first niece and the first to ever call me ‘Auntie Rara’. I can’t believe how big she is and how fast she is growing. I thanked her Mom, Diana for having her send Flat Stanley to me and she said “We knew you would do it for her” Awwwwww I felt soooo good inside cause I’d do anything for her. Later on, I asked Isys how her class liked her Flat Stanley and she said it was the coolest one with the most pictures haha.

I would recommend Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown to any parent. The book gives children an imagination that runs wild and at the same time they get to learn about the geographical parts of our world. 🙂

This was so fun to do. I love being an Auntie Rara! 😉
