You've heard of Flat Stanley, haven't you? The idea is, students mail Flat Stanley to their friends at other schools. Those students take Flat Stanley somewhere interesting in their home towns, then send letters and photos explaining what Flat Stanley's been doing.
Our neighbor's son, Henry, got a Flat Stanley in the mail, and his Flat Stanley has had all sorts of crazy adventures. He gave a speech at the Embassy, appeared on Chinese television, and even got to meet former SecState Henry Kissinger. I love the photo of Flat Stanley waiting in line to meet Kissinger. And I love that Henry's mom, Ingrid, had the guts to bring Flat Stanley to the meet and greet.
Really, can anyone out there top this Flat Stanley experience?
