Artist of the Week: Flat Stanley
But this is not about John or even dogs in general, it's about Nate's Flat Stanley.
A while back Nate had a big Flat Stanley project for school. We sent off his Stanley along with an instruction sheet to my friend Paul in Australia. A few weeks later Stanley returned with a huge amount of pictures and all sorts of neat stuff. Then it was up to Nate to pull the whole thing together in a sort of scrap book.
Nate did the bulk of the work with just a little help from me on the captions. The entries with a red border are excerpts from the diary of Stanley's adventures in Australia. I think it came out rather well. His final grade was a 97 out of 100 points. The only thing that held him back was that the teacher wanted a bit more research included in the captions. Nate did a little, but not quite enough.
I loved the whole thing and I can't thank my friends enough for what they did.
