remember the alamo stanley
The 10th Flat Stanley World Wide Adventures book "Showdown at the Alamo" by Jeff Brown follows Stanley on vacation to Texas with his brother Arthur to see his friends, Carlos and Eduardo. The book not only follows him on adventures in Texas and teaches the reader about Texas, but also shares Stanley's feelings about becoming famous and all that goes with it. This book is written by a different author that the creator of Flat Stanley. The writing is in a simpler form aimed at readers between the ages of 6-10. I read this with by 9 year old and it was at about her reading level as well as her understanding. She liked the book fine. She had done the Flat Stanley thing where you mail him to someone during the school year. So she was already familiar with him. She gave it 3 stars.
