To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Got this for my Granddaughter, who just finished 2nd grade. She loves to read & asks me for another book when she finishes the one she is reading. She even calls me long distance to read to me. It's a wonderful way to stay connected!!
In book #6, The African Safari Discovery, he was trying to find a flat skull. This discovery will help archeologists study differences and similarities between flat and regular creatures. So, he went onto a boat and all of his family traveled on top of the boat, and Flat Stanley traveled at the bottom. Then, Flat Stanley and his family climbed to the top of a mountain and saw a police station. They met Bisa, someone who helped them get to the top of the mountain. They got on a plane to travel to the skull. The captain tells Flat Stanley and his family to parachute to the place where the skull is. They go to the river and meet people who own a boat, they borrow the boat. Then, they fight about the paddle and the paddle falls into the water...they use Flat Stanley as a paddle! Then, they meet Dr. Livingston , an archeologist. He shows Flat Stanley and his family the skull, and they keep it.

I read this book aloud for my tween sons. Like the other books in the series, it has many illustrations and short chapters -- ideal for struggling readers or short read-aloud sessions.
The whole series is pretty preposterous, and it's part of the fun. But this particular book seemed a little too ridiculous -- like a stewardess telling Stanley it's not safe for him to fly in the seat pocket and instead sending him to the cargo compartment. Like that's safer?
My kids and I agreed that this adventure is not the best of the series.
This is a fun series to read. This is an accelerated reader book. I'm always looking for interesting AR books for my children to read since they have to have so many points every grading period. (AR) reading level 4.1 - AR Pts: 1.0
This book is a spectacular book! You should try it out and see how you like it. Stanley had to go to Africa. He jumped out of the plane because there was an emergency. Then he was gliding down to the ground. Will he be all right? The part that I like was on chapter 4. You should read that part when you get to it. It's so epic!
