I just wanted to let you know how wonderful this project has been for my grade two daughter. Her Flat Stanley went on a great (political) adventure. His travels included Jasper National Park, flying with the Snowbirds in MooseJaw, SK, and then on to Ottawa where he not only did some great sightseeing, but also met Prime Minister Stephen Harper! (photo to prove it too!) He then went to Kandahar with the National Defense Minister and then to New York with Canada’s Minister of Industry.
My seven year old learned a lot about politics, but even more about how one can achieve anything. Her Flat Stanley was featured in our local paper (St. Albert Gazette) and she was quoted saying “If my Flat Stanley can make it to the Prime Ministers office, then so can I.”
Thanks for starting this valuable, and fun project.
