Flat Stanley’s Worldwide Adventures #10: Showdown At The Alamo by Josh Greenhut

Meet Flat Stanley, boy adventurer, who, due to an unfortunate incident with a falling bulletin board, had been reduced to only two dimensions. But being 1/2″ thick can have it’s advantages, too!

In the 10th book of the Worldwide Adventures series, Flat Stanley and his friends explore the state of Texas, and have more than a few adventures along the way. . .

This is a very cute book that teaches kids not only geographical and historical facts, but also grammar and the importance of friendships and helping each other. What better way to teach kids than with a funny character like Flat Stanley, who gets into the most ridiculous predicaments due to his unfortunate circumstances.

I chose to give this book only 3.5 stars, however, because I felt there were more than a few places where the author got a little off-track from the story line, where parts of the book just don’t seem to “fit” or seem a little disjointed. I feel like better editing would have solved this problem, or perhaps adding in a few more pages with smoother transitions. Over all, however, this is a great book that young kids would love!

Rating: 3.5 stars

I received a free copy of this book through librarything in exchange for an honest review.
