What I liked:
Stanley is back with new adventures as he starts second grade. For those unfamiliar with Flat Stanely, he is a character flattened by a bulletin board that fell off his wall. Flat Stanely is a loveable and unique character that parents will remember and enjoy sharing with their children. This series merges the flat Stanley character with STEM-themed ideas. In this book, Stanely and his best friend will learn what engineering is and how they combine science to help the new class pet be happier. At the end of the book are some fun facts on hamsters for those interested in owning one or learning more about it.
Final Verdict:
Flat Stanley was a classic from when I was little, and I enjoyed sharing his adventures with my son as he grew up. I am glad they continued with this character and are giving the series more to work with by merging it with STEM-focused ideas.
