Flat Stanley was out in the yard again today. He loves springtime and all of the beautiful flowers. More flowers were blooming all over the yard, it was so pretty. He walked up the long driveway, kicking up gravel as he stepped.
He cut across the front lawn toward the rock wall by the street that is lined with gigantic maple trees.
The tallest maple tree looked like it would be fun to climb. Flat Stanley began placing his feet in the deep crevices of the bark and made his way up higher and higher.
When he got up as high as the telephone poles, he had reached large holes in the tree.
Flat Stanley looked inside thinking that maybe there would be a bird’s nest in there, but when he got really close, there was a swooshing sound and a vibration that pulled him in. He felt a spinning sensation and closed his eyes for a second.
When he opened them again, he was in a magical land of gnomes. He felt like a giant as he circled around a mushroom and watched the friendly gnomes sing and dance in the distance.
Flat Stanley walked up to them with his usual big smile on his face. His feet started moving to the beat and the gnomes welcomed him into their circle. Flat Stanley picked up on the chorus and joined in.
“We dance, we dance, circling around we dance. Come fly over the rainbow of love as we dance, we dance, circling around we dance.”
Flat Stanley let his legs fly high and clapped under his knees just like the gnomes. Their laughs were really high and cute. Flat Stanley was having fun.
At the end of the song, a rainbow arched down and like a bridge all of the gnomes began to walk up the lines of green, red, yellow and blue. Flat Stanley joined in the line and when he reached the top of the rainbow, Swoooosh!
Flat Stanley was swooshed back to the tree in Nana and Papa’s yard.
“Wow! That was fun!” Flat Stanley exclaimed as he ran back across the yard and up the driveway. He has a great imagination. His smile was wide and eyes were bright as he went inside for lunch.
I hope your smile is wide too! Enjoy your day and please subscribe, so that Nana can send you an email when a new Flat Stanley Adventure is posted.
