Flat Stanley in Philadelphia

On Feb. 8, 2009, Flat Stanley visited the Liberty Bell, which was used to call attention to the July 8, 1776 first public reading of the Declaration of Independence and was used as a symbol to a variety of human-rights issues.

Today I had my second outing with Flat Stanley, who was sent to me by the second-grade class of Debbie Reinhardt in Kinnelon, N.J. I first took Stanley to Washington, D.C. for the inauguration of President Obama.

Share our tour below.

Check out a photo slideshow of my time with Stanley in Old City, Philadelphia, which is 93.5 miles from Kinnelon.

I took Flat Stanley to Love Park, Independence Hall, to see the Liberty Bell, the Comcast Center, Philadelphia City Hall, Elfreth’s Alley and other spots.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to show Stanley the famed Philadelphia sports stadiums, eat a cheesesteak, see the U.S. Mint, Carpenter’s Hall, the Madison House and many other sights I love in Philadelphia.

Thanks Mrs. Reinhardt’s class.
