looking for books abut kids who are flat, invisible, have magic lamps, go to outer space and celebrate Christmas.

It took having a kid, but I finally really get series books. Oh what an exquisite relief it is to have my son inquire about other "Flat Stanley" books, look them up at the library and discover five other titles!

(He does not like me to choose or even suggest books, you see, but is perfectly willing to have me acquire them.)

It must be strange, the beginning reading relationship. Books are something you love, yet are still a little scared of. And there are so many intimidating choices. And everyone wants you to pick theirs. What a great feeling to find something you like, and then find more of the same.
