wish float tie know
rope boat try shore
give pole don't push
drag won't oar fun'ny
[Illustration: Two girls standing by fence, one is pulling a small wooden tub with a rope along the path.]
"Kate, I wish we had a boat to put the dolls in. Don't you?"
"I know what we can do. We can get the little tub, and tie a rope to it, and drag it to the pond. This will float with the dolls in it, and we can get a pole to push it from the shore."
"What a funny boat, Kate! A tub for a boat, and a pole for an oar! Won't it upset?"
"We can try it, Nell, and see."
"Well you get the tub, and I will get a pole and a rope. We will put both dolls in the tub, and give them a ride."
