Excerpt: ...was out. But it would take some time for the flood to go down and the roads to dry up. "We'll probably stay here three days," said Mr. Brown. "It looks like a nice place, and we have plenty to eat. We'll stay and let things dry out. Traveling on a muddy, slippery road, with a heavy automobile like this, is not safe. We'll wait a while." Anything suited Bunny and Sue as long as they were seeing or having something new. And when the rain stopped their mother let them put on their rubber boots and wade where the water was not too deep. After wading about awhile, Bunny thought of something to do. "Let's make a raft!" he said to Sue. Pg 124 "Oh, that will be fun!" she cried. Sue knew what a raft was from living near the seashore. Many times she and her brother had made them, and they had often heard stories of sailors coming ashore from wrecks on rafts.

They quickly made a raft by collecting some boards and logs that had come down with the flood, and had caught in the fence corner near which their auto was anchored. Uncle Tad helped them nail the boards together, and then Bunny and Sue floated the raft over into a little rain-water lake in the middle of a field and began shoving it about with long poles. They had ridden up and down one side of the little lake, stopping at places on the "shore," to which they gave the names of sea-coast towns near their home. Pg 125 "Now we'll go across to the other side," said Sue. But when she and Bunny had the raft about in the middle of the "lake," it stuck fast, because the water was not deep enough just there.
