"Come on, Bunny, let's just have one more teeter-tauter!" cried Sue, dancing around on the grass of the yard. "Just one more!" and she raced over toward a board, put across a sawhorse, swaying up and down as though inviting children to have a seesaw. "We can't teeter-tauter any more, Sue," objected Bunny Brown. "We have to go to the store for mother." "Yes, I know we have to go; but we can go after we've had another seesaw just the same, can't we?" Bunny Brown, who was carrying by the leather handle a black handbag his mother had given him, looked first at his sister and then at the board on the sawhorse, gently moving up and down in the summer breeze. "Come on!" cried Sue again, "and this time she danced off toward the swaying board, singing as she did so: "Teeter-tauter Bread and water, First your son and Then your daughter." Bunny Brown stood still for a moment, looking back toward the house, out of which he and Sue had come a little while before. "Mother told us to go to the store," said Bunny slowly.
