and you could only take five things with you, what would you take?
Caroline has an Encylopedia, magnifying glass, blanket, rope and a raincoat/windbreaker.
Libby would bring a Big Book of Questions and Answers, yarn (which was to symbolize rope), binoculars, notepad and pencils.
Joseph would take a shovel, binoculars (which double as a magnifying glass), whistle (also has a compass, a flint and a waterproof cylinder), plant guide and needle nosed pliers. The needle nosed pliers are because one time when he went camping he fell out of a tree and landed in a thicket of thorns. Daddy rescued him using needle nosed pliers to cut through the branches. So they are a MUST when you are stranded.Moving Beyond the Page.
