Image: Martin is speaking to Amy.
Martin says, “Hey! Let's build a treehouse!”
Amy says, “I bet there's some wood in the shed we can use. Let's ask Liz.”
Image: Martin and Amy enter the shed. Liz is standing inside, next to a wall of tools.
Martin says, “Wow, there sure are a lot of tools. I'll get my wagon to carry the ones we need.”
Image: Martin and Amy walk away from the shed pulling a red wagon. Liz hands Amy some safety glasses.
Liz says, “I'll help with the wood. Don't forget your safety glasses.”
Click says, “Giddyap, Martin!”
Image: Martin reaches into the red wagon. Amy is wearing a tool belt.
Martin says, “Oh boy! I love working with tools!”
Amy says, “This toolbelt keeps everything so organized!”
