My name is Robinson. I and Mrs. Robinson were on a ship at sea with our four sons. We were going to a new land, and we were happy. One night, the rain fell hard. The wind blew hard. The water pushed our ship too fast. We were afraid. The men on our ship left in small boats. We were alone. The ship hit a big rock and could not move. Now we felt very afraid. The animals on the ship were afraid. As night fell, and the wind still blew. We could not sleep. When morning came, we could see through the rain that our ship had a big crack in its side. Water was slowly coming into the ship.
