It's just another summer day until Teddy visits the new ice cream shop in town.

He can eat as much ice cream as he'd like, sail an ice cream sea, and even zoom to an ice cream moon. But something very important is missing. What could it be? Dig into this delicious adventure that serves up a gentle lesson in sharing!
