Teddy in Space Excerpt:

It was a cold, windy day on Ahway Island. Takoda teddy bear was grateful that he was able to stay inside with his best friend, Jeff, and help keep him nice and cozy. Takoda and Jeff loved to play inside on chilly days like these. Takoda sat on Jeff’s bed, waiting patiently for Jeff to come in the bedroom, wondering what exactly he and Jeff were going to play today.

Jeff came into the bedroom with his mom. Jeff’s mom glanced around the room then put her hands on her hips. She was always kind and patient but just now she seemed a tiny bit frustrated.

“Jeff, honey,” his mom said, “I know you want to play today but I need you to clean up your room first, please.”
