Timmy is very excited! To thank him for helping out with the dishes, his grandma has given him some money to buy something from the ice cream man when he comes around.
But there's just one problem. He doesn't know whether he has enough money--or even how much money he has. Timmy takes his coins to his mom to see whether she can help. Mom knows that the ice cream man charges one dollar, and she teaches Timmy how much each coin is worth. Using careful counting, Timmy soon knows exactly how much money he has. And now he'll be ready when the ice cream man arrives!
