To stay with the Space Theme, Izzie has been learning a little about aliens!
Review from Amazon:
It's a totally zany story with some of the silliest illustrations to appear in many seasons--which is to say that Aliens Love Underpants will be a surefire hit among toddlers and beginning readers. When little aliens fly down to Earth, they don't come to visit because they want to meet the Earthlings. They simply want to steal everybody's underpants! They like them large or small, they like them red or green--and they like them in all other sizes and colors, too. They think that Mom's pink, frilly panties are a perfect place to hide. And Grandpa's woolly long johns make a super-whizzy slide! The text is in verse, the illustrations are big and bright, and kids who open this book will giggle from first page to last.

In addition, she is learning to identify coins and learn their values. I saw a green foam dice with coins attached to it at a local teacher store, which would work perfect with this activity. Of course, at the time, I wasn't sure what to do with it, so I didn't buy it and can't find it anywhere on line! Instead, I just put a handful of change in a small bucket and had Izzie draw out a coin, identity it, say it's value, then dot it on the graph.
