Really cute story! It's always nice to see picture books featuring African American children that are everyday sort of tales!

Math/measurement:
Make homemade Moon Sand
http://theimaginationtree.com/2013/06/home-made-moon-sand-recipe.html

4 cups play sand
2 cup corn flour (corn starch in US)
1 cup water
2 tbsp coloured powder paint (we divided our plain mix into two so we could make both pink and purple)
huge sprinkling of glitter

Method:

Mix the sand and cornflour in a large bowl until combined. Then tip in the water in increments, mixing it in as you go along. By the end it should be well combined and the consistency is like a crumbly pastry mix. If it doesn’t hold together when formed in a ball then add a tiny bit more water until it feels right. It should not be wet, but feel slightly damp.
When this is achieved then stir through the colours, using as many as you like. You will need to use your fingers to thoroughly mix the colours, like making breadcrumbs or pastry. This stage is fantastic for developing fine motor skills!
