Toddler Storytime: Mice Theme

Here's a storytime I did a few weeks ago, on mice!

Books
The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear (Wood)
Mouse Mess (Riley)
Cows in the Kitchen (Crebbin) There isn't a mouse in this book, but I had switched my theme at the last minute and decided to go with this book because I just love it.

Puppet Activity
Mice in a birthday present box

Rhymes

Hickory Dickory Dock
Hickory dickory dock,
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one, and down he ran
Hickory dickory dock.
Additional verses
The clock struck two, the mouse said BOO!
The clock struck three, the mouse said WHEEEE!
The clock struck four, there is no more;
Hickory dickory dock.

Tall as a Tree-- whole body movement, they liked this one a lot!
Tall as a tree
Wide as a house
Thin as a pin
Small as a mouse

Where are the Baby Mice
Where are the baby mice? Squeak, squeak, squeak Make fist and put behind back
I cannot see them. Peek, peek, peek. Shrug shoulders and begin to bring fist out. 
Here they come out of their hole in the wall. Show fist. 
One, two, three, four, five and that's all! Uncurl fingers one at a time.
