I started by making the general shape of the mice- a triangle head, a triangle body, circle eyes, and rope arms & legs.
As you read the story, you build the mice to match the words.
Their tails are long.
Their ears are pink.
Their teeth are white.
And, of course, the cat!
While I made them to go along with the story, you can also build the mice on your own. Since every part is a basic shape, other than the tails and the cat, this book would also be good for a shape story time.
