Our final book was Cat & Mouse by Tomek Bogacki, about a small mouse and a young cat who become friends.
Children made this simple paper finger puppet with a string tail, then used it when we recited this poem:
Here's a little mousie
Peeking through a hole.
(Poke index finger of one hand through fist of the other hand.)
Peek to the left. (Wiggle finger to the left.)
Peek to the right. (Wiggle finger to the right.)
Pull your head back in, (Pull finger into fist.)
There's a cat in sight!
