This was one of my favorite books growing up. I loved rereading it with my daughter. It‘s such a well written story and I still loved it as an adult. This time around I was struck by Mrs. Frisby‘s bravery. The tasks she tackles to save her children are incredible for the tiny little mouse. 🐁

charl08 This is a much gentler cover than the one I remember growing up. 3w
quirkyreader This is the November read for the “Classic Trash” group on goodreads. 🐭🐀 3w
Avidreader25 @charl08 This is definitely not the cover I grew up with either! 3w
Avidreader25 @quirkyreader 😆 Now I‘m curious about how it falls in that category. 3w
quirkyreader If you read the group description on goodreads, it gives a good description as to what “classic trash” is. I enjoy being in that group. 3w

#AyUpAugust Day 6: A medical expt in this cautionary story became a huge success such that the rats became intelligent enough to manufacture their own escape across #AvenuesAndAlleyways despite the sterile conditions imposed by the scientists and their making certain that there are no feasible means for the rats to free themselves. But where to go when they are evidently not the same rats they used to be. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-32

This cover change was probably due to time between book 1 and 2. Books 2 and 3 were never as popular as book 1.

Whoa.

I was obsessed with The Rats of NIMH as a kid and my sister just found an article about its inspiration. Apparently this guy was doing population experiments with mice, which inspired the book. This is so interesting:

Even though this Newbery winner has been around since the 70s, it‘s still a great SF addition to your library. A story about Mrs. Frisby and her family of field mice who meet another group of mice who are highly intelligent and can do many things humans can, thanks to the NIHM lab. You‘ll love reading this story told through a mouse and so will your class! I would use this as a LC option during SF studies, or an IR. #LAE3414sp19

melindamcmullen84 https://www.prestwickhouse.com/samples/304464.pdf is a well thought out and planned example of a unit study of this great book! UDL 6.1 will be used to help guide appropriate goal-setting during the duration of the reading. ESOL 36 (asking questions with higher level thinking response) is key to making them dig a little deeper in the story. 8mo
DrSpalding I agree this would make an excellent literature circle option. While this one the Newbery many years ago, it would still be a wonderful choice for your classroom. 8mo

I didn‘t take a picture of us reading it or the book I got from the library.

I read this as a child and loved it. I had 2 rather random and specific recollections about the book but otherwise remembered very little. I remembered that Mrs Frisby had to move her children and her home elsewhere to the “Lea” of the stone. I also remember the Shrew (a hysterical neighbor).

I read it out loud to my son and we loved it.

Leniverse This reminds me that I really need to get this book! I've never read it but I love the animated movie. I loved it as a child, and it's still a favourite. 10mo

I never read this as a child, but I LOVED the animated film The Secret of NIMH, based on this book. I sadly didn‘t love the book. I tried print and switched to audio just so I could finish it for the PopSugar challenge. I found it dry and tedious, but that is also probably my mood, so take this review with a grain of salt. 😉

2BR02B As an adult, I still rank The Secret of NIMH among my favorite animated feature films. But I was also not terribly impressed with the book. 😴 1y
DGRachel @2BR02B I really need to watch it again. It‘s been ages, but I bought it on iTunes recently. 1y
LauraBeth Oh I LOVED this in third grade! 😀 Not sure it‘d resonate with me as an adult though. 1y

DGRachel @LauraBeth I remember bailing on it back in middle school, so I‘m not totally surprised that I found it a little dry as an adult. I had hoped that I would love it as much as I love the film, but 🤷🏻‍♀️. I‘m almost scared to rewatch the movie considering how grumpy I‘ve been. I‘d hate to ruin the memories. 1y
Melissa_J I loved this one, but I read it as a child. BTW - are you in the Carolina‘s? I‘ve been monitoring the hurricane news and I have in my head that you live the area. 1y
LauraBeth The film is magical! Probably best to not watch it right now though 😀 1y
DGRachel @Melissa_J Yes. I‘m in Charlotte. It‘s looking like we will miss the worst of the winds, but the 🤬 storm is expected to turn southwest once it makes landfall which means we are going to get a lot more rain than predicted just two days ago. 😭 1y

My favorite book is the tagged one. I re-read this book often. I have so many favs that it was hard to pick, but I love the story, the characters and that it is also a quick read. When I need a little break from heavier reading, I pick this one to revisit my old friends. I‘ll probably need a new copy before too long!

Listened to the audiobook with my son for the @bookriot #readharder challenge for the “children‘s book published before 1980s” category. My son LOVED listening to this in the car on our way to and about. It was our first car audiobook together, but it definitely won‘t be our last. This book is a classic for a reason, and I highly recommend it for children and adults alike. #raisingreaders

A great childhood favorite. Great writing and great story. Very different from the 1990s Don Bluth film. However in my personal opinion I like both. This is a fabulous little story no matter how you tell it. This is great for younger readers or for adults who wish to look back on their childhood.

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh | HSP, Robert C. O'Brien

Mehso-so

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O'Brien and illustrations by Zena Bernstein is SF, that is a great LC. This is about mice, most were part of experiments in the NIMH Lab. Mrs. Frisby lives on the farm but needs to move because of Dragon the Farmer‘s Cat and her son is sick. She learns about her husband who was part of the NIMH, and about how they were injected with stuff to speed up their process. She is caught by the farmer‘s son

HNager well she is poisoning Dragon‘s food. She over hears how men from the NIMH is coming to gather up the mice and bring them back to the lab. She escapes and tells the other mice of the plans. The mice decided to trick the guys from NIMH and go live on their own and be self-sufficient. They all succeed with what they wanted to do. 2y
HNager The EL 30 would be great with all the characters; this encourages use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships. The UDL is 3.1 activate or supply background knowledge that is needed. Lesson Plan and Activates: http://www.brighthubeducation.com/lesson-plans-grades-3-5/66266-rats-of-nimh-tea... #ucflae3414f17 2y
