Read in March.

This is a reread from my childhood and I loved it all over again. It will be one of the books in my nephew‘s birthday pile.

Soubhiville Definitely an old favorite! 2mo
Reggie That cartoon scared me so much as a kid. The whole owl scene. Oof 2mo
Bookzombie @Reggie It‘s funny I have seen several people talk about the movie scaring them but I don‘t remember that. I am planning to rewatch it. 2mo

4✨I watched the movie as a kid so many times and never read the book. It was pretty much as epic as I remembered. Mrs Frisby has a sick child in their burrow and since her husband had passed away it was up to her to figure out how to protect him since the farmer was going to plow the field where they lived. This brave mama met with a crow, owl, rats, and the humans bent on exterminating them all. Definitely a book worth the Newberry Metal #roll100

marleed Ahh, I just love it when I scroll down to see a post of a book I loved years ago! 7mo

Mrs. Frisby is a widow with 4 small children. She must move her family to their summer quarters immediately, or face almost certain death when the farmer plants the field. To make matters worse, her littlest one is ill with pneumonia. Can she reach the mysterious rats of NIMH in time and request help?? Book 1 of 3.

I never read this as a kid but I‘m glad I did now. The ending really has me twisted - how can we not know?! But the whole story was really well done.

Today on the phone with my mom, she was waiting in the car for grandkid pickup time, when a very noisy crow came to hang out near her. I asked if it was Jeremy (then explained why). She said, “are you Jeremy?” and there was all this very enthusiastic cawing - so apparently it was.

LittlePixels I read this as a kid, and my daughter just finished (and loved) it. It's so cool to be able to experience all my childhood favs again with her! 2y

I picked this up from a free bin at a local charity shop, hence the F. I‘d have bought it at the original 50c price. An enjoyable quick read, even if you‘re no longer a child in body. Mrs Frisby has an adventure along with some enhanced escaped lab rats. I somewhat wish the rats had read some anarchist lit instead of learning they need crops, electricity and their subsistence was theft ;) The plot was familiar but I only vaguely recall the movie.

This book is vastly different from the movie adaptation I grew up on. One is an action-packed adventure with magic, murder plans, and death, while the other is an intriguing story of survival and working together. I really enjoyed the book's version of the story. The movie really made some odd choices with Jenner, bringing in magic, and killing off a major character. #nostalgia #anthropomorphic #MovieAdaptation

I knew this was a book I loved when I was young but did not recall the storyline. From the start, Beatrix and I were enchanted. Why are some books so captivating? The characters are wonderful - gentle, protective Mrs Frisby, wise Nicodemus and brave Justin. Beatrix could not believe it ended - how could there not be a sequel? I recall having the same reaction. But sometimes the appeal is to imagine the myriad of possibilities.

I've been meaning to read this book for a while. It was a childhood favourite of one of my former coworkers. I listened to it on audio and I quite liked it. I think that in my head I had connected Mrs. Frisby with Ms. Frizzle from The Magic School Bus, so I was expecting Mrs. Frisby to be a teacher and I was a bit surprised when she wasn't 😄

What a wonderful book! 💚 I read this because it was my husband's favorite book, and movie, as a kid.

Mrs. Frisby is such a well written heroine in this story. She's resilient and fearless as she protects her family. I loved all the animals, and their adventures.

I loved this book as a child and I continue to see its charm today. I read it yesterday and watched the movie last night with Chaya. I believe a new version has to be made. The movie made Jenner a villain and there was no magic in the book. But, I am one who likes the movie to be different from the book.

Stalactites 👆🏽

You learn something(s) new everyday. 😀

It was not really a floor at all, but only the jagged ends of dead 💀 wood sticking up from below, like stalagmites in a cave...

Mrs_B How do you remember which one is which? I never get it right! 4y
Geenee Stalactites are inverted stalagmites. Stalagmites grow up (from the ground of a cave), and stalactites form from the ceiling 🤷🏽‍♀️ @Mrs_B 4y

#7days7books that left a deep impression on me.

These are a few of the books that I read over and over again when I was young. They opened doors to stories with complex plots and depth. They taught me that there was so much to be discovered between the covers of a book. Brilliant rats from a lab, a dystopian society, and a brilliant whodunnit, each book still stands up to rereading as an adult!

This SF Newbery Award winning novel would be perfect for LC with the 8-12 age group. This book is about a widowed mouse who has to move her family to their summer living quarters immediately or they will die. One of her son's fell ill with pneumonia and cannot be moved. Mrs. Frisby goes to the rats that live on her farm for help because she was told that they have the capabilities to move her home to a safe area. The rats she meets are unlike any

deiacovab normal rats as they come from a place called NIMH. I found a novel study unit to use in conjunction with LC https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Mrs-Frisby-and-the-Rats-of-NIMH-Nove... l would use UDL principle 6.1 Guide appropriate goal-setting to set goals during LC. ESOL strategy 13. Use preview/review activities would work for this novel when doing an author introduction before reading. #ucflae3414sp20 4y
deiacovab I loved the movie for this book growing up but I watched it again after reading the book and found that it‘s much different from the book and I wouldn‘t recommend it as much as the book. But personally I find the book to be an 8/10 :-) 4y
DrSpalding This is classic award-winning science fiction. We always want to say that the book is better than the movie! Using this book as an option for a literature circle is a good move. Maybe you could provide multiple science-fiction options and truly delve into the genre and what it entails using different books. 4y

#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

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. 5y
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. 5y

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.

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. 😴 6y

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.

Started Mrs. Frisby with the kiddos tonight. I've read it so many times but it's a first for them
