My £4 book haul from the national trust Preloved bookshop ♥️
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. 🐁
#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
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
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.
Who can play along? 😃
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. 😉
We‘re chugging along on our reading streak (Last night was #534) and have been reading Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH for about a week now. The little bookworm was VERY worried about Timothy, and we‘ve just gotten our first view of the Rats!
Thanks for the awesome #Endowarrior21Giveaway!
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!
Very good, I'm definitely interested in checking out the rest of the series and reading more adventures of the rats, Jeremy, Mrs.Frisby and her kids. #bookjarpick
Up next #bookjarpick
Just finished rereading my favorite childhood book. Completes a prompt for the Read Harder Challenge - a children‘s classic published before 1980. Loved revisiting this beloved book again ❤️
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
Thanks for hosting such a great #CinderGiveaway, @MommyOfTwo 🎉👏
One of my favorite books is the tagged one: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. It‘s just one of those that I re-read every other year or so. There are characters that you fall in love with, action, mystery...so good.
#congrats on your achievement!
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.

This morning 13yo asked me to recommend a book for her. This was VERY exciting bc 13yo is not a big reader, and when she does read, she almost always only reads historical fiction. I handed her Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. My husband thinks it‘s too young for her, but I think it‘s perfect for any age!
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
Loved the movie as a kid, but somehow I never managed to read the book. I've got no nitpicks at all on this one. I genuinely enjoyed the whole thing, cover to cover (metaphorically speaking, since I listened to the audiobook).
#SeptemBowie so I tried to think outside the box today...my son loved this tale of a family of mice who live #underground and need to find a new home. Leave it to some super intelligent rats to help Mrs. Frisby.
Anyone remember the first book they bought with their pocket money? This is mine, 'The Secret of Nimh' by Robert C. O'Brien. This is hands down my absolute favourite book in the whole entire world, its falling apart and I keep it in bubblewrap because its so fragile. But I still love 🐭😍📚

Just finished this (our latest chapter-a-night bedtime book) yesterday - I‘m reminded why I counted it among my faves as a kid! Both of my boys loved it, too. 💙🐀💙

#FunFridayPhoto time! I've actually read several books with animals on the cover. But this is one of my favorite books of all time. I read Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH when I was in elementary school and remember being so completely dazzled that someone had created this whole animal world in this book. It was exciting and mysterious and so, so clever. I've been hooked on fiction ever since. @Liberty
I watched the movie as a child, but the book (as usual) was so much better. I just read it for the first time and I'm in love.
