About this deal

In essence, Sanders finds that O'Brien promotes reading as an empowering tool which is an important lesson that children learn through reading this book. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH is a pleasing book, but I find it mildly frustrating; it might have been something more than it is".

If you like an intelligently written children’s book that provides some food for thought, you could do a lot worse.For me, the narrator makes all of the difference for an audiobook, and Barbara did a great job with this book! Racso and the Rats of NIMH (1986) tells the story of a city rat who runs away to join the new colony, befriending Timothy, while saving the colony from a flood along the way.

I got the book again later in life and this has culminated in reading it aloud to my 5 yr old son (*with only a few slight edits/explanations of the more complicated passages). Between 1989 and 1990, I took some additional college courses in hopes of getting a teaching certificate. Led to good conversations with my twin 10yo granddaughters, with whom I read it on a beach vacation. In 2015, MGM, which had released the 1982 film, acquired the rights to the book to adapt it into a live-action/animated film.I read this book as possibly a 10 year old and have never forgotten the rats, in the story-within-the story in the middle, learning to read the instructions inside their cages that led to their *SPOILER ALERT! not that bad where I want to save them or have one as a pet) Great characters and a mommy mouse that loves her family so much she will put her life in jeopardy to save them.
