- A Change is Gonna Come
Change is an important theme in Mrs. Frisby, and a great song can help students understand a concept better by providing them with some context and allowing them to make connections. This song is especially interesting because it provides opportunities to view change through the lens of history.
- Technology, a Catch-22
The times, they are a'changin'. The lightning-fast improvement of modern technology is a theme that cannot be ignored in NIMH. Fahrenheit 451 is another book in which society falls prey to technology, and things get pretty ugly.
