All About Anne by Anne Frank House

cover139133-mediumAll About Anne by Anne Frank House is a middle grade book about the life and death of Anne Frank, compiled by The Anne Frank House is an vitally important book that should be read by everyone, regardless of age.  It explains in great detail, yet in child language, how the Frank family hid, why they hid and how this whole horrible chapter in our history came about. This book is a well written and a thoroughly researched book, that puts Anne Frank’s diary in focus, and in context.

Anne’s life and death are presented in a simple, yet fact filled eighty-page book that takes readers beyond Anne’s diary to include her life from birth to death with many photographs. The book includes important historical facts about the Holocaust, including America’s refusal of refugees during that period. Using photographs and drawings, it depicts the city where the Franks hid, Mr. Frank’s office and how the true heroes came daily with supplies to help hide the family from Nazis.

I highly recommend this book for children to learn about holocaust and the impact it had on innocent lives.

I received this e-ARC from Second Story Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
