Discover the life of Anne Frank--a story about staying hopeful for kids ages 6 to 9
Anne Frank was a young Jewish girl who lived during World War II, when people like her were killed just for being Jewish. Anne and her family were forced to hide in a tiny, secret space to try and survive, and Anne began keeping a diary to practice her love of writing and pass the time.
In her writing, she described what life was like as a Jewish person during the war. She also wrote about her hopes, dreams, and the future she wanted when she could live a normal life again. Even though she was scared, Anne believed in the goodness of people and never gave up hope that life would get better again.

"In this Anne Frank installment, author Emma Berne does not skip the horrors endured by the Jewish people under Hitler and his Nazi Party, but she does keep it at a level that can be processed by the target audience. Berne most certainly does not mince words as she emphasizes the discrimination and anti-Semitism experienced by a whole nation of people and her Think Tank questions encourage thoughtful application to students' experiences today. It is perfect for use in literature circles in libraries and ELA classrooms." —Melanie J. Dulaney, teacher and librarian
"I love this biography series for new readers, and the bio of Anne Frank is one of the most interesting in the series. It includes a lot of the details of Anne's young, short life that help sustain a reader's interest and includes a lot of history as well. As with other books in the series, it includes color illustrations, timelines, and bite-sized information throughout that make the content manageable." —E. Burton, ESOL teacher
"The Story of Anne Frank is great for elementary readers and has just enough details to tell about her life. I loved that each chapter had thought-provoking questions and a timeline. After the wonderful story, there were some great multiple-choice questions to check to see if the reader comprehended the story. It's a must-have book in any elementary school library or classroom." —Brian Hopkins
