Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

While The Diary of Anne Frank is an important part of any school curriculum, it is a demanding read for many students. For younger readers, this book provides a solid introduction to Anne’s life and the forces that slowly constrained and then destroyed it. The emphasis is on Anne as a normal girl who was forced to live an abnormal life in hiding because of Nazi rule. Simple writing with comments directed to the reader and photographs generously interspersed throughout the text hold attention; a pronunciation guide and glossary aid comprehension. Sometimes the history gets a bit lost—students might be left wondering about the identity of the Axis countries, for instance—but this is a book about the life and times of one special person and the impact of the diary she kept. To further emphasize this point, reference is made to the diaries kept by other young people during the Holocaust, a possible point for further research. Grades 2-4. --Edie Ching

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this reader for my eight-year-old daughter to serve as an introduction to Anne Frank before she delves into Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. After we both read it however, I must say I'm a little underwhelmed. The content itself is OK as it briefly covers the important events in Anne's short life from her early days in Germany, to her family's move to Holland, and later their hiding in the Secret Annexe, their capture by the Nazis, and the aftermath. As an introduction, it was fine, but I found the book wanting in terms of layout. The book reads like a scrapbook and not a very well-organized one at that. Alongside main information, there are smaller bits of info set off to the sides, and this can be very confusing for a young reader who has no knowledge of the historical context. Understandably, a lot of main events and descriptions are glossed over considering the subject matter, but I wish there was more thought put into describing Anne's vivacious personality and her keen perceptions. Also, the pronunciation guide is not altogether accurate - the pronunciation for Nazis is given as (NOT-sees] when it should be [Naht-sees]. The book looks good upon first glance but as a former history teacher, I found the way information was organized in this book to be rather disjointed and confusing, considering its target audience of young readers. My daughter and I enjoyed A Picture Book of Anne Frank (Picture Book Biography) much more than this lackluster effort.

Of course this book about Anne Frank is not as good as reading her own diary, it does have lots of information for young readers about Anne, Nazi Germany, the Holocaust, and a little bit of information about technology during that time.

this book is a great overview for younger kiddos with little to no knowledge of Anne Frank. It provides good information without too many spooky details.
