Book Description

March 1 2005 Childhood of World Figures
In 1933, at the age of four, Anne Frank and her family fled from the Nazis in Germany and sought safe haven in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In 1940, when the Germans invaded the Netherlands, the Frank family once again feared for their lives. Like tens of thousands of Dutch Jews, the Franks went into hiding. They lived in several hidden rooms -- known as the "Secret Annex" -- above Mr. Frank's office building. It was there that Anne wrote her now-famous diary.
The Franks lived in hiding for two years before they were discovered and sent to Auschwitz, the most well-known and feared concentration camp. Anne Frank gave a human face to the victims of the Holocaust and a courageous voice to all those who were silenced.
Though Anne Frank only lived to the age of fifteen, her inspirational childhood is perhaps the best known in history.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-4–Details of Anne Frank's life are augmented with fictionalized dialogue and descriptions written in novel format. Is this biography or historical fiction based on real events? It's impossible to tell. While easier to read than the original diary, the fabrication is bothersome, particularly for a historical figure so renowned for her own words. For a better, easier-to-read account of Anne Frank's life and tragic demise, Johanna Hurwitz's Anne Frank: Life in Hiding (Jewish Pubn. Society, 1988) or Rachel A. Koestler-Grack's The Story of Anne Frank (Chelsea House, 2003) are better choices.–Rita Soltan, Oakland University, Rochester, MI

5.0 out of 5 stars Anne Frank March 7 2006
By John
I really enjoy the book Anne Frank by: Ruth Ashby.Anne Frank is a Jewish girl that lives in Amsterdam with her parents. From the book I learned a lot about Anne Frank, Hitler and the Holocaust. In 1940, when the Germans invaded the Netherlands. The Franks went into hiding, Anne calls the room they hid in the ". The Secret Annex."  " The Secret Annex" is a secret place above Anne's fathers office where they and a few of their friends go into hiding. If you want to know what happens to Anne or if they will find them in hiding ? you should read this book. I recommend this book to kids 10 and up because it is a very sad book, and I don't think kids under 10 should read it. I also recommend it to kids who like historical books.

4.0 out of 5 stars good overview of Anne's life Sept. 13 2009
By William Younglove - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While Anne Frank: Young Diarist breaks no new ground, the short overview of Anne's life is accurate and quite comprehensive. There are just a few revelations, even for those steeped in Anne Frank lore. The book should not supplant (chiefly) middle school readers of Anne's diary itself, but the overview would be a good recap for, say, tenth graders whose view of Anne and her times is a bit fuzzy.

Reading about Anne Frank is always bittersweet since we know the end of the story. This book filled in some gaps from her childhood that other books had not.
