Ideal for Introducing Anne Frank to a Beginning Reader Audience

Despite having to work within Step Into Reading's language requirements, Jane Kohuth retells Anne Frank's life story in a gorgeous, heartfelt way. I got reacquainted with Anne and wept yet again at her tragic, untimely demise. Know, though, that the heart of the story focuses on her time in the attic, growing as a writer and inspired by the great tree outside her window. It is a perfect way to introduce Anne and her legacy to young readers. I am buying the hardcover edition as a keepsake.
Excellent Balance for the Targeted Age Group

This book strikes an excellent balance between introducing Anne Frank and her life story, without horrifying young readers. We used it as a primer for visiting Amsterdam for a day with my 4yr old niece. The book also gave a layout of the apartment in Amsterdam.
A special story with a profound message

What a simple book with a profound message for both children and adults. The contrasting illustrations highlight the story of Anne's life in the Secret Annex through the backdrop of WWII in Amsterdam. It is certainly inspirational how Anne saw the chestnut tree as hope, while life below was dark and turbulent. Even though Ann and her tree died, Ann's story lives on and so does her special tree through its saplings. They both have special messages for anyone who will listen.

Yes, the book can be read individually and a young age. But what about the development of accurate conclusions? Was Anne Frank the environmentalist this book seems to say or was she more of a creative dreamer trapped in a bad situation in time and space?
