Anne Frank by Josephine Poole

Synopsis

The life of Anne Frank, from birth until being taken from the hidden attic by the Nazis, is presented in this haunting, meticulously researched picture book. It is a compelling yet easy-to-understand “first” introduction to the Holocaust as witnessed by Anne and her family. The stunningly evocative illustrations by Angela Barrett are worth a thousand words in capturing for young Americans what it must have felt like to be Anne Frank, a spirited child caught in the maelstrom of World War II atrocities. A detailed timeline of important events in Europe and in the Frank family is included.

Key Ideas

  • World War
  • Jewish Culture
  • Illustrations are good
  • Struggling readers- names are difficult
  • Difficult concepts would have to explain
  • Older students
