The Diary of Anne Frank is the very first book about the Holocaust that I've read when I was still young. I was already in my adolescence years when I read it and her life story made an impact on me. When I saw that the Little People, Big Dreams has dedicated a children's story book about this remarkable young lady, I immediately grabbed the chance to check it out. I love how this particular book is different from the other book in the series because of how it was vividly illustrated by Sveta Dorosheva. The images of Anne Frank, her family, and Adolf Hitler was drawn in detailed, and looking at them is like seeing their real photos. The story of Anne Frank was also beautifully summarized and narrated by Isabel Sanchez Vegara. This children's storybook is a great introduction to discuss to young readers about what is the Holocaust and what happened during World War II. |

"Little People, Big Dreams" is an incredible best-selling series of books and educational games that explore the lives of outstanding people who have achieved incredible things in their lives, yet each began life as a child with a dream." The newest addition is a simple, inspirational, biography of Anne Frank, the young writer whose diary captured the hearts of the public all around the world. Anne was born into a loving family in Germany. Immersion into WWll caused them to flee to Amsterdam and take refuge in a hidden alcove. Confined into this tiny space Anne took to writing in her diary. Her dream was to one day become a writer. In the midst of all the horror and misery around her she managed to write about the kindness in people and her unrelenting aspiration for peace. Unfortunately this is not a happily-ever-after story for Anne herself but her diary lives on to encourage others and to give them hope when everything around them seems hopeless. Her message resonates deeply with her readers and moves their hearts even to this day. The illustrations are gorgeous and perfect for that time period. I love how they are created in black and white and only her diary is showcased in bright colours to show it's strategic importance to the narrative. The book includes a more in-depth portrait of Anne at the back featuring a biographical timeline, actual photos of her, and more detailed information about her life that will interest older readers ( and adults as well ). The whole series is outstanding and I highly, highly recommend "Anne Frank" and all the other books in the wonderful collection.

New in the Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the incredible life of Anne Frank. The text and illustrations show Anne as a child in Frankfurt until Hitler comes to power when she is four. Her family flees to Holland to start a new life. Unfortunately Hitler and the Nazis move into Holland and the family if forced into hiding. Anne receives a diary from her parents on her 13th birthday where she records the events in her life. The author, Isabel Sanchez Vegara has penned a child friendly biography that shows a young woman striving to achieve her dream to become an author. Her father publishes her diary after her death, thus making her dream come true. This book could be used to teach young children how to write a biography, show that it is important to have a dream and strive to achieve it as well as to introduce the horrors of WWII and the holocaust in a non-gory way. This could impart just enough information to get someone curious to investigate further. A good book for a school library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book to read via netgalley. The rating, ideas and opinions are my own.

A great little book to introduce children to Anne Frank. The illustrator does an amazing job with the illustrations while the author captures the essence of Anne Frank's life yet the mentioning of the war and the Holocaust is done tactfully. In a way, not enough to show what the horror of the WWII did to the Franks and many other Jews but it isn't the focus of the Little People, Big Dreams series anyway. I love how the illustrator retains the bright personality of Anne Frank because every Anne's illustrations in the book have her memorable smile. A must read!
