" This is a great illustrated book for young readers to learn about Anne Frank and World War II. I love that it has a glossary where the reader can learn more about terms discussed, and it encourages further readings such as Anne Frank's diary. " said.

" This is a wonderful balance between a picture book biography meant for a very young reader and a middle-grade biography. the text is wonderfully detailed, while remaining age-appropriate, and the illustrations work beautifully.Thanks to #netgalley for providing me a copy to review. " said.

" This is a child’s book, but the simplicity of the text and illustrations told Anne’s story as clearly and sadly as I’ve ever heard it. " said.

"Little Guides to Great Lives is an excellent series for younger children. I’d say 2nd grade through 4th. The books are illustrated biographies of some of the most inspirational figures in history.
The one granted to me by Lawrence King Publishing was about the life of Ann Frank. While she is well known for who she was and the diary she wrote I did come away with information I had either forgotten or never known. I feel children will immediately take to the books where text is accompanied with lovely illustrations. I escpecially liked the diagram of the secret annex. It was actually bigger than I had imagined, but since so many people were hidden there, I’m sure it was quite cramped.
The text portrays the struggles of Ann and her family as well as their stamina and bravery. The timeline at the end of the book puts her whole life in perspective.
I feel this series will be a huge welcomed addition to libraries and classrooms for beginning researchers.

"Although short, Anne Frank: Little Guides to Great Lives is full of information, beautiful illustrations, and helpful maps. I have taught the dramatized version of The Diary of Anne Frank for four years now, and even I learned something new from this book. I am excited for its full publication so that I can share it with my students and incorporate it into my curriculum. The maps and simple explanations of often difficult subject matter will help my lower-level readers understand the content of the play and hopefully inspire my students further to read Anne's diary for themselves and to see others by our similarities instead of our differences.
I look forward to reading more books in this series on Little Guides to Great Lives.

*Thank you, NetGalley for an eBook advanced reader's copy of this title. I was provided with this title prior to publication in exchange for an honest review.

" Wonderfully accessible for children and beautifully illustrated. The book uses simple language which manages to successfully condense the story of Anne's life without losing any of the impact of her experience, or the political and socio-economic climate of the time. " said.

"{My thoughts} – I remember reading The Diary of Anne Frank when I was in the 8th grade. At the school I had attended it was required reading. I strongly believe that every child should have to read it.

This book is based off that book, but it is a much more simplified version. It is in the form of a graphic novel. The illustrations are incredible. I can’t help but admire how nice they flow with the words within the pages of this book.

The text is simple enough that most young children will understand it. If they run across come words they don’t know there is a glossary in the back where they can look up the meaning of those words. This is extremely helpful for children that haven’t yet learned what some things are. It gives them the opportunity to look them up without having to ask an adult, however, I think asking helps to lead to more discussion.

There is also an index in the back of the book that can help direct children to certain pages of the book in which they may have more of an interest.

I already knew most of the things that had been mentioned in the book. I didn’t however know that Anne wasn’t her given name but a nickname. I didn’t know her given name was Annelise. Such a pretty name for such a pretty girl. She had hopes and dreams like so many other children. She achieved her dream of becoming a writer with the help of her father. I think she would have loved knowing that her words have impacted the world in such a strong and positive way.

This is a wonderfully well done book and I think that every child that isn’t old enough to read the actual diary, should read this book. There is so much within the pages that they can learn, and of course so many things that they can ask questions about as well.
" said.

" I really enjoyed Anne Frank: Little Guide to Great Lives by Isabel Tomas and illustrated by Paola Escobar. The information in the book is simple but complete, and the illustrations, are fantastic. Thank you so much #netgalley for allowing me to read this rendition of #annefrank. 5 stars! " said.
