I am Anne Frank (Ordinary People Change the World)
I Am Anne Frank is an educational book about Anne Frank’s life during World War II. Anne and her family had to go in hiding because they were Jewish. Jewish people were forbidden to do many things like ride their bikes, go swimming, go to the movies, or go to the library because the Nazis were trying to take over the world. When Anne’s sister, Margot, was called to the concentration camps, Anne and her family hid. They hid in the Secret Annex of their father’s office. It was a very small space for their family of four as well as four others that they decided to help. Anne had received a dairy for her birthday, and while in hiding, she wrote in her diary every day. Anne Frank’s diary was discovered after she died and was published. Anne Frank’s story tells us about hope.
I didn’t know about Anne Frank and her life until I read this book. Like the other books in the Ordinary People Change the World series, I learned a lot about these famous people in history. Anyone who has enjoyed the other books in the series will like this book about Anne Frank.
