About the Author

David Adler was born April 10, 1947. He graduated Queens College in 1968 with a BA in economics and education and licenses to teach mathematics and history. He then worked for nine years as a New York City mathematics teacher. While teaching he studied at New York University and in 1971 was awarded an MBA in marketing. He began work on a PhD in marketing when inspiration struck and he wrote his first book, A LITTLE AT A TIME . Suddenly his focus changed from marketing to writing. In 1973 he married Renee Hamada, a psychologist, and in 1977 their first child, Michael was born. By that time David had written several books. He was granted a child-care leave from teaching and while Renee continued her work, David stayed home, took care of Michael, and wrote in earnest. It was during his first year on leave that he wrote CAM JANSEN AND THE MYSTERY OF THE STOLEN DIAMONDS. David's ANDY RUSSELL series was inspired by another family member and the many adventures the family had with his enthusiasm and his pets.^Karen Ritz has illustrated books for all ages, including "Kate Shelley and the Midnight Express", a Reading Rainbow feature book. She has a degree in children's literature from the University of Minnesota and teaches illustration and workshops on visual literacy. She lives with her husband and two children in St. Paul, Minnesota. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and touching 12 July 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is Simple and touching. Its very simple to read but goes into the depths of her short and in the end devastating life. She had a simple life and she loved it but the last and dark days that she spent in the secret annexe.

further- (beyond this story)

iT turns out that Otto Frank was the only one to survive out of all the secret annex (peter wasn't heard from) everyone else died. If only she had survived the last couple of weeks then she would be free once more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great picture book to introduce the harrowing topic of the Holocaust to young children 13 Aug 2009
By Z Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My interest in the Holocaust began when I was a history major in college and continued through the years of my teaching the subject in school. I was wondering how [and if] I should introduce this harrowing subject to my almost 5 year old. I decided that it is never too early to teach the concept of tolerance and when I came across this book at the museum store in the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C., I realized I had found the perfect book.

This is a picture book, targeted at ages 4-8, but I feel it can be used up to grade 6. The writing is simple, but effectively captures the trials and amazing courage of Anne Frank, who was forced to go into hiding with her family in a Secret Annex to evade capture by the Nazis during the Nazi occupation of Holland in WW II. The text is easy to read, and perfect not only for reading aloud, but also for young readers keen to discover more about this dark period in history. Parents and teachers can utilize this book in many ways to teach the concept of tolerance and also the power of courage, even in young children.

The illustrations effectively capture the essence of Anne Frank's story. I first read The Diary of Anne Frank as a 10-year-old, and still have that dog-eared copy in my home library, having read it many times since. "A Picture Book of Anne Frank" makes Anne's story accessible to younger readers and also for more mature preschoolers. As a side note, I highly recommend a visit to the Holocaust Memorial Museum in D.C. - there is an exhibit titled "Daniel's Story" which traces the poignant journey of a young Jewish boy during the Holocaust. It is perfect for children ages 7 and up [it's not too graphic], and contains many objects of the period which hold visual appeal for both children and adults. As for "A Picture Book of Anne Frank", it's a must-have for those keen to explore the topic with their children.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best book I ever read 9 Feb 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I'm a 6th grader. This book is about Anne Frank when she was a young girl. Anne was born on June 12,1929. She had an older sister named Margot. Her parents names were Edith and Otto Frank. Her family lived in Frankfurt for hundreds of years. She had a peaceful life until the Nazis came. Anne Frank died when she was fifteen years old. Then someone found Anne's Frank diary, which got published in 1947. This is the best book I ever read because I like how it is written, telling the story clearly. I like how she did not die until she was fifteen years old. If I was Anne I don't think I would I have lasted that long because I don't think I could take care of myself that long.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed the book Anne Frank. 23 Feb 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a sixth grader I really enjoyed the book Anne Frank. The story was about Anne Frank,A brave young Jewish girl about 12 years old and her fourting year old sister. She found out at age 14 years old that she had to put a lot of cloths on. She had to hide in the attic for three years so the Nazis would not find them. It took place in Germany where her family lived. She once lived in a house,If she went to school she would be shot. The Nazis burnt all the Jewish books and pictures. A lot of children hid so they would not be shot because the people that hid them or they would be shot with no questions asked. The only person who survived was her dad, and the reason her mom died first, and Anne and her sister died after. I think the person who reads the book would cry or be really interesting in it. The book is based on her family life as a Jew in Germany.

I loved it. The story is told in clear, simple language that makes it easy for children to understand (Crucial in a book geared for a younger crowd) and the illustrations are breathtaking and accurate.

A wonderful introduction to Anne Frank.
