I bought a class set of these for use with my P7 class. I have used it several times, and have found it to be a useful introduction to the topic of the Holocaust. This is what some P7 pupils had to say:
"At first we thought that this book was going to be a bit babyish, but we soon realised that it had lots of information about Anne Frank's life and how she lived it. The illustrations were very detailed and realistic, and we were able to have lots of discussions. The cover made us wonder what the yellow stars were for and what the writing meant. It inspired us to read Anne's diary, and was a great introduction to its background. We used the information in the book (along with other sources) to create a timeline of Anne's life, and were also inspired to create our own works of art and pieces of writing. We would recommend this to P5 -P7 pupils and think adults might like it too.
