Overview

The 22nd book in the New York Times bestselling series of biographies about heroes tells the story of Anne Frank, the young Jewish girl who documented her life while hiding from the Nazis during World War II. (Cover may vary)

This engaging biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great—the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of an icon in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos. This volume features Anne Frank, whose courage and hope during a time of terror are still an inspiration for people around the world today. While Anne and her family hid in an attic during the Holocaust, she kept a journal about all her hopes and fears and observations. That journal and the story of her life are still read and told today to remember the life of a young girl and warn against the consequences of bigotry.


This friendly, fun biography series inspired the PBS Kids TV show Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum. One great role model at a time, these books encourage kids to dream big.

Included in each book are:  
 • A timeline of key events in the hero’s history  
 • Photos that bring the story more fully to life  
 • Comic-book-style illustrations that are irresistibly adorable   
 • Childhood moments that influenced the hero  
 • Facts that make great conversation-starters   
 • A virtue this person embodies: Anne Frank's unwavering hope is central to this biography 

You’ll want to collect each book in this dynamic, informative series!
