ANNE FRANK by Gene Brown

ANNE FRANK

Child of the Holocaust
Age Range: 9 - 12

KIRKUS REVIEW

 In ``The Library of Famous Women'' series, an easily read biography with enough historical data to provide a clear context and many photos of people, places, and events. The bulk of the book covers the period of the diary, which is discussed with some depth and sensitivity, though sidebar quotes from Anne herself shine in comparison to Brown's rather pedestrian style. The beginning and concluding sections, especially, are awkwardly written, with choppy sentences and illogical transitions. An adequate supplementary book. Brief glossary and bibliography; index. (Biography. 9-12)
