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.

Praise for I am Anne Frank (Ordinary People Change the World)
A New York Times Bestseller
★ "Meltzer extolls Jewish values while gently addressing the escalating persecution of Jews and the horrors of the Holocaust, acknowledging the terror but framing Frank’s story as one of resilience and hope . . . This undeniably somber volume is appropriately lightened by Eliopoulos’ disarming cartoons, which utilize large panels, speech bubbles, and simple yet expressive character designs." —Booklist, starred review
