Anne Frank’s life story is told by answering the most frequently asked questions posed by children and young people visiting the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam. Text, detailed photographs and beautiful illustrations combine to give the fullest picture of Anne’s life, her diary, and the Secret Annex. Full of information about Anne’s life, World War II, and the Holocaust, the book provides both an overview of the history as well as intimate insights into the life of the young Anne Frank.

"All About Anne essentially functions as a small museum in book form, walking young readers through Anne’s life as well as through the Secret Annex."
