Review; Anne Frank by Isabel Thomas and Paola Escobar

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of Anne Frank by Isabel Thomas and Paola Escobar through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards, but I haven't published my review until now as I wanted to focus on women's history this month.

Description from Netgalley
Anne Frank was an ordinary girl living in extraordinary times. Forced to go into hiding to escape the Nazis’ persecution of Jews in World War II, Anne kept a diary that would become one of the most famous books in the world.

Meet one of history’s most inspiring figures in this beautifully-illustrated guide to her amazing life.

From artists to aviators and scientists to revolutionaries, Little Guides to Great Lives is a brand new series of small-format guides introducing children to the most inspirational figures from history in a fun, accessible way.

My Thoughts on the Book
This is such a great short illustrated biography suitable for younger school kids, getting to know about Anne Frank. In terms of learning experience and as a teaching tool, I think it will work great, as it humanise WWII in addition to highlighting new/difficult words for young learners, with a glossary in the back. The illustrations themselves are also amazing.
