An evocative and accessible picture book about Anne Frank and how she found her voice in a world determined to silence her.

All her life, Anne Frank wanted to be heard.Really, truly heard.Linda Elovitz Marshall introduces readers to the story of Anne Frank in this powerful book about family, war, and the importance of finding your voice.During her two years in hiding from the Nazis, Anne Frank poured her soul into a red plaid diary named Kitty. She wrote honestly of the reality of Nazi occupation, of daily life in the annex, and of her longing to be heard. More than anything, Anne spoke the truth, and her words have echoed throughout history. Gorgeous prose and striking art deliver Anne's ever-relevant story with poignancy and grace, while robust back matter — including biographical information, an author's note, and a timeline — makes this the perfect book for history curriculums.
