Little People, Big Dreams is a wonderful series that has encouraged young girls to dream of bright futures. The series has bravely taken Anne Frank as one of its subjects. This is a tough one because, of course, Anne does not live to be an adult who can achieve her dreams. Emphasis is placed on her diary and her wish to be a published author, something that did happen.
This entry is more somber; the illustrations are in black and white with the exception of the diary, which appears in color. The basics of Anne’s story are told in an honest way. The story of Anne is a tough one for children to learn but such an important one. This book is a good way to begin the difficult conversation.
