Anne Frank was 13 years old when she and her family went into hiding in a secret room in Amsterdam in order to escape the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. For two years they hid and Anne wrote her diary, providing us with a moving account of a Jewish life in hiding. "Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.

It wasn't the most exciting book and a little boring at times. But its a diary, she didn't intend for it to be a book. That only thing that gets to me is how there was so much going on, and she doesn't write about it until she has too. But at the end of the book, I felt really happy for her. Since in one of her diary pages she talks about how she wants to live her life and be know for something. And how she wants to live on after shes gone. And now she is:)

Throughout the reading of this diary, I kept wishing the world could have known Anne Frank as the gifted writer she was already becoming. Whether she felt fear, hope, love, exasperation or flashes of joy, she made me feel them. My children read this diary in high school. I am grateful to have read it as an older adult and suggest it is worth a re-read every few years. It shows the indomitability of the human spirit.

a tribute to Anne Frank
I reread Anne Frank's book over and over again. I don't know of any testimony of the war and the dilemma of the Jewish people that is so fresh and honest as this one. Not only is she becoming a woman but she is also becoming a writer and it is a tragedy that she was lost to the world so young. I suppose that she died about the time she would be doing her bat mizvah. I only have this to say. We all have learned a tremendous amount about how terror works it's deadly deeds and for Anne to still be in a positive mood at the end of her life is a testimony to virtue. Together with Simon Wiesenthal and Victor Frankl she belongs to a group of Jewish Holocaust writers that will be here forever. 100 years from now we will still be looking into Anne Frank's life and marveling at her candor.
