This summer I read (technically "re-read") Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. I know I read or skimmed parts, but I really gained an appreciation for this book this summer. Perhaps it is the addition of age. Perhaps it was knowing I am going to add this text to the curriculum. No need for a summary of this book.
This book makes me want to read the books that have strong ties with Anne Frank--including stories by Miep Gies (BOOK) who helped the Franks hide. I cannot wait to see where the class reading of this novel leads.
