Anne Frank's life story is told by answering the most frequently asked questions posed by young people visiting the Anne Frank House Museum in Amsterdam. Text, detailed photographs and beautiful illustrations combine to give the fullest picture of Anne's life, her diary and the Secret Annex. The book provides both an overview of the history of World War II and the Holocaust as well as intimate insights into the life of Anne Frank.

Association of Jewish Libraries
"All About Anne essentially functions as a small museum in book form, walking young readers through Anne's life as well as through the Secret Annex."
Jewish Book Council
"(A)n excellent companion to the diary itself, either as an introduction or as a follow-up to fill in historical detail; either way, the two make an excellent pairing…highly recommended."
Kirkus Reviews
"Essential reading about Anne and her times."
