Anne Frank and the Remembering Tree

In most windows I saw people working and children playing. When the soldiers came, people began covering their windows, so I couldn't see inside anymore. But the tiny attic window of the narrow brick house behind Otto Frank's business offices had no shade. For a long time the rooms were empty. Then one day, Otto's whole family came to live there. They called their new home the Secret Annex. A story of Anne Frank, who loved a tree and the tree who promised never to forget her. For children aged 6-9. Book is co-published by Children's Museum of Indianapolis, chosen by the Anne Frank Center as the first U.S. recipient of a sapling from the tree outside of the Secret Annex window (the tree is the narrator in the book).
Product Details


""The Remembering Tree" is steeped in the notion of radical empathy. The book concludes with "the promise of two young girls who loved a tree and the tree who remembered them." In Sasso's lyrical and moral vision, Anne Frank's beloved chestnut tree serves as witness, persona, and educator. This gentle, powerful book deserves to be a classic work about tolerance for children and educators of all faiths." --Amy Gottlieb, "Tikkun Daily"
