What are some books that made a deep impact on you as a child? . (Thank you to @pantheonbooks for gifting me this graphic novel) During the nights of November 9 and 10, 1938, synagogues across Germany were set on fire and Jewish-owned shops were smashed by Nazis. Because of all the glass in the streets, they call this night Kristallnacht. I did not realize that these anniversaries were last week, but as I was looking for some Anne Frank information to post with this graphic novel I ran into these dates and realized they were just a few days ago. . Anne's journals give me a lot of mixed up feelings. I remember reading Anne Franks Diaries in the fourth grade, and as an avid journal keeper already at that age, I was horrified. Horrified at the thought of my journals being found and published. At that age my first thought was about her privacy instead of what she was actually going through. That came next as we read her journal entries and with the prompting questions from my teacher. And that peek into her life really made a deep impact on me to understand what that time was like, how blessed I am to have never endured hate, and resolve that I would be the kind of person who helped those in need. . I love graphic novels, especially for children who might be reluctant readers. And this one is excellently and beautifully done. (I'll show pictures of the inside illustrations in my stories today) But I love the way illustrator David Polonsky illustrates Anne’s feelings and takes the metaphors in the diary and fully brings them to life. I hope to introduce my daughter to Anne's story in a few more years, and maybe this graphic novel will be one way to do it. #annefrank #annefranksdiary #thediaryofayounggirl #arifolman #davidpolonsky #graphicnovel
