Anne Frank Online
http://www.annefrank.com/
GRADE LEVEL: 3-12

B CONTENT:
This site has just about everything related to Anne Frank imagineable, from news, entertainment and merchandise.

B+ AESTHETICS:
The opening page is appropriately black but attractive, the rest of the site is attractive but with white background.

B+ ORGANIZATION:
Most of the site can be accessed from the main page. The site is well organized and has a navigation menu bar at the bottom of each page.

B+ REVIEW:
This is an important bookmark for literature educators who plan for their students to read Anne Frank this year. The "Education" section is not complete but I assume will assist students and teachers in a more complete education of the Anne Frank Story. The section on "The Holocaust" is also incomplete. What IS online is "Anne's Story", a photo scrapbook of Anne's life and family, and "The Diary" which gives information on how and why the diary was created, the publishing history of it, its authenticity, and some poignant paragraphs from it. This site, although it has a little bit to go, is valuable.
