I had my fifth grade history classes listen to this during our chapter on WWII and the Holocaust. It helped them understand what it was like for Jews in a way that was honest yet completely appropriate for young minds at a very conservative private school.
Nice overview of Anne's life. Not full of quotes from the diary, but good as a stand alone biography in its own right. If playing to younger or more sensitive children, listen through yourself first. You might prefer to skip the last 2 chapters and just briefly summarise in your own words that although she died, her diary was found and published and became famous worldwide. The Anne Frank House museum has a virtual version of the hiding place on its website which would be an excellent accompaniment to this audio book.
