We had talked about Anne Frank before but she did not know much about her. This book which I found in a "Who was"series at Barnes & Nobel seemed to do that task very easily. She not only got to know about Anne Frank but also about the Holocaust. She was also very impressed with Anne Frank's spunk. The book is simple, with plenty of sketches, concise and gets the point across in a simple manner. It is intended for & and up and I think it is the right book to start on before the child goes on to read Anne Frank's diary
To follow this up BS also read an interview with Miep Gies, the lady who helped Anne's family when they were in hiding and Hanneli, Anne's friend at the Scholastic Web Site
She wants to read the diary now which I guess we will do in 4th grade and also visit the secret annex in Amsterdam

The Ramona series is a big hit with her and also me. I love Ramona and her family and often look upon the Quimby household for parenting wisdom. BS loves both Ramona and Beezus and has read almost every book in this series.
The FoodBS makes a very good Bread Pizza and it is loved by all of us.

4. Microwave for 20-25 seconds until cheese melts.
