“This gentle introduction to one of the darkest times in modern history... can also provide a starting point for more in-depth study, reading, and discussion.” -School Library Journal

As part of the programming for our Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away. exhibition, please join us in our Reagan Library Museum Store at 1:30 pm for a book signing with the authors of The Cat Who Lived With Anne Frank. This date was specifically chosen to honor Anne Frank, whose birthday is June 12. The book will be available in our Museum Store*, but can also be pre-purchased by visiting clicking here.

Told through the warm lens of a beloved pet, The Cat Who Lived with Anne Frank captures the life of a young girl filled with promise in a way that young readers can appreciate and understand. When Mouschi the cat goes with his boy, Peter, to a secret annex, he meets a girl named Anne. Bright, kind and loving, Anne dreams of freedom and of becoming a writer whose words change the world. But Mouschi, along with Anne and her family and friends, must stay hidden, hoping for the war to end and for a better future.

Told from the perspective of the cat who actually lived with Anne Frank in the famous Amsterdam annex, this poignant book paints a picture of a young girl who wistfully dreams of a better life for herself and her friends, tentatively wonders what mark she might leave on the world, and, above all, adamantly believes in the goodness of people. Accompanied by beautiful, vivid art, this book is a perfect introduction to a serious topic for younger readers, especially at a time when respect and inclusion are so important.
