This week in Reading:  This week we are reading a portion of The Diary of Anne Frank. I have discussed the basics with the kids, but I feel that it is up to the parents to decide how much to actually tell the children about this horrible time in history. Please discuss this topic with your kids at the level you feel is appropriate.
