"Sandy Eisenberg Sasso's book represents a wonderful and important relationship with the world's biggest and best children's museum, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, which features one of the most unique permanent exhibitions on Anne Frank in the U.S. The Museum is proud of her work, and looks forward to generations of children and families enjoying this important story." --Dr. Jeffrey Patchen, president & CEO, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis

"Rabbi Sasso's book imagining what Anne Frank's tree witnessed will engage the imaginations of generations of children to come while teaching about Anne and Margot Frank and the Holocaust." --Eva Mozes Kor, Holocaust survivor and founder of CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center

"Anne Frank would have turned 85 at the time of this inspiring publication by Sandy Eisenberg Sasso; yet she had her last glimpse of the tree that narrates the story in August 1944. Sasso does a wonderful job of looking through a child's eye, giving the reader a true perspective of what Anne described as the bare chestnut tree, on whose branches little raindrops shined, appearing like silver, in the winter of 1944, six months before she and the other occupants of the Secret Annex in Amsterdam were rounded up by the Gestapo." --Yvonne Simons, Executive Director, The Anne Frank Center USA

"Anne Frank and the Remembering Tree is steeped in the notion of radical empathy. The book concludes with 'the promise of two young girls who loved a tree and the tree who remembered them.' In Sasso's lyrical and moral vision, Anne Frank's beloved chestnut tree serves as witness, persona, and educator. This gentle, powerful book deserves to be a classic work about tolerance for children and educators of all faiths." --Amy Gottlieb, Tikkun Daily
