Contrary to popular belief, school textbooks are not the same as novels or other books. More often than not, textbooks do not even grant half the benefits of reading – although they are also important as per curriculums, etc. Many people believe that the best way to raise a child that has a high level of intellect is by encouraging them to read more and more books, especially autobiographies.
Unfortunately, reading is at the bottom of the list in today’s world. As a matter of fact, the upcoming generations do not even find reading to be important and would rather watch a movie or an equivalent if they must know the story. Not only has this comportment sparked up predictions of a notable decline in the overall intellectual abilities in young individuals, but it also leads to predictions regarding the downfall of the world in the next few decades.
However, many people are rather aware of this and would go the extra mile to ensure that their offspring do not contribute to the negativity in the world. Many researchers have found that while reading fictional books can really help one to create an active imagination, reading books based on facts such as autobiographies actually help to sharpen intellect and intuition.
Unusual in every single way you can imagine, this autobiography is definitely one that you should read even if you do so just once. Anne Frank was one of the several people who went into hiding in the World War II. This is more of a diary – as stated in the title – but it gave several people a look into the era of the World War II and the author described the Nazi era in detail.
