It was appropriate for Mr. Frank to say “she puts me to shame” because Anne always sees the good in everyone. Even though this terrible time is going on, with one terrible guy ruining it all, she still saw good. She knew most people meant well, and she viewed those people more than the others. Towards the end of the story you discover that Anne starts to mature. She gets along more with the other members in hiding. Compared to when she was more of a prankster and liked to fool around. To me she's just a happy person who appreciates life. Anne stands up for herself and says that she's a kid and will do kids stuff. It was right for Mr. Frank to say that because he realizes not even he has a heart as big as Anne’s.
