Florence Nightingale (Little People, Big Dreams)

Growing up in an upper-class family, Florence Nightingale was expected to find a husband and live a life of luxury — but that kind of life wasn’t for her. Her calling was caring for the sick and the poor, so she followed her passion with her whole heart and trained to be a nurse. When war broke out, Florence traveled to nurse wounded soldiers but found that the hospitals were so dirty that they were making people ill! This experience inspired her to lead a healthcare revolution, and she became the mother of modern nursing, introducing care practices still followed today.

In this book from the Little People, BIG DREAMS series, young readers can learn all about how Nightingale used scientific principles to turn nursing into a profession given the respect it deserved! Stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of this science and nursing pioneer's life, provide plenty of interest for young readers. It's sure to inspire kids to dream their own big dreams!
