She Persisted: Florence Nightingale

When Florence Nightingale decided as a teenager that she wanted to become a nurse, her parents tried to talk her out of it, claiming that it wasn't a suitable profession for a woman. But she persisted in her career and went on to save countless lives of patients, especially of soldiers — both through direct care and also through identifying the benefits of improving cleanliness and diet in hospitals. Known as "The Lady with the Lamp," she is widely considered to be the founder of modern nursing.

In this chapter book biography by critically acclaimed author Shelli R. Johannes, inspired by the best-selling She Persisted series, readers learn about the amazing life of Florence Nightingale--and how she persisted. With short chapters, spot black-and-white illustrations throughout, and suggestions for ways that young readers can follow Nightingale's footsteps, this is the perfect book for the next generation of medical heroes!
