The Life of Florence Nightingale
Florence Nightingale's parents believed the nursing profession was beneath her, but she felt a calling to help the sick. By the end of her life, Florence had bettered nurses' training around the world and elevated nursing to a noble pursuit for women of all social classes. Including social studies information and a helpful timeline, the biography of Florence Nightingale will engage readers in a world very different from their own. Historical images immerse them in Victorian England and the hospital wards so marked by the good work of the "lady with the lamp."
