Florence Nightingale

Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara, Kelsey Garrity-Riley

In this book from the highly acclaimed Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the incredible life of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. 


Growing up in an upper-class family, it was expected that Florence would 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 travelled 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.

EThis inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the social reformer’s life.
