This is a fantastic book for independent young readers, filled with informative facts about Florence Nightingale. Students will learn so much about this remarkable woman, her contributions to health care, and what field hospitals were like before the mid-1800s. This book is perfect for additional elementary history curriculum, or for a nightly reading assignment. I enjoyed the layout very much and look forward to reading additional books in this collection with my daughter.
Another nice, basic one. Much shorter than the other Florence Nightingale we read--but this one mentioned that she felt called by God, whereas the other one mentioned nothing like that. So now I find myself wondering and wanting to know more. All from reading kiddo nonfiction! My daughter has now sated herself on Florence Nightingale (we've read three short biographies), but now I have a bunch checked out from the library for me.

I learned that Florence Nightingale suffered because she thought life should be more than fun that her rich family enjoyed. She chose to help others by becoming a nurse despite the fact that her mother and sister disapproved of her actions. So did her father. Florence listened to her heart. Florence was able to finally stop working after she improved the hospital in Turkey during the Crimean War.

I learned that Florence Nightingale worked to help others but did not start until she was thirty-three years old. She is an inspirational person.
