There were many things that I liked about this book:
The illustrations that are bright and vibrant
The diversity in the illustrations with people of different races and also showing a male nurse. Often children think that only females can be nurses.
The descriptions of some of the jobs that a nurse might do and the different patients that they may help.
My one niggle: The nurses are all clearly taking orders from the doctors. Of course this is what happens but, in the real world, I think that nurses use their voice and expertise more. Some of what is described sounds like jobs that a nurse’s aid might do.
Still, I recommend this title overall. It demystifies the nurse’s work and what it is like to be in the hospital. It may inspire some to become nurses in the future.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
