She grew up to be the Lady with the Lamp: Florence Nightingale

by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara

#FlorenceNightingale #NetGalley

Here is another excellent entry in this inspiring series. Readers follow Florence Nightingale from childhood on. She was bright and cared deeply for others. Florence was a girl who grew up to do what we now call following her passion. She did not want to marry but wanted to care for others. Florence’s dream was to become a nurse at a time when nursing was not viewed as respectable. She subsequently did much to change that way of looking at the profession, even being honored by Queen Victoria.

Any child who dreams of being a nurse will be very inspired after reading this title. They can go to the end of the book and also enjoy the timeline and other information that is there, including some photos..

One thing that I learned from this title was that Florence was named for the city in Italy.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.

This title will be published on 12 April 2022

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
