We want to help create motivated and engaged young readers. This blog is about children's and YA literature (especially New Zealand), literacy research, and ways to get, and keep, kids reading.
Florence Nightingale by Kay Barnham offers an interesting biographical study of Florence Nightingale for younger readers that also clearly and succinctly describes the historical and geographical context and attitudes of her time.
Original photographs and illustrations are used to support a clear bold text that profiles Florence Nightingale’s nursing career and life while also discussing the influences she has had on present day nursing standards, including Nurses Day- 12th May. There’s an easy to follow instructions on ‘how to make a sling’ with step by step photos and first aid tips, as well and a glossary and Index.
Celebrate International Nurses Day on 12th May in appreciation of the contribution Florence Nightingale has made to nursing and health care standards.
