Demi’s book on Florence Nightingale informs about the entire life of the woman who advocated for cleaner healthcare. Nightingale, the mother of modern nursing, was known as the Lady of the Lamp during her time working in army camps. From her childhood and schooling, the books tells her about her life. Her later life and interventions in communities through meeting with dignitaries tells of her lasting impact on the nursing profession. A higher level of reading for children, yet informative and of immense value. Watercolor and mixed media clearly present the book’s clinical mood. Includes Timeline and Farther Reading.

Highly useful in the classroom. It could be used to instruct English, science, history, or social studies. It can be read aloud or used to help tutor a child. The book is dense with description and information.

Highly Recommended Rebekkah Reisner, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
