Hello followers. I found another great Nightingale resource. This is a great book to give to an elementary school age kid or to read to your littles ones. This book is very detailed but not too detailed that it will lose their attention. This book touches on many important dates for Florence. She was English but her parents were traveling in Italy when her mother gave birth in the city of Florence. She actually did not start practicing nursing until she was thirty-one years old because her parents did not approve of the profession. Hospitals were filthy and in horrible condition. Nurses and patients were often times under the influence of alcohol and so disease prevention and illnesses would be ignored. This book goes on to tell how Florence became a hero but she never considered herself as such. This was a great find with lots of great illustrated pictures. I purchased mine on Amazon and hope you will too. Thanks T-Tech Nurse. . As always be safe folks.
