Product description

Florence Nightingale, the famous ‘Lady with the Lamp’, was a truly remarkable woman. The legacy of her work has probably saved hundreds of thousands of lives around the globe. Born in 1820, she rebelled against Victorian conventions and defied her friends and family to take up nursing, then regarded as a job for paupers. Serving in the poorest slums of London and caring for soldiers in the Crimean War, she transformed the face of nursing, forever changing the way that hospitals are run. Inspire children with this short introduction to her life and work, which includes illustrations and a timeline.
