A Picture Book of Florenc. has been added to your Cart. Some of the incidents in Nightingale's life are poorly explained, without giving the necessary historical background for children to understand the events fully.

A short, picture book biography of Florence Nightingale, a woman who defied cultural conventions to follow God's calling (a term actually used in the book) to be a nurse and helped revolutionize medical care. This book does a satisfactory job of relating the highlights of Florence Nightingale's life and work. The illustrations are attractive enough for kids, though the specific copy I read is looking a little aged.

She revolutionized the nursing profession.
  • I read this book to my first grade class on Nurse's Day this year. We then compared Florence Nightingale to Clara Barton. There aren't many children's books written on this historical figure. You can always count on the author, David Adler, to deliver the best biographies for kids:-)

  • This is a great book. Very informative, but not so much information that it overwhelms kids. I read this book to my 2nd and 3rd grade Girl Scouts while we were working on the “My Promise, My Faith” (considerate & caring) pin. It was a hit!

  • My grandkids were fascinated with this story. The book was in like-new condition, and is a wonderful way to present history in a personalized, interesting manner. The four-year-old's parents were dumbfounded when she later answered a radio question about a famous nurse with "Florence Nightingale!"

  • Beautifully illustrated!

  • Great seller, fantastic product! Thanks!

  • It's OK, but I was disappointed that the author doesn't have Paul Revere shouting, "The British Are Coming." I had to add that for the kids.

  • This is a very nice book about Paul Revere that's appropriate for elementary aged children. Besides covering the war for our nation's independence, one of the nice things that it accomplishes is a more human depiction of Paul. It talks about his two marriages and the 16 children that resulted. It also emphasizes that Paul was constantly working to learn new crafts and skills in order to support his family. There are descriptions and pictures not only of his school days, but also of some interesting kid-friendly trivia, like the fact that Paul once sold a woman a chain for her pet squirrel.

    Five Stars. All in all this is a very good biography. The artwork is colorful and interesting, and there are enough fun details about Revere's life that children should find the book engaging. Very young children will likely need to have the wars and politics explained to them.

    Reading Level: Fifth Grade (5.3)

  • Another nice addition to David Adler's picture book biographies for children. Includes an informative easy to follow story line, additional authors note and a time line; making this a good read for grade school kids when learning about the American Revolution or just for fun.
