Synopsis

Florence Nightingale by Stewart Ross, Jane M. Bingham, Ruth Nason

Florence Nightingale is one of the most famous women in history, whose contribution to helping the injured soldiers during the Crimean War is a wonderful example of how just one person can make a difference to the course of history. Following Florence's journey to the hospital at Scutari and the work that she did there, the book also looks at how the improvements Florence made inform how hospitals treat hygiene and infections in hospitals today. Start-Up History is a series of 6 titles looking at everyday objects and events from their historical perspective and encourages readers to ask questions about what they can see on the page and how that might relate to their own experiences. Perfect introductory history texts for 5-7 KS1 readers.
