Little People, Big Dreams: Florence Nightingale by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara & Kelsey Garrity-Riley. Let’s introduce the youngest dreamers to the founder of modern nursing with the Little People, Big Dreams: Florence Nightingale book.
Growing up in an upper-class family, it was expected that Florence would find a husband and live a life of luxury – but that kind of life wasn’t for her. Her calling was caring for the sick and the poor, so she followed her passion with her whole heart and trained to be a nurse. When war broke out, Florence traveled to nurse wounded soldiers but found that the hospitals were so dirty that they were making people ill. This experience inspired her to lead a healthcare revolution and she became the mother of modern nursing, introducing care practices still followed today.
