Although they don't get the glory, nurses are just as important as doctors.
This series takes readers (Ages 8-12) on a historical journey, examining how people coped in the past and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. Each book features full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles to heighten interest, making the series attractive even to reluctant readers.
For thousands of years, nurses have tended to the sick and the wounded. They look after us in hospital, making sure that we have everything we need to make a quick and complete recovery. When we're ill for a long time, they visit us at home to carry on our treatment. They keep wards organized, comfort relatives, and cheer us up when we're bored of laying in hospital beds all day. You wouldn't want to live without nurses!
