Children's LiteratureThis colorful, well-photographed volume provides a balanced introduction to nursing for the earliest school-age youngster. With informative questions and answers, it takes the reader through a typical day in the life of Alton, a clinical nurse. It was refreshing to see a male nurse depicted, as so often the profession is mistakenly identified as exclusively a woman's career. Alton's day seemed somewhat limited; there were no emergencies or complex cases for him to deal with, but the routine procedures a child is likely to encounter were well-explained. Interesting, sometimes offbeat facts and a good photograph explaining much of the equipment nurses use are regular features in this attractive series of books on "Community Helpers at Work" from Capstone. Informative glossaries, age-appropriate bibliographies, website information and indexes are also included. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
