An excellent book about the life of Mary Seacole who nursed and became famous during the Crimean war, when she cared for soldiers. Born in Jamaica, she learnt about the healing powers of plants and cared for the sick. This book uses simple language and is suitable to use in KS1. It does not have a content page, but has an index, important dates, and key words(glossary)section. A very good book to compare and contrast against the life of Florence Nightingale. An excellent book to use with young children to teach history
