Reviewed By Micaela Alpert for Readers' Favorite
Nola the Nurse is a great book for young children to read, even those who don't know what they want to be when they grow up. Young children will definitely like this story, and I hope this book ends up in children's bookstores and many schools. I really liked this book because Dr. Baker wrote it to be culturally sensitive to African-American nurses, which is also why it is a great book for young children because teaching them to be culturally sensitive at a young age is very important.
