For thousands of years, nurses have tended to the sick and the wounded. Although they don't get the glory, nurses are just as important as doctors. They look after us in hospital, making sure that we have everything we need to make a quick and complete recovery. They keep wards organised, 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! is part of a brand-new science and technology strand within the internationally acclaimed You Wouldn't Want to Be series. The clear, engaging text and humorous illustrations bring the subject to life and stimulate young readers' curiosity about the world around them.
