PRH Education honors all of the doctors, nurses, and first responders who risk their lives every day to serve others in their communities. We have put together a list of nonfiction titles for students who wish to learn more about some of the remarkable men and women who made selfless contributions throughout history, during times of pandemics, wars, disasters, and crises. Among the many fascinating lives profiled in these books, students will read about: Welles Crowther, a volunteer firefighter whose actions on 9/11 offer a lasting lesson on character, calling and courage (The Red Bandanna; adult and young reader adaptation); Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, a pediatrician who courageously helped to expose the Flint water crisis (What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City), and Florence Nightingale, who cared for British soldiers during wartime and changed the field of nursing (DK Life Stories: Florence Nightingale).
