"This 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." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

"Well-balanced views of familiar professions. Each spread includes a clock with the time of day, full-color photos, and one or two paragraphs of large-print text that explain what the job involves. Everyone except the librarian takes a lunch break. Hmmmm. People of various races are illustrated, and the nurse is a man. The question/answers chapter format works well, and each book includes an “Equipment Photo Diagram,” with parts of the workspace labeled." - School Library Journal
