A very very engaging and enthralling book that explains with the help of endearing illustrations the noble and selfless role executed by one indispensable segment of the global population. This is also a very timely book. As the COVID-19 pandemic wreaks havoc across the globe causing untold physical and mental grief, the tireless medical profession in general and nurses in particular stand like a rock between desolation and loss. Heart breaking pictures of the thousands of men and women with scarred faces on account of donning PPEs on a continuous basis even made the cover of The Time Magazine.
Liesbet Slegers making wonderful use of her Graphics and Illustrations studies at the Saint-Lucas institute of Antwerp comes up with a beautiful work that explains in a nutshell (with the help of arresting illustrations) the daily grind of a nurse within the confines of a hospital. whether it be checking the temperature of a small boy who has been admitted on account of a fever or alleviating the leg pain of a girl by keeping the impacted leg elevated by using a pillow, Slegers drives home in an impeccably impactful fashion, the critical functions executed by these angels in white.
A must read for every pre-schooler!
(Nurses and What They Do by Liesbet Slegers is published by Clavis Publishing and will be available from the 7th of September, 2021 onwards.)
