Biography Clara Barton Founder of the American Red Cross by Augusta Stevenson Illustrator Frank GiacoiaChildhood of Famous Americans Series ISBN 13 9780020418207 Clara Barton Founder of the American Red Cross by Augusta Stevenson Illustrator Frank Giacoiais from a series of Childhood of Famous Americans A Biography written for children ages 8 12 but can be enjoyed by anyone The book tells about the life of Clara Barton who was a nurse who eventually founder the American Red Cross This book goes into great detail of her life I enjoyed reading about her because she is someone you learn about through nursing school and will always be remembered for the contributions to nursing and American Red Cross Great find that talks about the life of some who contributed so much to nursing and the Red Cross Anything about nursing I love to read. Rating is so hard for me What if a book is not a classic, or the top literary work of it s time, but it resonated with you What if it was 5 stars in your life but not a 5 star book I m going to rate it 5 stars because I love Clara Barton, and this is the only book I have read about her She was shy and cared for animals first, then she realized she cared for people She lost her self conscious self when caring for animals and people My life story I didn t start the Red Cross, though. I really enjoyed reading the story of Clara Barton Founder of the American Red Cross by Augusta Stevenson The writing was simple and easy to understand, yet it was still interesting The author made it easy to connect with the characters by the way she explained everything I think that connecting with the characters is one of the best parts of reading any story I think Clara was especially easy to connect with, and she would have to be my favorite character She was very kind, smart, and strong Everyone around her noticed this, too However, throughout her younger years especially, she was extremely shy The story didn t really show this until she was on her own at school Later, we find out that she is timid when she has to think about herself, but she is strong and dedicated when it comes to others I am sometimes this way too I forget myself when I help other people This is also a major theme that can be taken from this story She had the determination to help those around her, and she was good at it It s these traits that drove her to become an amazing person who did amazing things My favorite quote was said by an unnamed nurse in the story She said, Her relatives say she forgets herself when she begins to talk about the needs of soldiers She becomes another person, with the courage to face any audience anywhere Just wait You ll see what I mean You ll love her I think that this sums up the story very well Overall, I enjoyed learning about Clara Barton and her accomplishments, as well as what helped her do so many great things. I enjoyed this book My son suggested I read it because he enjoyed it so much I like how it starts out with Clara at age 7, my son s age I think he could relate to Clara s love of adventure and how she had an encounter with mean classmates It was an inspiring book for kids I m glad he enjoyed it and is anxious to read the other books in this series.
