Nola The Nurse Remembers Hurricane Katrina (Paperback)
Nola wants to be a nurse practitioner just like her mom. She has learned how to care for people of all ages and now visits her friends to heal their sick baby dolls. Along the way, she learns more about her culturally diverse world.
This special edition of Nola the Nurse, published as the people of New Orleans mark the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, honors an event that changed the lives of so many. Nola vividly shares the details of the worst natural disaster to ever hit the United States as her mother told it to her. Her dolls and other toys are instantly transformed as she tells the story of how her mother and Dr. Baker, both nurse practitioners, came back to New Orleans to provide care to many storm victims.
