Description

Clementine really wants to practice her first-aid skills, but her brother presents an unexpected challenge in a sweet, funny story from Simon James.

It’s Clementine Brown’s birthday, and Mr. and Mrs. Brown have given her a nurse’s outfit and a first-aid kit — just what she wanted! There is no shortage of emergencies that need her attention (and her liberal use of bandages): Mr. Brown’s stubbed toe, Mrs. Brown’s headache, even Wellington the dog’s tender paw. But her brother, Tommy, is a different matter. Even though he keeps crashing into things, he insists that he doesn’t need a nurse. Clementine is sad — nurses really need someone to help. But could it be that when a real emergency occurs, her skills will be needed?
