Ida Scudder: Healing in India



Product Description

As Ida tossed in bed that night,
she thought of all three wives:
There are no female doctors here
to help save women’s lives.
So moved was Ida that she thought
about a new career.
She prayed, “Lord help me spend my life
assisting women here.”
The daughter of American medical missionaries, Ida Scudder (1870-1960) cared deeply for women in India who were not allowed to receive medical care from a male doctor.  In humble service to God, she dedicated her life to assisting such women and many others.  Dr. Scudder traveled to small villages to bring timely aid, trained India’s first female doctors, and founded a first-class hospital, in which her important work continues today.  Now Heroes for Young Readers makes Ida Scudder’s remarkable story available in this picture book all ages will treasure.

Heroes for Young Readers introduces younger children to the lives of Christian heroes! Whether reading for themselves or being read to, children love the captivating rhyming poems and unforgettable color illustrations of the Heroes for Young Readers series.
