Miss Rumphius

A Tale About Making the World More Beautiful

Last week, our librarian recommended several books to us for Women’s History Month, which is in March. I checked out a big bag of them and we have been enjoying each one so far. One of them in particular is my favorite. Written and illustrated by Barbara Cooney, the book is called Miss Rumphius, and it is the tale of a single woman who lives and adventurous, amazing life—and helps both people and the world throughout her lifetime.
