Miss Rumphius

Barbara Cooney rightly won the American Book Award for her lovely book: “Miss Rumphius”. As author and illustrator, she takes us on a sweet, simple journey. Through Miss Rumphius she shows us how we need to live in the world. The clear, almost matter of fact message: “You must do something to make the world more beautiful.” The declarative sentence fuels an internal quest, one which we cannot help but become engaged in ourselves. Seek out “Miss Rumphius”, share it with a child, read it yourself. Then decide what that something is which you will do to make the world more beautiful.
