One of my favorite things is to read picture books with my kids- even my older kids. No matter your age, you can enjoy a beautiful story with enticing illustrations. Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney is one of those picture books I still enjoy as an adult. The illustrations are beautiful, and I love the theme of Miss Rumphius' story.

About the book...

The story is narrated by the great niece of Alice, who becomes known as The Lupine Lady. When Alice was a very little girl and lived by the sea, she told her grandfather that she wanted to travel the world. Her grandfather encouraged her dreams but told her it was also important to do something to make the world a more beautiful place.

As Alice grows, she does have the opportunity to travel all over the world. When she settles down, she's reminded of what her grandfather said about making the world a more beautiful place. Somewhat accidentally she begins to spread the seeds of lupine flowers. Over time, she becomes known as The Lupine Lady, and she continues to spread beauty wherever she goes.
