Miss Rumphius

Read "Miss Rumphius" countless times to my children while they were growing. Waiting to read it again to my grandchildren, meanwhile the child in me loves to read and listen to it on audio. It portrays my view on life: to make the world a better place for others. Miss Toren brings the story to life, her soothing voice calms me down and brings tears to my eyes. Yes, there are still people out there who want to make the world a better place and I'm one of them. Bravo!
