Miss Rumphius is an illustrated classic from the '80s and a perfect Spring read. The story follows the Lupine Lady, who planted flowers far and wide out of a life-long desire to leave the world a little bit better than she found it. This book stuck with me as an example of how any of us are capable of making positive, long-lasting change: You don't have to change everything to change the world.
