Olive Beaupre Miller was an American author, publisher and editor of children's literature. Olive Kennon Beaupre was born in Aurora, Illinois on September 11, 1883 to William S. and Julia Beaupre. She received her B.A. from Smith College in 1904. The Book House for Children publishing company was founded in 1919 printing popular children’s literature edited by Miller to meet her standards: "First,--To be well equipped for life, to have ideas and the ability to express them, the child needs a broad background of familiarity with the best in literature. "Second,--His stories and rhymes must be selected with care that he may absorb no distorted view of life and its actual values, but may grow up to be mentally clear about values and emotionally impelled to seek what is truly desirable and worthwhile in human living. "Third,--The stories and rhymes selected must be graded to the child's understanding at different periods of his growth, graded as to vocabulary, as to subject matter and as to complexity of structure and plot."
