More About Cynthia Rylant & Coco Dowley

Cynthia Rylant As a child in West Virginia, Cynthia Rylant never dreamed of becoming a writer. In her free time, she devoured Archie comic books and paperback romances and enjoyed the outdoors. But after taking one college English class, she was, "hooked on great writing... I didn't know about this part of me until I went to college-didn't know I loved beautiful stories." And one night, inspired by the Southern writer James Agee, she sat down and wrote When I Was Young in the Mountains. Named a Caldecott Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, it was an instant success.
Since that night, Rylant hasn't stopped creating wonderful books. Her stories explore friendship, love, grief, and other mysteries, and often draw on her memories of growing up in Appalachia. "I get a lot of personal gratification thinking of those people who don't get any attention in the world and making them really valuable in my fiction-making them absolutely shine with their beauty."
She lives with her many pets in the Pacific Northwest.

Cynthia Rylant currently resides in Portland, in the state of Oregon. Cynthia Rylant was born in 1967.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Loved it!  Mar 7, 2003
My 8 yr old brought this book home from her school library. I cried the first time I read it to her, and after that I just made her read it to me! I thought it was fabulous, and have added it to our own library, as well as given it as a gift to many other children.
A Wonderful Book  Jun 27, 2001
This book was brought to my Children's Literature class and praised by everyone. At least three of us cried at the beauty of the language. The ending grabbed all of us. How beautiful for a child to read that he or she is wonderful just like the the trees, rain and birds. The clever use of borders, lines and space were praised by the professor. Contrary to the previous reviewer, we found the book delightful.
Such a great start, but in the end, a disappointment..  Feb 12, 2001
I picked up this book because the cover looked appealing, and I was intrigued about what this book may be about. I started reading it, and I was really quite impressed. I was starting to get notions in my head about using this book for storytime at work or donating it to my elementary school, but kept reading and changed my mind.

Rylant evokes a great sense of the wonderful in the "ordinary". Little thing which we so often take for granted. I loved that about this book. However, I was really put off about how she tried to tie that in with the child's own being. I didn't like how she made it sound like "then one day, YOU happened", (just like a flower blooming!) because there IS a great difference, in my eyes, in a child being born and a loaf of bread being made.

It could have been really wonderful, but this analogy left me with a bad feeling in the end.

The Next "Good Night Moon"  Oct 20, 2000
What a charming book to introduce the young child to the concept of birth. "The Wonderful Happens" is beautifully illustrated by Coco Dowley and the point of the book shows to a young child the simple beauty and wonder of nature unfolding. I highly recommend this book for reading and sharing with a 3-5 year old child.
Wonderful Happenings  Oct 17, 2000
This charming picture book makes the connection between how the everyday objects in our lives begin, including us, and then evolve into a final product. For example wheat grows in a field, becomes flour, and then bread.It explains that in the beginning there was no you but then you happened and will grow just like everything else. It beautifully answers many questions children are apt to have about the how and why of things. The illustrations are charmingly filled with birds, animals, flowers, snowmen, all things that would delight a young child. This book could become the next "Good Night Moon."
