I am a recently retired elementary teacher. I used Cynthia's books when I was teaching writing. The language in books such as When I Was Young in the Mountains, The Relatives Came, Christmas in the Country and Snow as well as others was so rich. These books turned the children on to words and made them want to attempt the use of descriptive words. I was also able to use Cynthia's books to demonstrate to the children to think of small moments in their lives to write about as her books were a window into a small moment in time. Thank you for your beautiful books!
