More About Cynthia Rylant
As a child, Diane Goode loved books and art. She has been drawing ever since she can remember.Of Italian and French descent, she enjoyed the richness of both cultures and traveled to Europeevery summer visiting family as well as cathedrals and museums. She feels that these earlyimpressions helped shape her appreciation of art and life. She studied art history at QueensCollege, but switched to fine arts, in which she earned her degree. Her love for Europe shows in the setting of many of her books Paris in particular, where two ofher recent picture books, Where's Our Mama? and Mama's PerfectPresent. take place. She drewon her experience of living for a short time in Pennsylvania, to do the art work for CynthiaRylant's story of Appalachia, When I Was Young in the Mountains, for which shewas awarded aCaldecott Honor Medal. Diane Goode has illustrated 27 books for children, including anthologiesand stories she has written herself. She has always been drawn to the classics and has illustratedmany of the traditional fairy tales. Of her process, she says: -I always begin with a rough dummy and then work on the individual pages, sketching veryloosely and quickly to establish movement and composition. I do these dozens of times, repositioning enlarging, reducing, adding and omitting. There are always hundreds of sketches foreach book. It sounds tedious, but it is the most exciting part of creating a book. When I msatisfied with these, I do the final art. All of my work is done on opaline parchment, a thin butstrong paper. I sketch lightly in pencil and use water colors applied with very fine sable brushes.Sometimes I use color pencils with the paint to soften the atmosphere.- Diane Goode now lives in Watchung, New Jersey, with her husband David, an author and collegeprofessor. Their son, Peter, attends Rhode Island School of Design.
Cynthia Rylant currently resides in Portland, in the state of Oregon. Cynthia Rylant was born in 1967.

Great baby/baptism gift Jan 8, 2007
This is a great gift any parent will appreciate! Simply stated story and pictures that young children will enjoy listening to and adults will enjoy reading. I first bought it for my daughter's 1st birthday (her middle name happens to be Grace, so it was even more appropriate!) and have given it as a gift many times since then.
Sweet Book Aug 22, 2006
This little book is the perfect way to share a prayer with your child. It's wonderful, and I buy it for all my friends. The bright, vivid illustrations are also an eye catcher for little ones.
Sweet book for baby May 26, 2006
Beautiful illustrations and sweet, simple prayers - one for each day of the week. After our bedtime story, we read the day's prayer and say goodnight to our 6-mo-old. (Would be great for 6-yr-olds too.) A wonderful book. Would be a sweet christening/baptism gift.
Give me More Grace... Jan 7, 2006
This book is delightfully poetic. I read this book to my newborn every day and never tire of the wording. My baby looks attentively at the beautiful illustrations. Adults that have overheard me reading aloud to my child have commented on the beauty of this simply loveable book.
Perfect baptism or confirmation gift Dec 7, 2004
I give this book to nieces, nephews and friends when baptized or confirmed. Its best for under age 7, I would say. It has beautiful, vividly colorful graphics that naturally attract children.
The simple, but thoughtful messages are easy for even a 2 year old to understand. And, it helps transmit the message that prayer is a warm, comforting activity, to be incorporated into daily life.
