Review by Booklist Review
Gr. 1-3. The author recalls growing up in her grandparents' home in the Appalachian Mountains before the days of television and other modern conveniences. Rylant uses the same setting in Miss Maggie.

When I was young in the mountains, Grandfather came home in the evening covered with the black dust of the coal mine. Now, Cynthia Rylant's When I Was Young in the Mountains, illus. by Diane Goode, a Caldecott Honor book, returns in a 20th-anniversary edition wrapped with a copper-colored commemorative band.

Review by School Library Journal Review
K-Gr 3-Rylant delights in the simple joys of living with her grandparents in the Appalachian Mountains: fresh cornbread, the swimming hole, bathing in the tin tub, snakes, and the community church. Surrounding all of these memories is the loving relationship with her grandparents. Warmly rendered illustrations complement the lyrical text. Audio version available from Audible.
