Cynthia Rylant returns to her Appalachian roots in this story of a young girl who lives with her grandparents in the country. As in her very first book, When I Was Young and Lived in the Mountains, Rylant evokes the warmth of a joyful Christmas season and celebrates the greatest gift of all - the love of a family. Diane Goode's cheerful watercolors capture the festivities of the season, from Christmas trees loaded with homemade ornaments to the snow-covered countryside. Christmas in the Country is a warm, evocative portrait of a loving family and a favorite season.
