Description

The larger-than-life story of a true American hero--John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed.

This fun picture book has been a favorite for generations. Bursting with energy and perfect for reading aloud at home or in the classroom, Johnny Appleseed is an excellent choice for storytime.

"The brief text combining legend with fact, coupled with the picture book format, makes this life of Johnny Appleseed the most accessible and entertaining one available for young children," according to School Library Journal. Steven Kellogg "is ideal as interpreter of this fascinating man. An affectionate portrayal, enthusiastically accomplished," praised Booklist

A good supplement for units on tall tales, folktales, American history, apples, and seasons! And just a fun read-aloud for sharing.
