Looking for a Johnny Appleseed book that young students can read themselves? This is a great choice. Early readers learn how 'Johnny Appleseed' started planting apple trees as well as other the stories about his life.
And since John Chapman was know to be a real storyteller, author David Harrison has him telling his own story to a pioneer family who has welcomed him into their log cabin for the night.
Wohnoutkha's accompanying illustrations "capture the beauty of
landscape, the innocent goodness of the people, and the slightly
larger-than-life persona of Johnny Appleseed." (Publisher's Weekly)
