Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Though she never says outright that he was a real person, Kurtz introduces newly emergent readers to the historical John Chapman, walking along the Ohio, planting apple seeds, and bartering seedlings to settlers for food and clothing. Haverfield supplies the legendary portions of his tale, with views of a smiling, stylishly ragged, clean-shaven young man, pot on head, wildlife on shoulder or trailing along behind. Kurtz caps her short, rhythmic text with an invitation to "Clap your hands for Johnny Chapman. / Clap your hands for Johnny Appleseed!" An appealing way to open discussions of our country's historical or legendary past. (Easy reader/nonfiction. 5-6)
