Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Rofofsky Marcus
This colorfully illustrated book uses simple language to tell about Johnny "Appleseed" Chapman. Unlike other narratives, this one begins with Johnny Appleseed's birth and family, packing much information about the man himself rather than his apple trees into easy-to-read language. Telling not only of Johnny Appleseed but also being grateful for and happy with what you have, this book educates as it entertains. While the words are appropriate for an easy reader, the sentences are long and often compound, which detracts from the reading level, leading the book to be classified as a picture book. The muted colors and whimsical nature of the images, while still approximating life-like, brings a sense of peace and contentment, just as Johnny Appleseed found for himself and others. This book is good for ecology and environmental lessons, sharing lessons, and for the quiet child who prefers to do things in his or her own manner rather than as part of the group.
