Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

This biography of John Chapman will be well received by beginning readers. Demuth shares the most appealing facts about her subject's life: enjoying nature and, of course, planting the seeds for apple trees across the unsettled West. Montgomery's artwork is above average for this genre. Several double-page spreads are beautiful in their simplicity and effectively reflect the historical period. Here is a Johnny Appleseed story that can be read independently or read aloud in September when units about apples are popular. Kindergarten - Grade 2. --Sharon R. Pearce, San Antonio Public Library, TX

    A true American folk-hero

    I love these stories of American pioneers who first built this country, and Johnny Appleseed is one of them. Folklore or not, he will live on forever as one of the first American legends.
