I liked how this biography was written as a poem. The illustrations surrounding the text reminded me of a quilt, and added an extra layer of sensory experiences to the book. This is not necessarily the kind of biography you would use as a report resource, but it was a good read.

Johnny Appleseed's story as told through poetry is a brilliant way to bring to life one of America's folk heroes. The painting provided in this book are gorgeous and sometimes there will pages with only paintings. Also, pay close attention to the borders around the text on every page. With as many times as people have heard the story of Johnny Appleseed, this version really is the most meaningful to me. There are maps and even a biography of the true Johnny "Appleseed" Chapman. Great for the beginning of the school year!

This books was sent to my daughter at age 6, 10 years ago now. Her brother is 5 and we pulled it off the shelf yesterday to read. The sing song poem really appealed to him and the pictures were captivating. He was counting all the apple 'meadows' (his word) and learned the word orchard. He noticed a log cabin and all the stumps around it that provided the trees. The pictures are rich with question material and I can tell that this is one he will be going back to over and over. Another idea that is presented is that of generations. Hannah begins as a little girl and then we see her as a grandmother. I came looking for another copy of this book to give as a gift.
