A nonfiction Little Golden Book about an American every child should know!
In this simple yet lively book, preschoolers will be introduced to John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed. Lyrical text and bright, appealing artwork capture the essence of this important American. Little ones will enjoy engaging anecdotes about Johnny Appleseed, beginning with the young John, who liked to walk barefoot in the cool, quiet woods. They’ll gain a clear understanding of the way he helped American settlers by walking a hundred thousand miles in his lifetime, for over fifty years, to plant seeds. Fun facts at the end—such as how Johnny Appleseed looked poor in his worn-out clothes, but died owning over a thousand acres of land—round out this nonfiction book with typical Little Golden Book style and warmth.
