The Story of Johnny Appleseed

This classic book beautifully tells the story of John Chapman, more commonly known as Johnny Appleseed, in simple terms a small child can understand. His journeys through the land of the pioneers planting apple trees and spreading his message of peace is simply and colorfully illustrated in oils and pastels. The bright and happy colors capture the attention and give a feeling of the warmth the character is trying to spread. Highly recommend!
