Publisher Summary

Recounts the life of John Chapman, the legendary Johnny Appleseed.

A seasonally appropriate portrait of the national folk hero recounts his story while explaining how the lessons he imparted remain relevant today, from being resourceful and respecting nature to being generous and promoting peace. Illustrated by the Newbery Medal winner of Criss Cross.

His real name was John Chapman.He grew apples.But wait. So what?Why should we remember himand read about himand think about himand talk about him today,more than two hundred years after he was born?Why should we call him a hero? Esme Raji Codell and Lynne Rae Perkins show us, in eloquent words and exhilarating pictures, why Johnny Appleseed matters now, perhaps more than ever, in our loud and wired and fast-paced world.
