Reviews - What do our customers think?
Attractive and fun.  Jan 13, 2008
Legend and hero tale. Very young primary.

Johnny Chapman went around Illinois planting apple trees and training small trees for goods in order to help spread the crop.

Free SF Reader  Sep 3, 2007
Definitely not the action/adventure hero I was looking for as a child. American, too, I think, so that meant I was less interested. when it comes right down to it, planting fruit is really not that interesting a story if you are looking for something fun.
Glad to have Johnny in the house!  Mar 9, 2006
This is enjoyable to read and we're happy to own it. Since this is such a timeless tale, we feel it's a must for any library. The artwork is unique and the tale is cleverly written in rhyme. It's thicker than most paperback books this size.
Johnny Appleseed  Oct 6, 2005
This book was great to read to my class of first graders.
The pictures were terrific.
A Cherished Legend told with Beautiful Simplicity  Jun 1, 2005
The story of Johnny Appleseed has long been a favorite, cherished legend of the American frontier for generations of young children, and this magical collaboration between poet Lindbergh and illustrator Jakobsen is a sweet and simple way to introduce it. Both poem and illustrations are beautifully simple, lacking all artiface, and are thus wonderfully appropriate for descibing a legend famous for those same qualities.
Lindbergh's poem tells Johnny Appleseed's story through the perspective of one woman who observed his odd career over the course of her lifetime. "She saw him first", so the poem goes, when she was just a little girl and he visited her familie's frontier cabin in the woods. All her life, as she grew and with her the country, turning from rough frontier into settled lands, she heard the tales of Johnny's journeys as civilization's ambassador as he spread his gift of apple trees. "She saw him last" as well, when as an old woman she welcomed the aged Johnny at her neat little farm house surounded by apple trees. And she kept alive his legend when he was gone, by telling his stories to her grandchildren every year at apple harvest time.
Kathy Jakobsen's wonderful folk art illustrations are the perfect fit for this tale. Her pictures are simple, almost child-like; bursting with vivid color and full of creative energy. There is a full page illustration across from each page of text, which in turn is boardered with illustrations of scenes from Johnny's story. In addition, there are two double paged illustrations; one showing settlers moving into the wild frontier, and the other showing that same land as tamed and settled country, full of apple trees. Jakobsen's brilliant folk art illustrations are what sets this book appart as something truly special, and are the reason that I bought the book.
The final page of the book gives a brief history of John Chapman - the man behind the legend of Johnny Appleseed, nicely ballancing history and legend.
If you have cherished this gentle legend and wish to introduce it to your children, this book perfectly fills the bill.
