Johnny Appleseed's Story  Nov 24, 2008
Johnny Appleseed was a short, but good story. I thought it was entertaining and interesting, but is the story really what happened to him on his travels? There really is no real story about Johnny Appleseed. People and book writers make up some of the details in his life, like when he was stuck in a snow storm. Is that really true? I wonder who actually found out about Johnny planting apple trees.
So I would recommend this book to 1st and 2nd graders if they are interested in the legend of Johnny Appleseed. And if third graders are looking for a Johnny Appleseed book that they can read in a few minutes so they can learn faster, this is a good choice.
I think that the illustrator did a very good job on the pictures. I enjoyed looking at them but I do not think Johnny Appleseed had such a small beard since he did not shave....There were pictures on every page if you like picture books. So parents if you find this book I would tell your kids if they are interested in the legend of Johnny Appleseed.
So is this book of Johnny Appleseed really true? But did Johnny Appleseed really exist?
Many books telling the story of *Johnny Appleseed* are available for the enjoyment of children & adults. Most illustrators treat this subject as strictly legend. A few emphasize that John Chapman did in fact live and leave his mark on the future mid-west. Imagine how Grant Wood might have colored that landscape!

While I like to study the old engravings to help form my picture of this man, children may prefer the 'eccentric-woodsman-with-cookpot-on-head' image. Gwenyth Swain's story is colorfully illustrated by Janice Porter who portrays Chapman as being somewhat oriental. In the past I have liked many of her illustrations, but I feel this 5 star interpretation by the author is not enhanced by these pictures. Swain writes as close to the truth as possible. Sometimes the veil of myth is hard to push aside. Perhaps the illustrator is trying to do just that?

The book tells of Chapman's friendship with settlers and Indians; how he 'found' God and spread his beliefs while planting more and more trees. The author helps readers learn about the 'real' Johnny Appleseed, and appreciate the impact of his life's work even though some facts are missing. Yes, we want children to grow up with heroes; they should also be encouraged to look behind and beyond the myths.
