Johnny Appleseed!

Johnny Appleseed - Reeve Lindbergh, Kathy Jakobsen

I remember really enjoying this book when we read this in third grade.  It has a 4.5 reading level surprisingly!  It is about the legend of John Chapman, whose distribution of apple seeds and trees across the Midwest made him a legend and left a legacy still enjoyed today. There is rhyme in the story, which could be good to use in a lesson on rhyming.  We might could do something like plant an apple tree somewhere!  The illustrations are great! I will use this in my class.
