Seed by Seed teaches young readers about Johnny Appleseed
We've all heard the folktales of Johnny Appleseed and this picture book introduces young readers to the American hero. Young readers are transported to a different time. A time where there are no airplanes in the sky and phones ringing, but rather the creaking of wagon wheels and the crackling of campfires. Young readers learn that the tales of Johnny Appleseed are three parts legend, one part fact, and stories we're not sure are true.
SEED BY SEED is a great addition to any library or school and kids will love the fact that any apple they eat today might possibly be a descendant of a tree planted by Johnny Appleseed. The book dives into how Johnny Appleseed changed the landscape of a nation and encourages young readers to plant their own seeds.
