“Johnny walked for miles and miles, shared his stories and his smiles. Johnny cared for little plants, children, forests, birds, and ants.”
John Chapman, known as “Johnny Appleseed,” planted apple tree nurseries all over the US. He believed in trying to never harm a living thing, so he advocated for animal rights and planted seeds instead of grafting tree branches like most other orchardists. Now even babies can enjoy this wonderful story through Kate Coombs’ poetry and Seth Lucas’ beautiful artwork. Watch Johnny Appleseed be brought to life for young readers, encouraging them to Be Adventurous and Be Kind to every person, animal, and plant they meet.
