Seed by Seed: The Legend and Legacy of John "Appleseed" Chapman

Seed by Seed: The Legend and Legacy of John "Appleseed" Chapman - Esmé Raji Codell, Lynne Rae Perkins Do we really need another book about Johnny Appleseed? In my primary library I have seventeen different books about Johnny Appleseed. Now I have eighteen. And I am very happy with this new look at Johnny. Before I even saw the book, I knew I'd love it; how can you go wrong with a collaboration between the amazing Esme Raji Codell and the wonderful Lynne Rae Perkins?This is a magnificent book. The story carries us from present day America into life at the time of John Chapman. We spend time with Chapman and come to know him by the legacy he left for us: use what you have, share what you have, respect nature, try to make peace where there is war, and you can reach your destination by taking small steps. Beautiful.
