This story of Johnny Appleseed is also a good mix between words and pictures. John went with other pioneers to go to new land, instead of driving with them, he walked. At first he used the seeds as trade goods, then began distributing his apple seedlings to poor families and eventually kept moving west, planting trees as he went.

I especially liked the back cover with the beautiful apple tree. He realizes while eating an apple that the seed can produce apple trees. He lived like the Indians he befriended on the trail.

This book did address historical events, for example, the Revolutionary War.
