Johnny Appleseed
Jane Kurtz
Illustrated by Mary Haverfield
Ages 4 to 6
Simon and Schuster, 2004, 0-689-85958-9
  Johnny Appleseed is a funny looking fellow with his bare feet, ragged clothes, and a saucepan on his head for a hat. But, even though he is so odd, people don't laugh at him because he is "Apple-loving Johnny," the man who plants apple seeds and who gives baby apple trees to people. He asks for very little in return for his labours; a pan, some food, or a shirt to replace his ragged one. Those who receive his gifts gets a lifetime of apples to eat, store, and cook with.
  In this simple little book early readers get a feel for what Johnny Appleseed did with his life and how he helped people by planting seeds and by giving them baby trees to plant.
