5.0 out of 5 stars An American Classic (good history supplement), June 23, 2006
This review is from: Johnny Appleseed (Library Binding)
Almost 5 Stars

In this wonderfully illustrated children's book, Steven Kellogg mixes history and legend to tell a charming tale. Sometimes, the illustrations tell the story without the need for words.

Because of the lengthy text on the pages and the more mature vocabulary used, as well as two different discussions about death, this book is really geared towards the eight to twelve category.

The author includes a note at the end of the book to clarify where history ends and legend beings--as well as can be done. And the map at the back of the book will help children visualize his life-long journey.

Since it appears that the artist does not want to display the pictures, this rater's comments are very helpful indeed. The first sentence tells me the book is wonderfully illustrated. I appreciate this information very much since children tend to focus primarily on the illustrations and then on the story. Thanks you.
