Little Naturalists: Johnny Appleseed
- By Kate Coombs & Seth Lucas
John Chapman, known as “Johnny Appleseed,” planted apple tree nurseries all over Pennsylvania, Ontario, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and West Virginia. He believed nobody should ever harm a living thing, so he advocated for animal rights, became a vegetarian, and planted seeds instead of grafting tree branches like most other orchardists. Kate Coombs and Seth Lucas recreate Johnny Appleseed’s adventures for young readers, encouraging them to Be Adventurous and to Be Kind to every person, animal, and plant they meet.
