I remember really enjoying this book when we read this in third grade. It has a 4.5 reading level surprisingly! It is about the legend of John Chapman, whose distribution of apple seeds and trees across the Midwest made him a legend and left a legacy still enjoyed today. There is rhyme in the story, which could be good to use in a lesson on rhyming. We might could do something like plant an apple tree somewhere! The illustrations are great! I will use this in my class.
