Happy Birthday Johnny Appleseed!
This week, our library classes celebrated the birthday of Johnny Appleseed on September 26th. We read the book Seed by Seed: The Legend and Legacy of John “Appleseed” Chapman by Esme Raji Codell. We learned that John Chapman was a real person who lived more than 200 years ago. He had 11 brothers and sisters and we learned why he is depicted as wearing a pot on his head. (Easy to carry and kept the rain off!)
We then took a poll of our favorite apple treats. The winner by a landslide was the caramel apple, with apple pie a close second!
This week also happened to be National Cat Week, so we pulled a bunch of books about cats for the students to browse.
Have a wonderful weekend!
