Check it Out! Week of September 26th!

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!
