National Johnny Appleseed Day

Johnny Appleseed was born as John Chapman on September 26, 1774, in Leominster, MA.  He died in March 1845.

He is well-known as a nurseryman spreading apple seeds across Ohio and Indiana.  There are several fictional stories that have been made up about “Johnny Appleseed” over the years.

One of my favorite memories of Johnny Appleseed comes from the song we sang in Girl Scouts:

The Lord is good to me, and so I thank the Lord,
For giving me the things I need,
The sun and the rain and the appleseed,
The Lord is good to me.
And every seed that grows, shall grow into a tree.
And one day soon there’ll be apples there,
For everyone in the world to share,
The Lord is good to me.


Celebrate National Johnny Appleseed Day by reading with your favorite little people, whether it is your own children, your grandchildren, or other family members. If you don’t have any of the Johnny Appleseed books, go to the library and check out one or two.  There are several.

The Johnny Appleseed story is a cute story anyone can enjoy.

All Day
Hi, my name is Pamela. I love books! I have a book in my hand wherever I go, if not a paperback or hardcover book, I’ve got my Kindle, or the Kindle app on my iphone. If I’m not at work and I’m sitting still, I’m most likely reading. I want to share my love of books with you and hopefully, you will read a few of my favorites and come back to share what you thought too. Let’s get reading!!
