What people are saying about our guides…

“First of all, let me just say this guide is INCREDIBLE! It’s a great mix of reading, discussion and hands-on to keep everyone engaged, even across different age groups.” Elizabeth H.

At Learning Through Literature, we believe that well-written stories can inspire children to make the strongest learning connections. Mix in some fun, hands-on activities, and new knowledge is solidified in a child’s mind without tests and worksheets.

Our Guides harness the power of stories as a direction for intentional learning adventures.

For this guide, we feature the story of Johnny Appleseed because of its importance in American literature and the sheer fun of the tall tale.

Simply reading the tale is enjoyable. Reading and exploring the richness of connected topics helps anchor new knowledge to something memorable.

The learning begins with reading any version of the tale you find available (although we recommend a few versions for ideas). From there, we explore the real person behind the tale, the history and geography surrounding his life, and other fun learning adventures with apples.
