Anne fête son premier Noël à Avonlea! Elle se sent pleine de reconnaissance pour beaucoup de choses, en particulier le gentil couple qui l’a adoptée. Mais Anne est anxieuse, car elle doit réciter des poèmes lors du concert de Noël. Elle trouve aussi que ses amis et sa famille lui donnent tellement durant toute l’année… et qu’elle n’a rien à leur donner en retour. Anne aimerait vaincre son trac et rendre tout le monde fier d’elle pendant le concert. Elle veut aussi montrer à ses proches à quel point elle les apprécie.Y parviendra-t-elle?

Des illustrations magnifiques et un message touchant font de cet album une lecture idéale pour les fêtes.


Celebrate the holiday season with Anne of Green Gables fame! It’s Anne’s first Christmas in Avonlea, and she is thankful for so many things, especially the kind people who adopted her. But Anne is distracted by having to sing at the upcoming Christmas concert. She also feels bad that her friends and family give her so much during the year, but she has very little to give in return.

Can Anne overcome her jitters and make everyone proud, while also thinking of a way to show her appreciation for the people she loves?

Original title: Merry Christmas, Anne
