Nearly half a century ago, a little golden-haired girl from the South of France embarked on a series of adventures with her best friend, a sheep named Patapon, that would delight children around the world. Now those who fondly remember Jeanne-Marie from childhood, as well as those new to her charms, will cherish this compilation of three classic tales. Written and illustrated by Francoise, a French artist long beloved for her universal understanding of young readers, these enchanting stories have become timeless treasures of children's literature. With their distinctive colorful pictures, rhythmic text, and playful approach to instilling values and practical skills, the journeys and discoveries of Jeanne-Marie and Patapon are certain to win a new generation of fans. In one engaging volume, "The Adventures of Jeanne-Marie" brings together:
Noel For Jeanne-Marie - This endearing tale captures the true spirit of Christmas. As the holiday approaches, Jeanne-Marie tells Patapon about the birthday of little Jesus...and something more: if you are very good, Father Noel fills your wooden shoes with presents; But Patapon has no shoes to leave by the chimney...and feels very sad. What Jeanne-Marie does to help her friend discover the joys of Christmas will help children discover the joys of friendship and giving.
Jeanne-Marie Counts Her Sheep - Winner of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) Award for Best Book of The Year, this delightful story sneaks in a lesson on numbers. What might Jeanne-Marie buy if Patapon has a lamb or two or three...or ten? As Jeanne-Marie ponders all the wonderful possibilities-a bright red hat with a blue feather, a ride on the Merry-Go-Round, even a little house! - her hoped-for lambs appear one by one, urging young readers to count along.
Springtime For Jeanne-Marie - This charming story will transfix even the smallest listeners with its thrilling search and sing-along patterns. This Springtime, Jeanne-Marie is especially happy to have two dear friends: her beloved Patapon and a white duck named Madelon. She skips about her village singing a little song: "Jeanne-Marie. Patapon . Madelon. We are three." But soon Madelon swims away down the river.... and they are only two! As Jeanne-Marie and Patapon set out to find their lost pal, children will follow along, and delight in the surprise reunion.
With its captivating illustrations, heartwarming messages, and thoroughly lovable characters, "The Adventures of Jeanne-Marie" will thrill young children....and the grown-ups who share the experience.
