Content : Like every Wednesday, Anna-Yi spends the day with Grandma and eat a delicious lunch. But today it will be a special menu because Anna-Yi is celebrating her sixth birthday! Grandma even has a surprise in store for her...
“Are you hungry? is what Grandma always asks Anna-Yi. It is her way of saying "I love you". The little girl realizes that her grandmother does a lot of things in her own way: she mixes several languages, she kisses through the nose... But above all, she prepares delicious secret recipes! Together they share the richest language in the world.
