Text and Images from Meuh, d’où sort le lait ? French

Meuh, d'où sort le laitRaju habitait en ville.
Mais l’été, lorsque l’école était finie, il se rendait dans le village de ses grands-parents maternels.

Chaque été, Raju apprenait quelque chose de nouveau chez eux.
Cette année, il allait apprendre qu’au village, le lait ne sort pas de sachets en plastique !

Le soir de son arrivée, Ajji, sa grand-mère, l’amena à l’étable située derrière la maison.
Quatre gentilles vaches marron ruminaient le foin qu’Ajji était allée leur ramasser dans les champs.

Deux petits veaux bondissaient autour d’elles comme des cabris. Raju était content de pouvoir les observer. Ils étaient vraiment adorables.

Meuh, d'où sort le lait

— Raju, tu sais, le verre de lait que tu viens de boire ? Eh bien, il vient de cette vache-là, expliqua Ajji.
— Le lait que je viens de boire vient d’une vache ? s’étonna Raju.
Tu veux dire que tu viens de la traire et de remplir mon verre de son lait ?

Meuh, d'où sort le lait— Oui, Raju, répondit Ajji en souriant. Viens faire la connaissance de mes vaches. Voici Kaveri, dont tu viens de boire le lait. Là, c’est Kapila, là-bas, c’est Ganga, et tout làbas, c’est Gowri. Raju observa les vaches. Il n’avait pas l’air très rassuré.
— Allez, viens, Raju, l’encouragea Ajji, viens les caresser. Elles ne te feront aucun mal.
