First Grade Boy: “I think that parts of the story are true and parts are not. Like it’s true that there was a flood but it didn’t destroy everything. Just the bad people. I don’t know if all of them [the people] were bad. I think there was just one other family that was just okay – not bad and not good.
“And I think that the part with the ark is true, but the other people were good swimmers so they could hold onto the ark. Because there’s different religions.”
Rabbi Rebecca: “What do you mean?”
First Grade Boy: “Because then there should be two families that were still alive.”
Rabbi Rebecca: “Tell me about these two families.”
First Grade Boy: “I don’t know, but there needed to be at least two.”
