Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find, knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door opened.

One morning Boas asked little Sophie to read this Bible passage again after Olga. Boas forgot that Sofie is only 5 years old and can’t read. But she was delighted with such an honor, and “read” with devotion. Her eyes sparkled. She repeated what Olga had just read. The end was a bit wrong:

“When you bolt the door and opens it will be” kapets- hurly-burly”.



The story is part of our series: “The children know more than a lot”
