Long long time ago, God was very sad that the people on Earth was not kind to each other.

God told Noah to build an Ark, which is a big boat. Then God brought seven of some animals and two of every kind of animal. Birds big and small, animals short and tall went into the Ark.

There were seven cows, seven sheep, seven goats, seven chickens, seven ducks, seven turkeys, two lions, two bears, two elephants, two giraffes, two zebras, two dogs, two cats, two lizards, two spiders, two tiny ladybugs.

Then a big flood came but Noah and his family and the animals were safe as they were on the Ark. They drifted in the flood waters for many weeks and when the flood water began to go down, Noah, his family and all the animals went back to land.

Noah looked up into the sky and saw a beautiful rainbow and God promised Noah that He would never again destroy the whole Earth with a flood.
