'Levi, Loves Jewish Women'

I know this couple at shul. Over kiddish, they were telling me about their recent trip to Israel. They were in a bookstore in Jerusalem with their six-year-old daughter. They were in a section about Judaism and women.
The little girl exclaimed, "We must buy one of these books for Levi [Luke]. Levi loves Jewish women."
The mother explained that yes, Levi, does love Jewish women, but not in this way.
"In what way, then, mama?"
"I'll tell you when you are older."
