Narrator: "Once there was a snowman who just stood in the yard. He stood there with his belt and felt hat."
Elf: "Hey, snowman! Don’t just stand there. Don’t just sun yourself in my yard! Pick yourself up and move! You better bolt or I’ll pelt you with salt."
Snowman: "Yelp! Help! Halt! No salt! Salt will make me melt! I’ll melt!"
Elf: "Yup, spilt salt on a snowman will not bring a good result."
Narrator: "So the elf felt sad for the snowman. He did not want his salt to make the snowman melt. But the sun DID make the snowman melt. Poor snowman!"

Don't Melt Snails with Salt!

Narrator: "Spilt salt on the snail will make it melt. And, spilt salt on the gardener’s plants will make them wilt. So salt will not bring a good result."
