Welcome to the second chapter of the story about Salt and Pepper. Miss Beatrice, the kind neighbor, invited Salt and Pepper to her house. They would talk about having salt in your speech.
“To talk with salt means to give a pleasant taste to the words we say,” Miss Beatrice explained to the boys. “No one likes unseasoned food. It doesn’t taste good. In the same way, it’s not pleasant to listen to bad words and ugly conversations.That’s distasteful to our ears and our heart!”
“Sometimes I say bad words,” Felix said. “Does that mean I’m talking with pepper?”
“What do you think?” answered Miss Beatrice. “Just as pepper stings your tongue, bad words and ugly talk leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
Follow along as Miss Beatrice teaches the boys about seasoning their words with salt.
I read the story to my youngest grandchild last night. She got all excited about a word the children have to guess, about something that is worth more than gold. I told her to sleep on it. First thing this morning she wanted to read the next chapter, so she could find out what the word was.
She is privileged, because her grandmother writes the stories. I told her the other children have to wait a whole week to find out.
Find the next chapter of the story in the SALT AND PEPPER page.
