    Little Lou is going to tell the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to his sister Christina. To hold his sister's attention he decides to use household objects to represent the dwarfs. Unfortunately Lou uses bottles and containers he has been told not to touch. His sister Christina keeps putting the objects in her mouth and when Lou gets to the part in the story where the Evil Queen tries to poison Snow White he starts to wonder what would happen to Christina if she swallowed something from these bottles. Lou finishes the story with help from his minder Laura and agrees to help teach Christina to be careful about what she puts in her mouth.
