Sit back and let us re-read your childhood favorites, and some new additions to the world of children's lit, and make fun of them all the while! Enjoy!

Farm Flu by Teresa Bateman and Nadine Bernard Westcott

I picked up Farm Flu at the library. It's a silly little story about when an infestation breaks out at our food source. What fun!

Put Me in the Zoo by Robert Lopshire

Put Me in the Zoo is one of those books that I think we all read as a kid. It's silly, magical, and wonderful. Sure, it doesn't make any sense and there are demon children, but at least it's fun! Plus, counting! And colors! Hooray! (We love this book.)

The Silly Knight by David Pascal

Joined again by Samantha Chott, we read The Silly Knight by David Pascal. This is an old book. It came out in 1967 with only one printing. It's got a good message, that it's okay to be different, but for whatever reason it never took off. Samantha found it and brought it to share with us. Let's judge it!

Henry's Awful Mistake by Robert Quakenbush

We are joined by Samantha Chott as we read this classic duck tale! (See what I did there?) It's a fun story about over-reaction and extrememly faulty plumbing. Isn't that what we all want in a story? (yes)
