Rachel & Sam Read a Story is about the fun of reading children's books, but it's also about how little sense these books make when you read them 20 years later. 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!

Goodnight Moon is one of those books that everyone has read. Often it's the very first book someone's read. It's Sam's first book anyway. It's a beautifully illustrated and wonderfully written story about a little bunny going to bed. Written by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd, Goodnight Moon is an absolute classic. Now let's tell jokes.

This book consists of paper pages and plastic pages so that color can be laid over color. It presents a cool story about combining colors and hidden shapes. Kids'll love it! We thought it was okay. Well, Sam thought it was okay. It's one of Rachel's favorites. It's by Annette Tison and Talus Taylor. Colors!

Rachel and I had so much fun reading Neil Gaiman's Chu's Day last week that we decided to read another of his books this week! We bring you Blueberry Girl, a beautiful prayer for Neil's own daughter. Illustrated by Charles Vess, this wonderful story is just very nice and very pretty. Read it!

You know who writes good stories? Neil Gaiman writes good stories. Both Sam and Rachel love his books and the Sandman comics, but did you know he ALSO has written some children's books? Well... we've GOT to read that! Chu's Day is a fun story about a panda bear. HA! Panda BEAR! I got the last word Rachel!

Also it's illustrated by Adam Rex. A Tucson guy! Man, I like this book.

We get a little multi-cultural this week as we read a book that seems to be inspired by old morality tales. Oh No! is a fun story about falling in a hole, by Candace Fleming  (Author), Eric Rohmann (Illustrator)
