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!

Derek Anderson brings us a lively, fun, and above all goofy tale of what might happen if Santa got...inconvenienced, and the Easter Bunny had to fill in. The Easter Bunny tries so hard. This was a fun story that both Rachel and I enjoyed more-so than the books that would have actually been targetted towards us as kids. Really tells ya sumthin'.

Going back to Hannukah movie, Rachel and I read Eight Crazy Nights by Brian P Cleary and illustrated by David Udovic. See, the book's title is related to the fact that Hannukah is a holiday that spans eight nights. It's clever, which is why the Adam Sandler movie has almost the same name. (I think that one is Eight Crazy Nights)

This is a BONUS episode of Rachel & Sam Read a Story! In honor of the last episode of The Colbert Report, we read the "kid's" book published by the show and Stephen Colbert. I Am a Pole tells the story of a plucky young pole searching for his place in the world. We'll miss the Colbert Report and hope the Tonight Show can handle the awesomeness!

It's a legitimate question. Given the wide range of religious affiliations commonly associated with the dinosaurs, how do those that identify as Jewish, or perhaps those that simply wish to be inclusive, say "Happy Chanukah?" I've often wondered. Now, I have my answer. Turns out it's "GRAAAAAR!" (Spoiler warning)

Balloon Farm

Guess what? It's another one of Sam's favorite books from his childhood! Balloon Farm by Jerdine Nolan and Mark Buehner is a beautiful story about a guy that grows balloons. Out of the ground. On a farm.......so it's a little weird! I still like it.
