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!

We're continuing Season 2 strong! This week the very fun... but weird, Pirates Love Underpants by Claire Freedman (author) and Ben Cort (illustrator). Every pirate has to have a theme, I suppose, so what happens when a particular pirate crew is underpants themed? Shenanigans is the only possible outcome.

Welcome to Season 2 of Rachel & Sam Read a Story! Now with an intro! Isn't it so shiny and fancy? We certainly think so.

To debut the intro we have it's performer Kari, or she likes to be called "Karrat Time", with us for the episode. And Kari brought a friend! We are also joined by bassist extraordinaire Aaron Leonard! Fun for everyone! AND in honor of our new season, we decided to pay tribute to our most popular podcast from last year: Curious George! We read the second installment in the series, and man oh man. It's just as bad as the first.

It's Valentine's Week everyone! And if you're like us, then you're miserably alone. So...very...alone... Let's make ourselves feel better by listening to silly books! Hooray! I like this story, and the horrible implcations of the creation of sentience in this universe! Brenda A Ferber and Tedd Arnold did a very fun job creating a story I will use to question the meaning of life in the universe for many years to come!

This is a quite old book of riddles/jokes for kids. It was published in 1960! It's called Bennett Cerf's Book of Riddles (with drawings by Roy McKie). Sam's sister got it for him for Hannukah this year. Isn't that nice? It is especially nice because this old book was turned into a journal by Ex Libris Anonyous. Jaboc (jacob@bookjounals.com) apparently takes old kids books and turns them into quirky little journals! What a fun idea! I get a journal, and you get to enjoy some classic riddles at the same time!
