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!

Every once in a while, we stumble upon a book that just falls right into Sam's wheelhouse. This was that book! It was goofy, there was a duck, um.... do we need a third thing? It was good! Just listen to the darn thing!

Jory John and Benji Davies give us a book that fits perfectly with the idea of a bedtime story.

We continue our princess theme by reading The Paper Bag Princess! This, much like last week's book, hails to us from a foreign land! The foreign land of Canadia! What fun!

This was a cute book that may not make the most sense, when you factor in physics. But who ever factored in physics to a children's book? (Hint: us.)

This is the story of Arya-Merida in her quest to be a sword weilding princess who doesn't want her father to marry her off. Arya-Merida is the best princess ever!

Apparently this book is a translation, but you'll just have to wait till the end to find out from which original language! Oh man, worst buzzfeed title ever...

This is another of my favorite books from when I was a kid. Not only is the art absolutely gorgeous, it also is FULL of dinosaurs! Who wouldn't love that? People who are unAmerican, that's who. And you don't want to be unAmerican, do you?

We tried something a little different this episode, going with a book more driven by story than by the illustrated pages. The art, impressive though it is, is largely superfluous.

But it is an enjoyable, andwonder-filled book. And I still like it!
