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!

In celebration of the HISTORIC Supreme Court announcement this past Friday, Rachel & Sam are reading a very special story. And Tango Makes Three is a book that sparked a lot of controversy back in 2005 because it is a TRUE account of two male penguins raising a baby penguin. It's a beautiful and adorable story.

Rachel and I were delighted to be joined (once again) by Courtney (read: Whitney) Kraft (@TheAnimeGoddess)!

This book. Yeesh. Zach Luna (@ZacharyJLuna) joined us again, and man. This one is rough. Is it really so difficult to write what's special about Wonder Woman? If you're a couple of men, probably. And I'm not saying men can't right Wonder Woman, but I am saying that this one can't. Bluch. But WE (Rachel, Zach, and I) had an absolute blast reading it! And we came up with our own versions of super heroes, which are probably the best thing ever.

LISTEN TO IT!!

Joined by special return guest Zachary Luna (@ZacharyJLuna) we read the super fun book George in the Dark by Madeline Valentine. We have Zach read and man, did we enjoy this book. This kid, George y'see, is super brave, but not... in the dark.

And there are implications. Implications of a Demonic Column nature.... Anyway, enjoy!

It's my birthday episode! (This is Sam typing right now) So I wanted to do something epic and fun. I wanted to read one of The Magic School Bus books! These books are... big. For us. So get ready for a long episode, but it's all fun! Do you remember growing up with this book because I sure do! I used to read ALL the Magic School Bus books and watch the TV show! It's great!

Ms. Frizzle, we miss you. Please come back home.

What's that? A SECOND Dr. Suess book in a row? What glorious world do we live in that supplies such fantastic treats??

This one? Oh boy!!

That said, it ain't as good as last week's. Sure there's wonderful pictures and images because it is Dr. Suess after all, but... well... Dr. Suess can phone it in every now and again too. But that don't mean it ain't RIPE for comedy!
