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!

I'm not sure what this kid is looking for. His parents spelled it out, but I don't know how to spell! What on earth could this t-r-u-c-k be?

*whisper whisper whisper*

OOOOOOoooooh!

Okay, so listen to a fun little book where a poor kid can't quite find his favorite toy, which just so happens to be a TRUCK!

The word truck makes a lot of sense once you think about it.

Rachel & Sam Read a Story is about the fun of reading children's books new and old, and also about how little sense these books make when you read them 20 years later. We read the books aloud and make fun of them as we go. Enjoy!

Ferrets, Stoats, Minks, but most importantly.... WEASELS! They're here for a very specific purpose: World Domination. And why should we expect anything less?

This fun little book was a surprise in how much we enjoyed it. So much fun literally from beginning to end-papers. (See the pun I did there?) And if you, for one, wish to pay respects to our future weasel overlords, the least you could do is listen to this episode!

Sometimes there is a tale as old as time. And sometimes it is about a crocodile. Now, this crocodile was made promises. Promises of a PARTnature. And you can't just make a promise like that. It sets expectations WAY to high. Now we have to figure out a way to celebrate reptilian style: by killing everyone because we don't know how to relate empathetically. We're cold-blooded monsters.

Anyway, let's party!

It is what it says it is. A book with no pictures, but that doesn't mean it lacks frivoloty! And by frivolotyu, we of course mean the potential for a horrendous feedback loop that the reader could be trapped in for all eternity.

Run children. Run for the hills.

Anyway, it's a fun book by a guy I'd heard of before I picked up the book itself. So that's fun!

It's pretty simple. What do you get when you combine and elephant and giraffe?

Why instant comedy for all ages, that's what! Oh those silly kids Giraffe and Elephant may have their differences, but gosh darn it, they still manage to get up to some WACKY hijinks. Gosh darn it, Giraffe and Elephant, can we ever stop loving you?

Answer: no we can not.
