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!

It's getting closer to Halloween everyone, and that means it's time for ScAaAaAaAaAaAry stories! This one is about a g-g-g-ghost!!

We're joined by Xach Fromson (@_mythogenesis_) to read a silly little book that has no sense of establishing a baseline! Sure the book is fun, but inconsistent. If you like the episodes where we really tear into a book, then this is the one for one!

Because Halloween is not the time to be nice. Halloween is the time for candy! Also this book. Specifically this book on our podcast.

You should listen.

Jon Scieszka & Lane Smith are LEGENDS (in the world of kids' books). (And also everything else.) We read a Lane Smith book two weeks ago and it was amazing. This week's book, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs is something I remember from back when I was but a wee little baby.

Apparently Jacquie remembered it too (@JacquieWaldman) because she's BACK and specially requested this book. And boy, is it great!

That poor wolf. He never called himself "Big Bad." That was ASSIGNED to him by the MEDIA. And we all know how accurate they tend to be. This is HIS story. The TRUE story.

Joined this week by Jacquie Waldman (@JacquieWaldman) we learn something important that I, for one, did not know.

Did YOU know that everybody poops? Me neither! Especially because the book is ACTUALLY called EveryONE Poops and I've been saying it wrong this ENTIRE TIME!

So sit back and relax because what's happening is very natural.

Poop.

Lane Smith is pretty much the best. He's illustrated all SORTS of amazing books, and this month we just kept running into his name. It's a Book is fun. Especially because I just liked saying "uhhhh It's a Book."

This one is cute, quirky, and carries a bit of a message, which I would be super interested in hearing, if I wasn't too busy playing Fruit Ninja on my iPhone.

And the INCORRECT depictions of Apes/Monkeys continues...
