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!

100. One hundred. Centennial. A Benjamin. Hmmm....

WE HIT A HUNDRED EPISODES!!!!!!!

To celebrate, we read a book that we have been asked to read since the podcast began: A Very Hungry Caterpillar. But the thing about this book is that it's pretty short. So, we read FOUR Eric Carle books! That's more books than in any previous podcast in this or any other dimension!!

We're also joined by terrific guests and fan favorites Bridget Renshaw and Zach Luna.

All in all, it was a great time. Eric Carle is amazing, his books are amazing, and you all are amazing for listening to our fancy shmancy episode 100!

I want you to know that this episode is specifically for Jennie Crittenden. Because she loves penguins. She probably won't read this message, but I wanted to write it down before I forgot.

Episode 99! Are you ready are you excited.... for PENGUINS?!?!?!

Penguins. Well, one main penguin, but there are support penguins!

This book is fun, it's cute, AND it has familiar joke structures, which I certainly appreciated! I don't know if it teaches kids anything, but it sure would be fun to read to them!

It also gives Rachel and I a chance to talk about Angry Birds, which really don't get the publicity they deserve. When will this struggling indy game break into the public focus?? WHEN??

Anyway, read the book!

Dinosaurs man. Always be threatening to chomp us if we be continuing to read the book they're in. I mean, it's not like that book constitutes THEIR VERY EXISTENCE!!

Either way, there's a secret here and we will get to the bottom of it!

I really enjoyed this book (and not just because I got to read it). It was cute and silly and did a few things that were new to our children's book-reading experience. Good work Jory and Bob!

And we're back! Happy 2016 everyone!

This week, we are celebrating the new year with a story from the CrEePy Edward Gorey omnibus. Now, I've never really heard of Edward Gorey, but Rachel loves him. And this was, indeed, a dark tale. There are certainly questions to be answered, like:

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE DAMN LOZENGE?
