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!

Some of us are dog people. Some of us are cat people. Some of us are unholy-risen-from-their-long-forgotten-tomb cat people.

This book is for those kind of people!

Mummy Cat is a fun look at Egyptian hieroglyphics. It's also a truly tragic story of a cat who has waited for thousands and thousands of years to be reunited with his best friend.

It is a lovely story and we enjoyed reading 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!

There are a lot of traditions surrounding the day-to-day machinations of a farm. Cows make milk. Chickens lay eggs. Pigs are delicious, and roosters wake the sun from its permanent cycle of sleep with the clarion call of their Cock-A-Doodle-Doo!

Truly it is a magical world.

So what happens when the rooster tires of tradition? Tired of the same STANDARD way of greeting the day? The answer is a bleak, cold, and everlasting night.

So enjoy this kids' book! Hooray!

There are few truths that exist throughout the universe. Few absolutes that can be stated to which there is no argument. This is one of them:

Everyone. Loves. BACON.

But, and there is always a but, do you know how far that passion carries this humble breakfast/anytime food? So far that it extends EVEN to the other breakfast foods. And other foods. All foods.

This is a book about that love.

About the love... of BACON!

These are the important issues of the day. Crustaceans in leisure-wear. Sure, there are things going on in the world. Important things! But this lobster, you guys, this lobster is in a robe.

I mean, yes, we can, and do, briefly reference the Super Bowl. #AllTheFumbles

And sure, we could talk about the upcoming Oscars, but you GUYS! There is rhyme scheme and a silly lobster doing silly things! I think we made the correct choice.

And also, we've been doing this for a little while and have recently learned about the power of iTunes reviews. So if you have time, please, take a minute and leave us a little something on iTunes. It would go a long way for us, and we'd really appreciate it.

And now, on with the show!
