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!

We all had imaginary friends when we were growing up. I personally don't remember mine, but have been told REPEATEDLY by my parents that such a friend existed. He was named Woody. And I do not remember him at all.

And that's the real tragedy isn't it?

Imaginary friends get a bit of a raw deal. They give us so much happiness, but eventually, we move on.

Ah man, now all I can think about is Bing Bong. Poor Bing Bong...

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!

Collaboration.

It's a real thing, isn't it? You have to work together with someone who you may not always agree with, and at the end of the day, no matter what, both your names are on the project.

Rachel and I sure don't know anything about that!

And here comes these two kids who have to tell a story, but they each want to tell it their own way. Good for them! But maybe it's a little... disjointed? Because these two stories jump all over each other in a way that is quintessentially kid-book.

Enjoy!

Maaan, I wish MY mom had super powers. The only powers she has are the ability to tell when that the cookie I'm currently eating is "enough." But it's NOT enough Mom! It's never enough!!

In this book we discover that certain mother's may OR MAY NOT possess certain... powers. It's all about the way those characters are perceived. And often having very little to do with reality. UNLESS THEY DO HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH REALITY!!

If you like super powers and speculation, you'll love this book. And we all love both of those things! So you'll enjoy the book!

And now I have to go sneak another cookie while Mom isn't looking...

Meta!

Sometimes you're just going about your life and something WILD happens that pushes you in an entirely different place or story. For those whose lives are fictional, that can be WAY more intense!

Imagine finding yourself in a world entirely different from your own.

These kids sure do take being knocked out of their book in stride. It's impressive, really!

Plus! Rachel and I talk about the Oscars because we are the MOST current people in the world. But seriously, go see The Big Short. It's amazing.
