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!

So last month I took a little trip to something in Pasadena called DesignerCon! While there, I found a little booth where a nice gentleman named Dane Ault (@monkeyminion) was selling children's cooks that he had illustrated himself! And he even had a parody of the Rachel & Sam classic: Are you my Mother?

I had to buy it. And I had to surprise/give it to Rachel.

It's a cute little book, but you can hear it for yourself! Because that's our final book for 2016!

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!

We've all seen the movie. No, seriously, we've ALL seen the movie. But did you know that Tim Burton also made The Nightmare Before Christmas into a children's book?

It's similar but different!

Jack is way, WAY more of a narcissist. And, frankly, he wasn't doing too well on that score in the movie.

But it's nice every once in a while to remind yourself that Tim Burton has been doing this a long time and is damn fine artist!

Monsters are TERRIFYING.

If they aren't stomping around wreaking havoc and destruction, then they are trying to EAT you!

Oh, these monsters are asleep. And this Little Monster is just telling us about them and making a little recording.

That's okay, we guess! Maybe monsters aren't so bad after all!

THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE! Or... EIGHT! Four?

Um... Hello! This little guy's name is Octicorn and he is the result of a Unicorn Daddy and and Octopus Mommy! I think there's the potential for a lewd joke there, but this is a podcast about childish kid things so I won't make it!

See, the thing about Octicorn is that he knows he's a little weird, but he just wants a friend. Weill you be his friend? I mean, I would, but... y'know. I've been busy... And stuff.
