    The Magic Word

    The Magic Word

    Joined once again by our guest Bridget Renshaw (@BridgetRenshaw), we read a story about a child who ASCENDS past the mere limits of his own fragile child-self and becomes a GOD!!
    At least, that's my theory. See, this kid discovers the Word. The true Word. The Magic Word.
    And by the power of Grayskull, he uses it. He uses it to the MAX.
    And just getting an amazing supply of sneakers isn't enough. He also commands an unholy army of walruses. FEAR AND WORSHIP PEYTON FOR HE IS YOUR NEW LORD AND MASTER!!
     
    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!

    Quit Calling Me a Monster!

    Quit Calling Me a Monster!

    There are monsters EVERYWHERE!! Well, not really, just one specific monster, but he IS on every page of this book! And sure, he's a monster, but he hates being called that. Floyd doesn't like labels.
    And we here at the podcast don't really like labels either. So here's out "friend" back again to join us for an episode, Bridget Renshaw (@BridgetRenshaw).
    We talk about books. We talk about food. We talk about all of those classic Rachel & Sam Read a Story classic topics, like Malka the dog! And being tired! And more food!
    And then we talk about this kidney bean shaped guy named Floyd Peterson. He seems like a chill dude for someone who is so classically designed to be scary. Makes ya think.

    Leave Me Alone!

    Leave Me Alone!

    Rachel, if you did not already know this, is a fan of yarn. Like, a pretty big fan. The number 1 fan? Maybe not, but she's up there.
    So when she saw on the shelves a book about someone who just wanted to be left alone so that they could knit. SOLD. Easy.
    So we sat down today and chatted about movies we've been watching/being made to watch and then got into the main event.
    This old lady just HAD to get some knitting done and she moved HEAVEN AND EARTH to do it! I mean, I'm pretty sure she's a time-lord, but... well you just listen and figure it out for yourselves!

    The Case of the Stinky Stench

    The Case of the Stinky Stench

    If listeners of this podcast know one thing, it's that we LOVE Josh Funk (@joshfunkbooks). Also his books are pretty fun.
    This is the 4th Josh Funk installment and Rachel and I were DELIGHTED to sink our teeth into it. (GET IT?? BECAUSE FOOD!)
    Inspector Croissant is a food after my own heart. And not just because I love croissants. Especially chocolate ones. But ALSO because I, too, have no idea when/where to properly use a magnifying glass. Is now the time? WHO KNOWS??
    But this book is great. We really enjoyed it. So why not listen? WHY NOT LISTEN???

    Blobfish Throws a Party

    Blobfish Throws a Party

    We all have our favorite animals. Mine happens to be the Peregrine Falcon because it is AWESOME.
    Well not all animals get chosen. Some of those animals are the Blobfish. But Blobfish needs love and friendship too! So Blobfish is going to throw a party!
    Using his INCREDIBLE SUPERPOWERS Blobfish saves the day and brings about the greatest party known to all of humanity and mermaid-ity and bird-anity and farmer-anity.
    This book is super fun and adorable and I can personally attest that it brought our very own Rachel out of a deep funk. Thank you so much to Miranda Paul (@Miranda_Paul) for writing it and thanks to Little Bee Books (@littlebeebooks) for sending us a copy!

    Even Superheroes Have Bad Days

    Even Superheroes Have Bad Days

    It's a Nerdist School Network cross-promotion!
    Amanda Barnes (@BarnesWrites and @ComicBookNovice) co-hosts the super wonderful and fun podcast The Novice and Frank! It's all about the world of comic books and superheroes, but did we have the perfect book for her!
    Superheroes taught us a valuable lesson about controlling our emotions and not being a dick. And we had a wonderfully fun time trying to figure out what they're names/super powers are! Isn't it great when a lesson also turns out to be fun?
    Seriously though, don't be a dick.
    And listen to Amanda's podcast.
