Rachel & Sam Read a Story

Thunder Boy Jr.


Man, having a nice family is great. This week and next's podcast are all about just... the BEST families!

Thunder Boy Jr., in particular, talks about a son living in the shadows of his Dad and wanting to find a way to find his own identity.

It is adorable and beautiful! But I think that we can all agree that the absolute BEST part of this book is when they compliment the name Sam. Mr. Alexie was correct to compliment the greatest of names. We Sam's are humbled to have been gifted with such a good name. And we thank Mr. Alexie for bringing the world's attention to its MAJESTY!

So take a listen to Thunder Boy Jr. (by - Sherman Alexie & Yuyi Morales) and revel in being in the presence of a SAM! (and also a Rachel we guess.)

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!
