Thunder Cake


Did you ever think baking could be related to thunderstorms? In this book, Grandma collects all of the ingredients to make a "thunder cake" to distract her granddaughter from being scared of a thunderstorm. Patricia Polacco uses wonderful onomatopoeia to tell the story. Grandma and granddaughter travel around the farm collecting the ingredients: eggs and milk from the chickens and cow, flour from the dry shed, tomatoes and strawberries. With each stop, the thunderstorm gets closer, but they make it back home just in time to make a real thunder cake!
