Thunder Cake by Patricia Polacco
Boom! Thunder rumbles and crashes so loud, it's no wonder many children are scared of it. In this story, when a storm rolls in, a wise grandmother consoles her frightened granddaughter by showing her that dark clouds and rumbles in the distance are nothing more than the ingredients for a "thunder cake." Bonus: a recipe for a yummy Thunder Cake is included at the end.
