book for child afraid of thunder, Thunder Cake

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.
