Thunder Cake - By Patricia Polacco
This is the loving tale of a grandmother who tries to help her young granddaughter let go of a fear of thunderstorms. As in most Patricia Polacco books, the reader is introduced to a few Russian words sprinkled within the text. The illustrations are colorfully painted in, except for the faces of people, which always remain looking like sketches. This is such a sweet book to read to any child who might be slightly frightened by thunder and lightening.
