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.
