This a cute book BUT has the science completely wrong. The old myth that lightning is one mile away per second counted is dangerously wrong and the publisher seriously needs to print a disclaimer in each book. Sound travels at 344 meters per second (1129 feet) so if you count 3 seconds the lightning is 344 X 3 or just over a kilometer away -- very, very close (3387 feet). Ironically, the furthest away you can hear thunder is about 10 miles, so the best rule of thumb is if you hear thunder, get inside.

If you don't like metrics (heaven help you in calculating dollars and cents) a rule of thumb is to divide the number of seconds by 5. So 5 seconds equals lightning just a mile away.

A loud clap of thunder frightens a little girl who is visiting her grandmother in the country. Her witty grandmother decides to preoccupy the frightened girl by baking a Thunder Cake. The cake must reach the oven before the storm arrives. ( )

After reading this.... actually while reading, I absolutely said "I'm going to do that one day when I have kids or grandkids." I loved everything about the lesson grandma taught while preparing a Thunder Cake. Showing, not just telling her granddaughter, that she was brave in such a creative way. Grandma shows her how she overcame her fear of thunder while doing many other courageous things in the meantime! I'm grateful to Polacco's Babushka for teaching her this lesson, so I have this example to tackle children's fears in a creative, caring, and empowering way. I love when author's extend the story by gifting us a sentimental recipe, inviting us fully into their story and their family. ( )

There are many reasons why I loved this book. The point of view in this story is one of the reasons I loved this story. This book is in the first person point of view, narrated by the grandaughter. By the story being first person, it allows the readers to understand the narrator’s thoughts and feelings and empathize with them. For example, when the narrator says “I feared the sound of thunder more than anything,” the readers can see through her perspective and empathize with her fear of thunder. Additionally, the narrator realized, “I was brave. Brave people can’t be afraid of a sound.” When she says this phrase, the readers feel proud of her and happy for this realization she had. By reading her internal thinking, the readers can relate more to her and connect more with her character in the book.

In addition, the plot of the story was another reason why I loved this book. In this story, the sequence of the events created a perfect balance of engaging suspension for the readers. For example, the narrator sporadically checked the amount of times the thunder roared, correlating this quantity to how many miles away it was. By having the narrator count each number of times, the author created enough suspension to engage the readers throughout the duration of the story. The main idea of this story is that family is important in supporting one another and often times, you do not realize all of your qualities until someone tells you of them. ( )

Grandma looked at the horizon, drew a deep breath and said, "This is Thunder Cake baking weather, all right. Looks like a storm coming to me."
