Thunder Cake | Patricia Polacco
Pickpick

This picture book has amazing illustrations that shows exactly what is going on in the book. It also uses some diversity language by calling grandma “babushka“. There is no stereotyping in this book and i love that it leaves the thunder cake recipe in the back of the book.

I would use this book in my classroom on a cloudy, stormy day. I would have the children draw pictures of their thunder cake and the ingredients to make it.

This realistic fiction picture book is a great opportunity for an author study. It‘s a story about a grandma teaching her granddaughter to bake a cake when storms come.

Patricia Polacco's grandparents were from Russia and she writes of them fondly in many of her books. #backintheussr #rockinmay @Cinfhen
