Thunder Cake | Patricia Polacco

Every single time I shelve this book, I think it reads “Murder Cake.” 😂

Went for a walk and the sky was split in two by the lovely British Summer Weather. Sunny, scattered cloud skies to the East and Thunder storms and rain to the West. It was very blustery but the wind pushed me home and just in time

Just a Thunderstorm | Mercer Mayer, Gina Mayer
post image

Cleo is almost 9 and just decided that she is going to be afraid of rain and thunder. She keeps looking up at the ceiling and shaking. When we don‘t have enough sympathy for her she runs to the bathroom to hide. She didn‘t appreciate my reading “It‘s Just A Thunderstorm” to her. 🤷🏼‍♀️I don‘t know why #cleopatraboodog #littlecritter #mercermayer #thunderstorm

AmyG Awwww sweet boy. 3y
TheSpineView Poor baby! 3y
xicanti Poor Cleo! My Hannah was the same way. I had to make sure she had a clear path to crawl under my bed whenever the thunder struck. 3y

PurpleTulipGirl We have used Thundershirts to some success. Rescue Remedy has been helpful for some of my friends. Dogs are sensitive to noise and pressure changes. It‘s hard to soothe them without encouraging the behavior. (edited) 3y
katy4peas @PurpleTulipGirl Oh, thanks for the suggestions. We been hesitant about the thunder shirt causing her more anxiety because she doesn't like to wear things like that.. and I don't know anyone who actually uses one. Rescue Remedy is new to me, but I like that idea as well. 👍 Thunder never bothered her, but she must have had a bad experience when she was home alone at some point and now it freaks her out and seems to be getting worse. 3y
PurpleTulipGirl It might be helpful to try her in the thunder shirt when it‘s not storming, to see if she‘d like it. Treats help. Rescue Remedy can help mellow her out a smidge, as might CBD stuff if you live where that‘s legal. (Disclaimer: Not a vet, just sharing what I‘ve experienced and heard from friends.) 3y

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.

“Before I left my bed in the morning, little Adèle came running in to tell me that the great horse chestnut at the bottom of the orchard had been struck by lightning in the night, and half of it split away.” #thunderstorms are used not just for @Sarah83 but for deep symbolism in this most classic of #litsyclassics. (This illustration from my edition is from much later in the story than the quote.)
