Little girl is very scared of thunder storm. Her grandmother wants to help her to get over the fear of the threatens by baking the thunder cake. Illustration is little unique, because the characters has pale white face. For me, it almost was little scary to look at the book. This book reminds me of my childhood experience. It’s the true story of the authour’s childhood experience with her grandmother.
As reading this book, I realized that this book can be the sweet story book for children to recall their memory when they grow up. This book doesn’t really have diversity perspective, but it has sweet and beautiful story that is heart warming. I think parents should read this to their children to give them beautiful memories.
