Dinosaur Thunder

By Marion Dane Bauer

An imaginative story of a little boy who conquers his fear of thunder!

When lightning flares in the faraway sky, and clouds growl like lions waking, big brother Chad is thrilled by the coming storm. But not little Brannon. He looks for a place to hide. Each adult tries to calm Brannon in turn, by comparing the thunder to something that's not scary.

"It's only a big cat purring," Daddy says. But Brannon has once been frightened by a cat--and again, he runs to take cover. It's not until the thunder is compared to dinosaurs that Brannon loses his fear. He knows all about dinosaurs. He loves them, and always wanted to see one. Now, he finds himself comforting himself--and his big brother--as he Clomps and he Stomps and he Rages and Rumbles with with all the ferocity of Dinosaur Thunder!

Lyrical writing with powerful emotional resonance will inspire the youngest reader to take charge of their wildest fears!
