When lightning flares and clouds growl like lions waking, Brannon looks for a place to hide. Each adult tries to calm Brannon by comparing the thunder to something that's not scary. 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 have one for his own. Now, he comforts himself—and his big brother—as he clomps and stomps and rages and rumbles with all the ferocity of Dinosaur Thunder!
