Dictation #1 B
The thunder in the storm is the sound that scares Sandy. When she hears the loud noise, she cries for her mother. Since Sandy is only three, the thunder scares her more than it scares her brother, Thor. Since Thor is thirteen and already a teenager, he is not so scared of thunder. That is why Thor tries to comfort Sandy if their mother is busy. Thor thinks of what will turn Sandy’s tears into smiles and then he sings simple songs to her so she does not think of the thunder but rather smiles at her brother’s simple songs.
