Sonjo & the Thundergod by Shirley Barrie
When the Thundergod loses the ohesos (belly buttons) in his thunderdrum and can't make thunder, he tries to steal Sonjo's belly button. Sonjo and his mother manage to trap the Thundergod in the laundry but without thunder there is no rain and the rice crop withers. Sonjo makes the connection between thunder and rain and saves the crop.
