Journey Around the Sun: The Story of Halley's Comet

In this book, Halley’s Comet tells a story from a unique point of view—its own. The journey of discovering Halley’s Comet goes back to the beginning of time for the human species, and the book serves as a historical timeline that highlights some of the ancient beliefs and cultures from various parts of the world from past times. Colourful illustrations blend with factual blurbs to provide scientific information in an accessible way. In a Grade K–9 classroom, this resource’s use of personification may lend itself well for a writer’s workshop for older students, and it may encourage students to extend their thinking about the history of Halley’s Comet and its interpretations throughout periods in human history.
