Halley Came to Jackson

1 rating: 5.0
A book by Mary Chapin Carpenter

As she did in Dreamland: A Lullaby, Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Carpenter brings her image-rich lyrics to a picture-book audience, this time focusing on Halley's comet and the awe it evokes in the people of Jackson, Miss., as they sight it in 1910. … see full wiki

A Tale About The Comet.

  • Sep 16, 2006
Rating:
+5
Inspired by the writings of Eudora Welty, Mary Chapin Carpenter wrote the song "HALLEY CAME TO JACKSON". Like many songs, someone decided the lyrics to the song would make a good children's book. Thus, HALLEY CAME TO JACKSON is an illustrated book of lyrics. But what a beautiful book it is! The story in the book revolves around a father and his baby girl living in Jackson, Mississippi in 1910 during the visit of Halley's Comet. The illustrations are spectacular, capturing the warmth of the small town and a father's love for his daughter. The illustrations would make wonderful pictures to hang on a wall somewhere. I picked this book up because it reminded me of the times my family and I went to see Halley's Comet in 1985-1986. I'd recommend the book for fans of Carpenter's or for anyone who has seen the Comet.
