Kid’s Book Review: Cosmic Wonder

About the Book and Author / Illustrator

The first time the comet visited Earth, nobody noticed. Well, almost nobody…’ This is an exciting exploration of the Earth’s changes and developments – both good and bad – from the unique perspective of an ever-returning comet, whose passing was first recorded in 240 BC. With each orbit, readers will see the changes in Earth and its creatures, paying close attention to the history of human evolution.

Told with wonder and brought to life with striking illustrations by rising talent Ashley Benham-Yazdan, this books asks young readers, what will the Earth look like when the comet next returns?

Ashley Benham-Yazdani is a picture book author/illustrator and nature lover. She is passionate about arts education and has taught illustration courses at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and at Towson University.



Book Review

I learned what a comet and a meteor is

This was a good book. I learned what a comet and a meteor is and lots of things about Halley’s Comet.

I like the pictures. The scenery is nice and it looks very real.

I like at the back of the book that it tells you about Halley’s comet and other things, the things in the book that are hard to understand.

It is clever the way the author wrote about how the comet keeps coming back to earth and every time it passes our planet it has changed.
