Caroline’s Comets: A True Story

We rated this book:

Free!

In the late 1700s, it was nearly unheard of for women to be involved in the scientific fields. Caroline Herschel, however, despite her unremarkable childhood and scarred face, was destined to break the mold. As an adult, Caroline’s brother William brought her to Germany, where she kept house for him but also found her own life as a soprano singer and, eventually, an inventor and astronomer. She went on to discover comets, galaxies, and more and was the first woman ever to be paid as a scientist. This remarkable picture book by Emily Arnold McCully tells Caroline’s story, bringing this heroine to life for a generation of young readers. Caroline’s Comets will open the eyes of little ones to the possibilities that lie ahead in their own lives and give them someone to look up to. The illustrations are simple and straightforward, bringing the story to life, while excerpts from Caroline’s own diary help readers really understand what life was like for this woman.
