This is a beautifully bound gift edition of this touching and wise classic. A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. "Please," asks the stranger, "draw me a sheep." And the pilot realizes that when life's events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries. He pulls out pencil and paper...Thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed the world forever for its readers.

A quirky little bedtime story to help children use their imagination

csbryant May 22, 2011

The Little Prince is a beloved children’s book. For some reason, I have never read it until now. I remember seeing the original French in my grade 2 classroom and being intrigued by the pictures, but I never actually picked it up.

de Saint-Exupéry first encounters the Little Prince in the Sahara desert six years before he wrote his book. While only a child, the Little Prince is full of much wisdom. He teaches de Saint-Exupéry to look beyond the obvious and take in the bigger picture, to rid his heart of prejudice, and cease to be narrow-minded.

The Little Prince is full of wonder and amazement. He never ceases asking questions. He is always seeking to obtain more knowledge. He represents the child in all of us; he is pure and full of love. The Little Prince is the story of how we are all kids at heart. Inside of every grown-up concerned with “matters of consequence” is a child struggling to break free.
