Did I read this book 3 times and cry every time?? Yes I did.
âPeople have forgotten this truth," the fox said. "But you mustn‘t forget it. You become responsible forever for what you‘ve tamed. You‘re responsible for your rose.â
Thank you @Vansa for this pick!! #trappedonanisland
My anxiety has been on high all day, so I went into this blind, looking for something light-hearted. Well, I‘m in tears again â but at least this is another off my list and a great read!
The story was simple yet complex. The analogies of life and the differences between children and grown ups I felt were very true. As an adult sometimes it feels like the world loses some of its magic when you are doing an everyday routine. Exploring and learning new things is still very important (ex: hobbies and self care.). This book reminded me that it is never to late to keep discovering yourself as a person.
1. Art, polymath, history, iconic
2. Yes, the tagged. I also have Les Fluers du Mal by Charles Baudelaire but I haven‘t tackled it yet
3. All of them! ð But right now, probably Storytellers. It‘s on my #12challenge
3. Storyteller by Dave Grohl
The Little Prince is probably not a children‘s book, but more a teen‘s book, and a book for adults who need to remember the child inside them. A pop-up book is fun for all ages!
The story of how to tame a fox is very important! As is the scary drawing at the beginning.
Who else loves The Little Prince like I do!! ðð
This is a body painting I did a couple of weeks ago inspired on the book! What do you think, guys?!
I would LOVE to keep on creating body paintings or art inspired on books!

Here I will note 365 books (or as many as I will have before I get tired) that have shaped my taste in literature. No explanations, no reviews. Just the cover of the book.
I do not challenge anyone. You are all welcome to take part.
Here‘s my first #MiddleGradeMarch book. It is for the prompt âa book older than me.â I listened to the audiobook and I am so glad I did because the narrator was French which was delightful for me to hear. My father taught me a few words in French, then I studied it in school/college. I loved this book! There were so many good lessons. 18 #BookSpin #23 #BFC22 #AClassicAMonth #ChildrensClassic #ReadYourShelf #MGMarchThroughTime #Buzzwordathon
In our French class, we have to make presentations about French culture and of course, I picked a book as the subject for my presentation. Technically, I didn‘t need to read the book but I‘m so thankful that I did because I loved it. The way it was written was wonderful and though I never read this book as a child, it gave me a strange but great sense of nostalgia.
âAny ordinary person walking past my rose would think she was just like you. But she is much more important than all of you put together, because she‘s the one I watered. She‘s the one I sheltered under a glass dome, she‘s the one whose caterpillars I killed (except for the two or three for the butterflies). She‘s the one I listened to complaining, or boasting, or even being silent. Because she‘s my rose.â
As the little prince continued on his journey, he reflected that all the others - the king, the show-off, the drunkard and the businessman - would look down on this man.
âAnd yet, he‘s the only person I don‘t find ridiculous. Maybe it‘s because he‘s looking after something other than himself.â
âIf I commanded a general to flit from one flower to another like a butterfly, or to write a tragedy, or to turn into a sea bird, and if the general disobeyed my orders, who would be in the wrong, him or me?â
âIt would be you,â said the little prince with certainty.
âCorrect. One must only ask of a person what he can give.â
âIt is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.â
Somehow I had made it 44 years without reading this sweet story. My mom gifted me these lovely earrings for Christmas, but I couldn‘t wear them until I read the story!
[The salesclerk] sold pills invented to quench thirst. Swallow one a week and you no longer feel any need to drink.
âWhy do you sell these pills?â
âThey save so much time,â the salesclerk said. âExperts have calculated that you can save 53 minutes a week.â
âAnd what do you do with those 53 minutes?â
âWhatever you like.â
âIf I had 53 minutes to spend as I liked,â the little prince said to himself, âI‘d walk very slowly toward a water fountainâ¦â
I‘ve just finished Joann Sfar‘s new take on The Little Prince. I liked the art very much, and it was certainly very brave of him to redraw the prince, as the original illustrations are so well-loved, but I‘m probably too old and jaded to fully enjoy the story.
Look what I found - my mum‘s 1954 vinyl, Read by GÃ©rard Philippe!
It‘s been a long time since I last wept - not cried, but wept - but this book fixed that real quick. It took me half an hour to read the last 10 pages, because of the tears. Literally just sat and sobbed after finishing it. This book needs to be read, because it reminds us what‘s really important in life. So I‘d just like to say thank you, Mr. Saint-Exupery. Your book truly brightened my life. (And broke my heart!)
