The story focuses on how grown-ups are only interested in figures or matters of very little importance in life, in which the Little Prince cannot understand.Story highlights how most grown-ups miss out on the simple things in life, such as friendship, love and the beauty of the world because they are too occupied with gaining wealth and power. They are tricked into believing that figures or having money is important, but their life has no meaning.

The Little Prince is a TL novel by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I would use this book for storytelling in a classroom grade 3-8, preferably 5th grade. This novel won the Retro Hugo Award for Best Novella. This book follows a prince who is visiting planets in space and learning many life lessons along the way. It teaches students about love, friendship, and other important themes. #UCFLAE3414F19

katiehamlin Here is a link to the webpage that has a lesson plan I would use if reading this book in my classroom. varsitytutors.com/englishteacher/little-prince-lesson-plans 2w
katiehamlin The ESOL strategy I would use for this book is 24 (incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners in your curriculum). This novel has been translated into 300 languages and dialect, so you could use a copy of the book of the students native language in order to help them comprehend more. 2w
katiehamlin The UDL strategy i would use is 2.5 (illustrate through multiple media). There is a movie of this book so you could show scenes from the movie that correspond with the book in order to improve comprehension and engagement. 2w

Bookwomble Ok, let's see what we can do here ... You read "The Little Prince", which is one of David Bowie's top 100 books, so there's a connection to David. David's final album is "Black Star"✴, on which track 2 is " 'Tis a Pity She was a Whore". Loop closed! ??‍? 2w

Absolutely delightful: its classic status is well-earned. It reminded me of an inverted Alice in Wonderland: instead of traveling to an imaginary world, the Little Prince comes from a far-away land to look at what hides beneath the surface of our own world. There are great lessons about the power of empathy, devotion, and why you must never catch yourself thinking like a grown-up.

batsy Lovely review! 💙 It's got a strangeness about it that I love, but it's also deeply moving. 2w
Billypar @batsy Thanks! Yeah, it's not easy to be both strange and moving, but I completely agree. The prince's viewpoint is so interesting and you get to know him more than the average children's book character. 2w
Tanisha_A Great review! It's so deeply moving like @batsy said, and definitely something to read over and over to keep in mind the basics of life ('cause sometimes I forget). 2w

My rule for the Cup of Unread Authors is I can't draw a new name until I've read one work from the previous name drawn. And the latest author could not be more different from the last pick of Hunter S. Thompson.
Never came across the tagged book growing up, but looking forward to it from all the love it gets.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Love the idea! But personally not a fan of the Little Prince. 1mo
Billypar @thegirlwiththelibrarybag It's only my 4th pick, but I haven't had the best luck with my first three. My favorite was Pablo Neruda, and that one was good, not great. 1mo

I enjoyed this book but I'm a little disappointed that I didn't love it. I sometimes find with classics that I'm left wondering whether I've missed something because I didn't love it. I read this while commuting so potentially I did miss something as I kept nodding off thanks to my 19 month old who doesn't sleep through. The message was sweet and I loved the dedication. My copy also included Letter to a Hostage which I found moving.

DivineDiana I felt the same way. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1mo
tpixie Sometimes I think it‘s just the timing of when we read it. This book has moved me so much and I don‘t know why and it still evokes very strong emotions from me as a 79-year-old woman. Oh my God I‘m 59! Lol. I loved a wrinkle in time is a child but when I read it as an adult before the movie came out it did not grab me like it had previously. 2w
Victoria_Clyne I totally agree @tpixie The first time I read The Inheritance of Loss I didn't really enjoy but the second time around was a different story. 2w
tpixie @Victoria_Clyne isn‘t that interesting? I guess that means we are different people at different times of our lives. Having our experiences mold us differently along the way. ♥️😊📚♥️ 2w

I‘m currently learning French and I thought I‘d kill two birds with one stone — read this classic I‘ve never read before and read it in French. I bought the audiobook that has it in French and English, so I first read along and listened in French, then listened in English while reading in French. Very helpful and such a great story! I can‘t wait to read it to Jace when he gets older. 🇫🇷

I re-read The Little Prince every few yrs. It‘s a sentimental book for me because my French teacher loved it & had us read it in h.s. One of my treasured books is the French version, bought back before amazon, but I don‘t remember enough French to read that version anymore. The tragedy of Saint-Exupery‘s life always makes me sad.

“People where you live, the little prince said, grow five thousand roses in one garden... Yet they don't find what they're looking for... And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose.”

and

“You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.”

Some of my favorite quotes from this “kids“ book. If you haven't read The Little Prince I highly recommend it. A moving story that you will find new meaning in with every read.

A in Potions NEWTs: 3.5⭐️

It‘s quirky and has a lot of charm but for how short of a book this was, it took me a long time to read. It was hard for me to stay awake the first 20 pages but once the little prince started talking about the planets he visited, I was able to get into it. I think there‘s many a good lesson for young readers and I can see how it‘s resonated with so many people growing up.

#BigInJapan #WanderingJune
I found a Japanese site showing the bestsellers for May of 2019. It wasn't translated, so I could only recognize two. One was Killing Commendatore, which wasn't surprising, but I wouldn't have expected the tagged book. Apparently The Little Prince is so popular there is an entire museum devoted to it (!)
@BarbaraBB @Cinfhen

Billypar In other internet searches, I tried to find if Tom Waits was ever actually popular in Japan. I didn't get an answer, but did find that some creative person adapted the song into a classic Nintendo score: https://uproxx.com/music/the-8-bit-tribute-to-tom-waits-is-big-in-japan-and-ever... 5mo

"What moves me so deeply, about this little prince who is sleeping here, is his loyalty to a flower – the image of a rose that shines through his whole being like the flame of a lamp, even when he is asleep…"

This book reminded me of a Twilight Zone episode. The weirdness of the story made it rather enjoyable. I think it shows us that the things we think are really important, mean nothing. We get so dedicated to one thing we don‘t see the absurdity of it. The things we invest time in will mean the most to us.

🧁The Little Prince. I read it when I was studying french in sixth form and have since bought copies in English. The story was so simple yet complex and beautiful. 💕
🧁Every morning. Just in case a burglar breaks in while I'm out and thinks I'm untidy 🙈

I just had a student ask me what books I would recommend that feel like this one, that talk about love, and are inspiring. What would you recommend?

saresmoore Gosh, what a great question. A Wrinkle in Time and Mrs. Dalloway (really any Woolf) each strike a similar chord for me, but I‘m not sure if that‘s what they‘re looking for. 8mo
Centique Maybe The Happy Prince by Oscar Wilde if they don‘t mind short stories. We used to love the audio of that and it still touches me like The Little Prince 8mo
Centique Or they might be in that soul searching stage when someone like Mitch Albom really appeals 8mo
ReadingEnvy @saresmoore @Centique I needed more time to talk to him to really know what it was he liked. I ended up suggesting another book by the same author, Coelho, and Milan Kundera. I dunno. He's a sweet student and I'm just happy when they read outside of their course work!! 8mo
Centique @ReadingEnvy those sound perfect! I was thinking Coelho but wasn‘t sure as he gets such a bad rap lately. I still loved him in my student days - especially Veronika Decides to Die. 😊 8mo

The planets are cool and although I think kids would like it, I don‘t think the suicide at the end would be appropriate at all. Maybe just read the chapters with the fun planets.

The language was exciting and engaging. The characters were well developed.

Adventurous story with a meaningful message about learning the meaning of life. Pictures are simple but fit well with the story.
