Did I read this book 3 times and cry every time?? Yes I did.

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 — 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.

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.

Here‘s my first #MiddleGradeMarch book. It is for the prompt “a book older than me.” 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.

“Any 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.”

quote
Lovelylottereader
The Little Prince (Illustrated) | Antoine de Saint-Exupry

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.
“And yet, he‘s the only person I don‘t find ridiculous. Maybe it‘s because he‘s looking after something other than himself.”

quote

The Little Prince (Illustrated) | Antoine de Saint-Exupry

“If 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?”
“It would be you,” said the little prince with certainty.
“Correct. One must only ask of a person what he can give.”

February's rolls for me. I am excited to read The Little Prince with my daughter. We started last night. 😁

Nelnjali Oh, The Little Prince is so amazing. I first read it in one of my education classes in college, and I was blown away by the profound little book. It is still one of my favorites. 2y

[The salesclerk] sold pills invented to quench thirst. Swallow one a week and you no longer feel any need to drink.
“Why do you sell these pills?”
“They save so much time,” the salesclerk said. “Experts have calculated that you can save 53 minutes a week.”
“And what do you do with those 53 minutes?”
“Whatever you like.”
“If I had 53 minutes to spend as I liked,” the little prince said to himself, “I‘d walk very slowly toward a water fountain…”

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 Gérard 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!)

WJCintron Your review of the book is so relatable. I read this one in school. It was mandatory. I LOVED it, and also cried. I need to re-read it, now that I'm an adult, but because I know I'll cry a LOT, I've been avoiding it. lol
I'm glad you loved it so much. I can't agree more with what you said at the end.
Did you watch the TV show? It was a cartoon. Not the movie, but the old TV show. Beautiful work that stays with you for a lifetime.

TH3F4LC0N Thnx! I‘m glad to see this book seems to have the same effect on everyone who reads it! And no, I haven‘t seen any of the adaptations of it; I‘ve heard the Netflix movie is good tho. I‘ll have to check out the tv show. 2y
