"The Little Prince" is in my top 5 reads of all time, and I'm an English teacher, so one can imagine how much I read.      Antoine de Saint-Exupery penned a timeless tale of love in reflection in the guise of a beautifully illustrated children's story. At the heart of the story is the painful lesson learned by one who had love but did not understand at the time. Sadness and regret permeate the hidden story beneath the words. Children will have fun meeting crazy …

Slight spoiler alert...Matters of consequence! The grownups are only concerned with matters of consequence. But what really is consequential? What's the point of owning the stars of the sky? They're there for everyone to enjoy. What's the point of a pill that saves you 20 minutes by getting rid of your thirst?   Of course what's really important are the people we love--the people we choose to spend our time with. What else could be more important? Saint-Exupery boils down …

Sad whimsy. Interesting in the French original. Got some quaint and often melancholic moments.

Such a fun story. Reminds me of my years in High School French.

This is one of the best educational children's book. If you really want to have a diligent child, read this book for him... you can also read something else and maybe they will learn to try green eggs.

"The essential is invisible to the eye. Only the heart can see clearly." - the essence of the book. I've held on to this book for decades

A charming tale of learning "what is important is invisible to the eye." Some of the best life lessons to learn come from this book. Share it with the child within you. It's even better when you read it aloud -- to yourself or another. Be charmed!

great childrens book.

Even with the simplest message, this is one of the most powerful books for children and adults alike. The innocence of the little prince in the big world. It is hard being a child and being misunderstood. This is definitely one of my "comfort" books.

One of the greatest books ever written? I think so. Thought-provoking, sweet, and memorable. One of those books I have to reread from time to time.

It starts with a little boy trying to draw an elephant that has been swallowed by a giant snake. Everyone said his sketch looked like a hat, so instead of becoming an artist, the boy became a pilot. His plane crashes in the desert and as he tries to repair it, a little prince arrives and asks him to draw a sheep. The prince lives on a small asteroid, one of many that he can visit, and each one contains a person with an exaggerated human characteristic.    There is the one with a single …
