The Little Prince
I'm doing a 10-page paper based on the classic children's story "The Little Prince" by Antione De Saint-Exupery. I've had this copy for about 8 years now and I still read it every now and then. For those of you who may not be familiar with the book, it's about a pilot landing in the Sahara meeting a little prince. The stories the prince tells of his own planet are quite unforgettable.
What's so special about the novel is how it goes far beyond its narrative and tackles various themes about human nature and philosophy. The beautiful way the novel presents these themes makes both children and adults appreciate the lessons within the story.
I highly recommend this novel to anyone who likes to embrace their inner youth and appreciate good stories that universally reach out to both kids and adults. A must-read.
Have you read The Little Prince? Know someone who has?
