Saint-Exupery, Antoine de(1943)
The Little Prince
My favorite book as a young girl was The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, and it is still one of my favorites.
This is a book that can be read by both children and adults. It has a message of love that is true and touching, and it is a book that has stood the test of time.

Reader's comments about this book
I read excerpts of this book in high school French class. I recently read the whole book in English. It's a really great book, and it really makes you think. I highly recommend it.

I love this book. I read it since like fifth grade and I still appreciate it until now. I really get annoyed when someone in class says it's boring. It's not! The book is full of lessons, it makes me laugh, cry and think about life. How could that be boring??
I think the book is great... it has lots of things that you can learn. Although it looks really shallow, it actually has some really deep lessons wherein not only the children can relate but also the adults.

I read a lot, but the meaning of The Little Prince does not make sense to me. I fear that I have become a "grown-up," but the true meaning of this story was not lost on my daughter (who is two). Every night it is the first book that she chooses, and even though I don't understand, I will always read it to her, and be amazed at her understanding of it all.

This book is an ordinary story with an extraordinary lesson.
-Magnolia, Tacloban, Philippines
Little Prince is a good book. It gives maxims to those who scrutinized the whole story. Aside from that, it is also funny and cute. The illustrations drawn by the author let me enjoy it. I love the book!

I really love this book! When I first read it, I was touched.
I love this fairy tale from the first sight, it helps me to recall beautiful memories. Maybe we are all the little prince when we are young, but now we have lost this ability.

I read this story in French in high school and loved it - then I read it again in English and fell in love all over again...such a cute story!!!!!

I think this book is great. You learn together with the main character, the pilot. The Little Prince's views on life really make you think.

I have read this book time and time again. It has been 15 years and reading it again never fails to make me ponder and cry over the sadness of life's truths.
-rose anne dela cruz, san fernando pamp philippines
This book reminds me of someone who gave it to me as precious gift in my college years! The book correlates to all kinds of relationships in life and how we handle them both by heart & mind.

I think the "Little Prince" is an amazing book to read, not only for adults but for children too. I was really toched by this book.
-Erica, New Jersey
This book’s wisdom is in its metaphors. Each one can be fully appreciated and perceived in ways more than one. it is surprising that The Little Prince was stacked among the books in the children’s section of the bookstore. Its colorful illustrations may be one quality but the profound wisdom it imparts is far from the grasp of a child.
