Esteem for “The Little Prince”

The Little Prince

The Little Prince is French aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéery’s most famous novel.  He wrote it while he was living in Asharoken, New York.

This touching novel has been translated into more than 180 languages and has become one of the best selling books of all time.

 The Little Prince is a charming story about the encounter between Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and a prince living on “his small planet” and how they experience life and other people.

It is one of my all-time favorite books!

When you read it you’ll also realize it’s a story about living esteem.  The little prince is filled with the desire to take care of his small planet.  At the same he is open-heartedly ready for every challenge that life brings.

The Little Prince is a great lesson in appearance and reality, about having and simply being.  It’s a great lesson about esteem toward nature and people.

Reader reviews

Yesterday I listened to the story while enjoying the creative pop ups. The book is so creative and the story is very touching…a reminder to keep the child inside alive.

A beautiful story, which truly touches your heart. I had just seen the movie and immediately downloaded the book, which I had previously read, and was so happy to get reacquainted with the Little Prince.

Even though this story made me cry, it has taught me a lot about life. The imagery and the characters are amazing. It’s a must read!
