What do the most famous of children’s books tell us?

The Little Prince children's books

The Little Prince

“People can only see the truth with their heart”

Little Prince, published in 1943 and whose importance increases each day, does not base itself on a single point in giving a lesson. The book, which focuses mostly on the changes that growth brings out in people, explains that those innocent emotions felt as a child must not disappear. Our prince, who is thought to be drawing a hat when he is drawing a cobra swallowing an elephant, who shares what he knows and sees with disappointment, takes us to the stars.

The Little prince, who has to go to other planets due to the whim of rose which began to grow by change on his planet, comes across many people in characters we see often in daily life, and points out negative feelings from vanity to avarice. The book, with lines such as “Conceited people never hear anything but praise”, “What makes the desert beautiful, is that somewhere it hides a well” holds a place in the importance of the love of books. The book, written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has something to teach everyone, big end small.

  • This blog is definitely rather handy since I’m at the moment creating an internet floral website – although I am only starting out therefore it’s really fairly small, nothing like this site. Can link to a few of the posts here as they are quite. Thanks much. Zoey Olsen
