This is a beautiful story that appears to be simple but contains a life’s worth of lessons. (And in only 83 pages! Win.)
While some may view The Little Prince as a children’s book, it serves as a reminder to adults to keep our minds and hearts open. In a time when society seems to be heading backwards as regards to our acceptance and sense of responsibility to each other, we could all use our own little prince to come along and refocus our priorities.
This is a short review, but The Little Prince will stay with me through time. It truly spoke to my heart, and, as a consequence, I will smile every time I look to the stars.
“Good-bye,” said the fox. “Here is my secret. It’s quite simple: One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.”
