The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I had read Antoine de Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince (aka Le Petit Prince) several times, in English as well as in its original French. The other day, I felt like reading it again.

For the uninitiated, The Little Prince is the story of an aviator whose plane breaks down in the Sahara. While repairing the plane, the aviator meets a young but wise person who has come to earth from Asteroid B-612. Through the little prince's stories about his travels throughout the universe, the aviator is reminded about the essential truths of the world that are known by youngsters and forgotten by grown-ups.

I enjoyed revisiting de Saint-Exupery's classic tale. The story was, obviously, familiar, but it was was a different experience reading the story as an adult (and the mother of almost grown children). It is important to be reminded that "it is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."

The Little Prince is a sweet and touching story. It is worth reading, or re-reading, in order to remember the things that grown-ups cannot remember.
