Little Prince Memo Pad


I can’t remember the very first time I laid eyes on Le Petit Prince. Growing up in Paris, I’m sure it was around me in many forms from the time I moved there at the age of four. I do remember, however, really reading it for the first time, and how it made me feel. I was in the fifth grade, still in Paris, and I remember feeling so utterly understood by this character, feeling so very connected to him. Childhood can be such a lonely time, and le Petit Prince captures it so beautifully. For many I believe it is the first experience with nostalgia and melancholy, a gateway to these feelings you continue to experience as an adolescent and as an adult.
