Book #34 The Little Prince

Mary Anneliese and I just finished the Antoine De Saint-Exupery classic The Little Prince. This book has been on my list of books to read for a long time. In fact, I have started it and put it down several times, so I chose it as our read-aloud book so that it would force me to go ahead and finish it. This is a complex book, if you are reading it for its full meaning. On the surface, it reads like a children’s book, and, in fact, MA enjoyed reading it. She fully understood the plot and the mystical dialogue, but I’m sure she only understood it on an eight-year-old level. Reading it as an adult, I could see the much deeper meaning and the reason it is deemed a classic. I am glad I read it, but I know that to get the full force of the underlying meaning that I’m going to have to read it again.
