Three ways to enjoy the story of The Little Prince

October 9, 2019

This is a gifted partnership

A few years ago I discovered the wonderful story of The Little Prince. A book that one of the children had brought home from the school library for us to enjoy at bedtime. From that first time reading the book I fell in love with the story and it has been one that we have enjoyed time and time again.

Today I wanted to share with you three ways you can enjoy The Little Prince story, each offering their own way of interpreting the story and bringing it to life.

The Little Prince Story

A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. “Please,” asks the stranger, “draw me a sheep.” And the pilot realizes that when life’s events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries. He pulls out pencil and paper . . .

Thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed the world forever for its readers.

Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. At the heart of it all is a Little Girl and her mother who is preparing her for the world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbour, The Aviator. The Aviator introduces The Little Girl to his new friend The Little Prince, and a world where anything is possible.

The acclaimed film features voice work by Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, and Ricky Gervais.

The story starts with a little girl and her mum waiting for an interview for admission to Werth Academie. The mum is prepping the little girl about what to say and how she needs to be focused on the future. The interview doesn’t go well so the mum opts to move into the school catchment area in order for the little girl to attend Werth Academie.

Her mum wants the little girl to succeed so unveils a board detailing all the tasks she needs to complete, every minute of her day is mapped out for her. (The stationery addict in me was craving a board like that for my house). As she heads out to work leaving the little girl at home to study, the little girl soon notices the aviator leaving next door.

The aviator opens up a whole new world to the little girl, including the story of The Little Prince.

The Little Prince Netflix Original Film is available to view on Netflix.
