"All grown-ups were once children--although few
of them remember it."
- The narrarator used to draw pictures of Boa Constrictors, and whenever he would show them to adults, they would always think that it was a hat. As an adult, he crash lands in the middle of the desert, where he soon meets a quaint, little boy (the Little Prince.) He never answers questions, only answers them. He is from asteroid B612. We hear about all of his adventures to other planets. The Little Prince exposes the ignorance that accompanies an incomplete and narrow-minded perspective.

Through a combination of exploring the world and exploring their own feelings, the narrator and the little prince come to understand more clearly their own natures and their places in the world.

The Little Prince teaches that the responsibility demanded by relationships with others leads to a greater understanding and appreciation of one’s responsibilities to the world in general. What differentiates adults from children in The Little Prince? Is the distinction simply one of age, or is it based on something else?

Do you think when you're "older," you'll remember everything from when you were a child? Can you even remember details of kindergarten; which seemed so important whilst
they were happening? 1. Read the CLASSROOM COPY of Ch.1

2. Answer each discussion question in
complete sentences.

This is a test grade. Read each expectation
thoroughly to receive the maximum
amount of credit possible. Turn into
the correct box before the bell. The Little Prince - One of the two protagonists of the story. After leaving his home planet and his beloved rose, the prince journeys around the universe, ending up on Earth. Frequently perplexed by the behavior of grown-ups, the prince symbolizes the hope, love, innocence, and insight of childhood that lie dormant in all of us. Though the prince is sociable and meets a number of characters as he travels, he never stops loving and missing the rose on his home planet The Narrator - A lonely pilot who, while stranded in the desert, befriends the little prince. They spend eight days together in the desert before the little prince returns to his home planet. Although he is discouraged from drawing early in his life because adults cannot understand his drawings, the narrator illustrates his own story and makes several drawings for the little prince. The narrator is a grown-up, but his view of the world is more like a child’s than an adult’s. After the little prince departs, the narrator feels both refreshed and saddened.
