The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Nelson Villamor recommends this book because…

The Little Prince, written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery in 1943, is an all time favorite book by many. It is a critique to the world of grown ups, a world enclosed in certain frameworks and close mindedness, minding oneself and one's business and forgetting about the richness that exists around. The book presents a search for important things like friendship, love, and care for the others. The author presents a journey of finding and building an authentic relationships in a simple way, not like how grown-ups complicates things.

Our relationship with God also sometimes gets complicated in trying to put together theology, life, our own deep personal experiences. We all have our journey toward God and we can learn a lot from the little Prince on how to get closer to God and appreciate the love that He has with us through our many relationships with other people.


Moral allegory and spiritual autobiography, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the French language. With a timeless charm it tells the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the vagaries of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal odyssey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures
