Draw Me a Sheep
Updated: Sep 22, 2020
In this blog, we're going to focus on another elementary school classic, "The Little Prince" by Antoine De Saint-Exupéry. I personally think this book is good for kids and adults who are young at heart.
The book starts with a man deciding to fly his plane into the desert, but when he gets there, he crashes with limited resources. Then, he falls asleep in the middle of nowhere and awakes to a little boy asking him, "Please... draw me a sheep...". The pilot can not draw a sheep, so he draws a crate instead and says the sheep is inside. The boy is pleased, and the pilot wants to know more about him since he seems special.
I would give "The Little Prince" 3 out of 5 stars because I enjoyed the first stories the boy told the pilot (especially the tales about his rose), but wasn't as interested in the stories he told in the second half of the book. "The Little Prince" is a classic because the boy shows that even though some adults think kids are too young to help, they actually have a larger scope for imagining than most adults have. This different perspective kids bring can sometimes be helpful to distract from the problems you're facing and instead help you focus on the happy things in life that matter.
Please write what you think of the book in the comments.
