Fun with Books @ Urban Solace
Rediscover the Classics with Christina Daniels
Theatrical readings of the book by Jatin Prabhu
Every Saturday, we will use exciting activities, audiovisual clips, and readings to take our participants back to the classics. We will return to the era in which the book was written, understand the author, and unlock the plot.

Each of our classics is chosen from different cultures to introduce our participants to world literature.

We encourage children to read an abridged version of the book before each session. But a knowledge of the book is NOT essential to participate. We will get your child to have fun with the world of books, whether they have read the book or not.

The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The Little Prince is a novella written by the French Writer, Antoine De Saint-Exupéry. The story begins with the narrator remembering something he drew as a child. As per the narrator, the drawing consisted of an elephant inside the stomach of a snake. However, none of the adults around him understood it and claimed that it was simply a hat. They felt that since the narrator could not draw well, he should try his hand at another hobby. Then, the story comes to the present day.

Now, the narrator is grown up and has become a pilot. His plane crashes in the Sahara Desert. Here, he meets a small man whom he calls the little prince. Little prince narrates various tales about his home such as a little asteroid with three volcanoes and different plants. He also tells the narrator about his journeys to different asteroids ruled by strange conceited men.

Through these, the writer satirizes the loss of inquisitiveness and strangeness in the adults. Many critics say that The Little Prince is symbolic of the writer's own life where he constantly searched for his lost childhood and its certainties. Though The Little Prince is as popular as a children's book, it can be enjoyed by adults as well. The book was published in 2011 by General Book Depot and is available in paperback.

Key Features:

The Little Prince is the most read and most translated book in the French Language. It has been translated into two fifty languages and dialects with annual sales of approximately two million copies. It has become one of the bestselling books ever published with total sales of over one forty million worldwide.
