Though this adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved novella is not entirely faithful to its source text, the profound life lessons of the original remain intact. The Little Prince, in both iterations, teaches kids and adults alike about embracing interpersonal relationships, coping with loss, and valuing connectedness and wonder over the ‘essential’ adult trappings of structure, caution and conformity, writes ADOLFO ARANJUEZ . www.screeneducation.com.au
