After I read ‘The Little Prince’, I realise that so many things in the world we cannot just look on the surface, it is the fox who teaches the Prince to see with one's heart instead of just with one's eyes.In the start of this book, the writer discusses his Drawing Number One, a picture that looks like a hat but is meant to a snake digesting an elephant. Adult always give a dull and uncreative answer, as they will never think deeply in the drawing and find the real truth and meaning of a thing , so they cannot see the real meaning of a drawing. Besids that , this book also remind me that the power, fame and wealth are not the most important things in the world . However, most of us spent the whole life to search those things and we lost the most beautful things – love and friendship . We just like the the railway switchman that the prince met ,
When we grown up , the heart of childhood will leave us and never back. And this book can help us to find our heart of child, also lead us to escape the false world that we live.
