Introducing the Little Prince: Board Book Gift Set

Antoine de Saint-Exupery / Author Harcourt Children's Books $1

A pair of boxed sets allows youngest readers to tote favorite characters. Introducing the Little Prince: Board Book Gift Set contains a quartet of handsize board books cleverly adapted from Antoine de Saint-Exupery's novel and highlighting his artwork. I Am the Little Prince/Je Suis le Petit Prince unfolds with one line of English and its French translation per page, laying the groundwork for the novel from which they were sprung (""I live on a small planet""; ""Look at my beautiful flower!"" etc.). The other three unspool in English only: in A Day with the Little Prince, the boy cares for his planet (""He sweeps out the volcanoes""); tabbed pages highlight the fox he tames, the flower he tends and more in Friends of the Little Prince; and Counting with the Little Prince goes from ""One Little Prince"" up through ""Five planets.""
