Activity Overview

In this activity, students will examine the author’s point of view in The Little Prince and identify ways this view is unique in understanding elements of the story. While the story focuses on the adventures of the Prince and the Aviator, it's told from the perspective of the narrator, who relates these adventures to us as the reader.

  • The narrator talks directly to the prince.
  • The narrator talks to the reader.
  • The narrator is telling the aviator’s story.
  • The narrator is telling the prince's story.

As an extended activity, ask students to think about what the story would be like if it was told from a different point of view. Students can retell a scene or even the entire story from the point of view of the Prince!
