Sharing Your Favorites


Sometimes, there are books that stay with you. My all-time favorite book has to be The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This classic children’s tale, translated from French into hundreds of other languages, deals with love, loss, and other huge life themes in a way that’s accessible to children of all ages.

For a long time, I held my favorite book selfishly (and maybe slightly shamefully, as an adult who loved a children’s book so much), not sharing it with anyone. Slowly, though, I began to open up. I gave copies to family members. I told people that it was my favorite book.

This holiday season, my plan is to donate a few copies of this book to an as-yet-to-be-decided agency that gives gifts out to local families.

What’s your favorite book…and how do you share it with others?
