The Little Prince 2

12 04 2011

After traveling to several planets and meeting a series of grown-ups that baffled the him, The little prince has finally arrived on Earth.  He’s met a tiny snake that claims to be more powerful than a king, a flower that seems terribly unaware, an echo that confuses the prince, and a whole garden full of roses that make the prince feel ordinary and unworthy of being a prince.

In his short time on Earth, the little prince has already begun to seem like a different person.  He is no longer as optimistic, as happy, or as curious.

Tell me how has Earth, and these creatures he’s met there, changed the little prince?

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?  Why?

The creatures that the Little Prince met on Earth changed him. One bug change was that it made the little Prince realize that he wasn’t all that. For example the prince thought he had a lot. But, seeing Earth made him think about that. Although, this change is good, because its part of growing up and you should never be vain of yourself, no matter how old you are or who you are.

I agree with you. He does finally see the way the world works.

Claire i think you might have spelled big wrong. Its in the beginning sentence. It says bug and i think you might have spelled it wrong. other than that i agree with what you have to say. 🙂

Earth has changed him by saying,” You’re to old to be a kid, so grow up. Nothing is perfect in life and you need to figure that out. Your flower might be the only one on your planet, but not down here. You might have three volcanoes that reach your knee but we have thousands that go miles and miles over your head. Life is not what you want, but it is what you need. So, it is best if life started for you. Your time as a child is done now.” It is a good thing life is starting for him, because it shows we all have to grow up at one point, just at different times. This is the message Earth and life is trying to give the Little Prince.

I think Earth should let kids be kids for longer…

L agree l think child years should go on longer because we don’t want to loose your imagination.

I think the same thing.Why can’t be we want to be and do what we want to do.We should it would be better of all of us would be a lot different.And we won’t loose our imagination.

I get what you are saying but I dont think it was a good thing that the Earth changed the little prince. I think that it was a very bad thing because now he isnt unique. Just think now he wont be the same and think in the same positive attitude.

Earth has really changed the Little Prince. Now he sees that the world isn’t perfect. For example, when he meets all of the roses. The Little Prince thought his flower was so special. In reality though, she was just a common rose. I’m sure the prince felt betrayed because she told him she was the only one of her kind in the galaxy. His opinion about the extinct volcano changed too. Before he used to say ” You never know if it will erupt,” , but he’s starting to believe it is forever extinct. Now he is beginning to notice how the real world works. In a way, this is good for the Little Prince because he is maturing. It’s also a little sad though because he never really wanted to act like a grown-up.

The little prince is getting sadder and sadder the more he explores Earth. He thought his flower was spectacular but then he found more tons of flowers just in one garden that were just like his. Before he raked his volcano because you never know, it might erupt again but now he says its probably permanently extinct He almost never says grown ups are silly anymore. I think that hes becoming a grown up hes just starting to realize that he and his flower aren’t as special anymore. Its not good that hes changing but its not bad at the same time since everyone changes at some point in their life.

The earth has changed the little prince in many ways. When he meets the snake he realizes that not even a king isn’t as powerful as nature or life itself. I think that this is teaching him what he thinks could begin to happen as he approaches becoming an adult. The flower is affecting him by saying that being part of nature is better than being a human, she thinks because she has roots. The echo makes him think that all adults are boring and not creative because with the echo he thinks adults are talking to him. the roses make him think that nothing is one of a kind everything like his flower are ordinary. I think this is good because when he meets real adults he will be surprised that some are fun and creative.

Earth has changed the little prince in many ways. When he met the snake he became afraid of what was going to happen to him when he grows old. When he met the flower he thught how useless he was without “roots”. He then meet “the echo” and wondered why everyone repeated what he said because on his planet the “flower” spoke first. Then he met the roses which he thught he had the only one of but found out there were many. Considering Earth had everything he had back on his planet he believed that he wasn’t important and wasn’t much of a prince after all. This is how I believed Earth has changed the little prince

Hailey, I totally agree with what you said about Earth changing the little prince in all the ways you explained.

That was how i felt the Earth change the little prince too. I dont think it was a very good thing that the Earth change him.

12 04 2011
Alex Reynolds

It has changes him by making him see life in a different perspective.A more serious perspective. Now he believes that one of his volcanoes is really extinct.He also realized that his special flower was really just an ordinary rose. I don’t think this is a good thing because he is becoming more and more of a grown-up than a child. The Little Prince made it very obvious that he does not like grown-ups. So for him this is a very bad thing.

12 04 2011
Sean C.

yeah it is kind of bad hes stating to become a grownup and he doesn’t like but you could have added reasoning like why he didn’t like grownups like he thinks their to serious he thinks their weird and other stuff

25 04 2011
Monica G

Ooh i didnt think of it in that way. Now i can kind of understander it a little more. I thought that it was a bad thing too but just by making him less unique. Thanks for leting me see it in a different way.

I think that the Little Prince changing is a bad thing. The creatures have taught to feel something besides imagination. They have taught him different emotions. Like the snake made him feel afraid by threatening him. The flower taught him to feel unimportant because she thought that being a human meant that you were just being blown away by the wind. She thought having roots was a blessing. The echo made him feel lonely. The little prince wondered why people on Earth were so boring, and why do they repeat the same words as he does. Back at home he had a flower who spoke first. The roses made him feel sad and unworthy. All this time he had thought that his flower he had back home was the only kind of rose in the world. Now when he comes to Earth there’s a whole bunch. So the little prince starts to feel different because of all these creatures. He realizes that there’s other people in the world besides adults, and they don’t have ridiculous stuff to say. Instead they have something that made the little prince feel with passion that he barely knew existed. So the creatures are really started to get to him.

I totally agree with what you are saying! Like how the Little Prince doesn’t want to be a grownup at all. I love your answer to this question!

25 04 2011
Monica G

That is exactly how i thought it was like. I thought almost like the earth opened his eyes and made him see the real world. I think that this is a very bad thing because maybe he didnt really need to no all about the real world.

There are many ways the book can go. I half don’t understand the meaning of it myself. The other half is just a guess. The little Prince is getting sad. People are so caught up in every day life that they don’t pay attention to what is happening around them. I think that the little prince is coming to the fact that this is going to happen to him in a few years. He does not want that to happen.

15 04 2011
Martina K.

Well i agree with that the little prince is getting sad, but i think there’s a little more to it. You should say how he got sad, like if he’s sad because he doesn’t want to grow up. 🙂 GOOD JOB!

I think that the little prince’s time on Earth has changed him a lot. In the beginning he was never upset and always had an imagination, but as the story goes on everyone and everything that he sees changes him. On earth, he is starting to realize that life has bumps in the road and everything isn’t perfect. Also that sometimes people aren’t as they seem to be. When he met the snake, the snake told him that all of his pain would disappear if he were dead. Meeting the flower made him feel unimportant because he said that people we so boring and just pushed around. Meeting the roses though i think hurt him the most because on his little planet he had a rose that said she was the only one of her kind in the whole universe, but when he sees the garden of “5000” roses he begins to feel that she cheated him or lied to him and that she is just like all people being vain. In my opinion i think that the little price is getting a taste of what it is like to grow up because you have to face more things.

I think your answer is Great. I really understand what you have to say, its different than my thoughts. but its so good i think i might want to change mine. 🙂 🙂 🙂

The Little Prince has just realized that life isn’t all “rainbows and butterflies”. There is boredom, lack of interest, loss of hope, and unoriginality. The snake basically offered the Little Prince the easy way out- dying. The Little Prince thought the snake didn’t believe in him. The snake showed the Little Prince what type of power he has, the power to end you life. The flower showed him how horrible it is to be human. Always moving around, constantly changing. The flower had everything right where she was, always grounded firmly in place. The echo shows all of the boredom in the world. Everyone is always walking in circles. They make a mistake, then do it again and again. They never try anything new, nothing is ever done differently. The roses show how unoriginal people are. They want to be the same as the next big thing. Look the same, dress the same, walk the same, talk the same! The flower on the Little Prince’s planet thought she was so special, like she was the trendsetter. In fact, there were thousands of others, just like her. Who is the follower, I don’t know. But the Little Prince now has a new perspective. He finally does see the un-perfectness. I find this a good and bad change. It’s good because now he can’t go prancing around, talking to deadly such-and-such, thinking nothing is going to happen, that there will be no consequences to his actions. He now gets the world. But it is also a bad thing. He might have been better off with his carefree lifestyle. Now he see what can go wrong. He has lost hope, because of Earth. Maybe he will try to fix the Earth, making it perfect…

I absolutely love your reasoning, and I agree 100% with you. You did a great job explaining.

thank you!!! i really agree with your post as well, especially about the snake.

The encounters have changed the Little Prince in some ways. They made him notice how things are and why they happen on Earth. The Little Prince’s imagination is starting to fade now. This isn’t really a good or bad thing. It’s more normal. This is just the Little Prince growing up.

12 04 2011
Ammar I

These 4 things changed the little prince and to me this is showing how life will be for him when he grows. For example, the snake represents how you can do what you want you want but nobody can tell you what to do. The flower represents on how you won’t easily learn stuff. The mountains represent on how you won’t have imagination and you will easily get jealous. The roses represent the part that no body likes. They represent on how you will not be as unique when you get older. And nobody wants to be same. I would say this neither bad or good because that this is the way of life. You will get older and there is no way you can stop it. So I’m saying as you grow up your life will be a lot different then when you were a kid.

I think that the Earth and the people (or creatures) the little prince has met are slowly eating away the Little Prince’s imagination. Since, he has come To Earth,he has also become progressively more depressed and sad, and not looking at things in the same perspective that he used to. ( didn’t get to finish)

15 04 2011
Hailey A.

For what you have so far I can clearly understand what you are trying to say. I also love how you used eating away at is imagination. That was a nice word choice.

Earth and the creatures are changing the way the Little Prince thinks about himself and his planet. Because the snake, flower, echo, and roses are starting to talk to him, and they make him think more about his life on his planet. It changed him in a bad way. Now he is thinking of everything in a bad way, and its making him really sad. The Little Prince is starting to think he isn’t rich, so he can’t be a prince anymore. He thinks this because he only has a flower and 3 volcanoes. And the of the volcanoes is extincted. So now the Little Prince doesn’t think that he has a good life anymore. All of the creatures he met on Earth are causing him to think that way.

15 04 2011
Martina K.

I love your answer! I really liked how you explained things. I understood how the creatures changed the way he feels about himself. It made sense how you explained it! 🙂 GREAT JOB!

MR. Obbins

I think the Little Prince was changed by all of the creatures he met on Earth so far. The snake taught him that it doesn’t matter who you are, or what you do because we all die.The flower showed him how some people live their lives. They live rooted to their surroundings that they truly love and understand. The echo showed him the way of the people. Someone does something and years later, it is repeated. It’s the cycle of the humans. Finally, the roses showed him that there are other fish in the sea. He thought his flower was the best, the only one of her kind. Now, the Little Prince sees that there are others just like his flower. This was a good thing for the Prince, though. He may not like it but it’s a big part of growing up.

12 04 2011

The Little prince realized that not all things in life are perfect. This is good because he is just growing up like everyone does eventually. When the little prince met the snake he realized that some things in life are dangerous . Just because it doesn’t have the power to make you do things it has something more powerful, the power to kill.

Being on Earth has changed the Little Prince. Every time he meets some (or something) he gets more an more upset. when first stepping foot on Earth he meets the snake. The snake tells the little prince that he is more powerful than a king’s finger. He also talks in riddles. After the snake he meets the flower who tells the little prince that when the wind blows the humans float away for the are not rooted to the ground. Now, the snake knew more for he can move around but, the flower can not move so she knows less. After the flower is the echo. The echo is very simple. The Little Prince believes that the echo is people talking too him. This makes him upset because “the people” only repeat what he says. The roses come after the echo. They upset him the most in my eyes. His flower, the one on his planet, told him that she was one of a kind and there where no other flowers like her. When he meets the roses they are exactly like her. Now in his eyes he just had a regular rose. Why these things upset him? I have no clue.

Earth has really changed the little prince. He thought that he was special and unique. After he saw how threatening, yet similar Earth is to his planet, he feels like he’s becoming a boring adult. After seeing the thousand roses, in one garden, he realizes the his flower isn’t as special than she thinks she is. And for his 3 volcanoes, one might be extinct forever!

12 04 2011

i think he is sad because he thought that his flower was the only one in the world. when he found out he was wrong he was sad.

The creatures on Earth that the Little Prince has met have changed the Little Prince a lot. Although they are changing him, I think they are changing him in a bad way. This is because he is losing his imagination and has realized not everything is perfect. The snake has told the Little Prince that one person can only do so much. After meeting the flower the Little Prince realizes adults are boring and are pushed around. The echo made the Little Prince feel lonely. Before meeting the roses the Little Prince thought his flower was the only one of his kind, but when he met the roses there were 5000 of the same roses. He then thought his flower had told him a lie. All in all the Little Prince is growing up.

14 04 2011
Nikolas S.

Earth has really changed the little prince. It taught him that the world is not perfect. The little prince thought he was special because he owned and took care of his own flower, but on Earth he saw a whole garden of flowers identical to his flower. This made the prince feel ordinary. Also the echo he met on the mount made the prince think that Earth was boring, that people on the planet could not think about what to say. Then the flower made the little prince that people just went where the wind takes them because the flower has only seen a few people. All these things have probably lead up to the point that the world is not perfect and he has to grow up.

14 04 2011

I agree with what you say. Earth is a dangerous place for the little prince, because he knows nothing about the place and can become confused easily.

14 04 2011
Grant O.

The echo is the boredom of life. people just repeat things over and over. The roses are the unoriginality in life. Everybody wants the same cool things and eventually they’re not cool anymore.

15 04 2011

I agree grant that people in real life do say things over and over. Good Job 😉

14 04 2011
Nikolas S.

Oh, and i think it is good that the little prince is learning that the world is not perfect. I think because he is going to grow up at some point and it will be good that he is ready for it.

14 04 2011

As the little prince met these four new characters, he started to change. Now, he is starting to understand how things really work. The snake that he met in the desert taught him that anyone can be powerful in some way, no matter how small. The flower had told the little prince that it is better to stay in one place. When the little prince met the met the echo, he learned all of the downsides of being on Earth. All of the boredom and unimaginative sides of it shows when the little prince meets the echo. The last characters he met were the bunch of roses. This is when the little prince gets very confused and when he just lost hope. His “rose” back at home told him that she was the only kind of flower in the world until he met the other roses. Then he just thought she was an ordinary rose, but he did not get what she really meant. His rose meant she is one of a kind, because nobody could replace her.

Earth can change a person really fast! Just imagine being someone from a whole other planet, and experiencing the planet of Earth. This is the position that the Little Prince is in, and he has changed a lot through his journey! On Earth, the Little Prince met a snake, a flower, roses, and even his own echos! These characters have changed the Little Prince while he was on Earth in many ways. First, all of these simple characters showed the Little Prince that he needs to grow up, and that he is acting too young for his age. The snake taught him about power and self control. After that, the flower taught him that you should think about others than just yourself. This is because she had feelings for humans which taught a lesson. The roses in the garden actually taught the Little Prince that a person can just be an ordinary person in the world, but to someone else you can be the world. I thought this was a great lesson because this effected the Little Prince greatly! Finally, there was the prince’s own echos. This taught the prince that you can always say the same thing over and over again, but you can say something but never do it. This is what these things meant to me. This all related on how the Little Prince changed into a bigger person and a mature adult. I believe this is a good thing because even though people never want to grow up, they have to some day. The Little Prince has to grow up eventually, and I think this is a great way for him to do so!

14 04 2011

I agree with you because you are pointing it out and he does need to grow up eventually in his life

14 04 2011
julissa v.

I agree about how he needs to grow up.

14 04 2011

i totally agree because it is making him realize the important things in life but he can keep a little part of his kid inside of him so i am so so :\

14 04 2011
JRobichaud13

Earth and it’s creatures have changed the little prince by making him grow up more. Making him actually think about what’s going on around him. This is BAD because if he grows up, he will become a grown up. Grown ups are bad to him, and to me.

14 04 2011
D.J.C.

I disagree because he if he never grows up it would not be right. He needs to learn that he can’t be a kid forever!

14 04 2011
Jake R.

They have made him think how much different earth is from his planet. He found out that every thing we have like flowers he thinks on his planet is a big deal. Except it is really not a big deal. It is good because he is now starting to grow up and realize new things are not that great.

14 04 2011
christopher m.

The earth has changed him a lot because his flower said she was the only one of her kind. But on earth there are tons of roses. Also there are tons of people that he met a while back in the book. He feels sad because he thinks that people keep echoing him.

14 04 2011
D.J.C.

I think it is preparing him for when he grows up and becomes an adult. It may be sad to see him sad, but everyone will grow up. That is why I think it is good.

14 04 2011
JRobichaud13

How do you know this is going to prepare him for when he grows up. He hates grown ups. I’m sorry, but I don’t agree with you. He probably isn’t even going to stay on Earth.

14 04 2011
christopher m.

yours good be true 🙂 but i think that its kinda because hes sad because his flower lied to him that said she was the only 1 of her kinda

14 04 2011
danielle

It has changed the little prince because they are letting him know that his flower isn’t the only one alive and that he is relizing that he isn’t the only one there and what real life looks like and how they are and how life works and i think that that it is good that he is changing and he know s how like is working and that there is more to life

14 04 2011
Jessica S.

It is changing him into a adult little by little. This is a good thing but a bad thing for the Little Prince. Its good because he is eventually going to grow up anyway so this is good he finally is growing up. It is bad for the Little Prince because he thinks adult is a swear word. He likes imagining things not being a grownup.

14 04 2011
Abbie B.

I agree i think that him turning into an adult is a bad thing. Him being an adult is bad it make him lose all of his imagination. without an imagination he would be some boring old adult.

14 04 2011
Adriana B.

Yes earth has changed the little prince. I think it kind of changed him in bad way because all of the things he has seen is making he think the wrong things such as the other roses he see is making him feel that his flower is not special at all or not different then any other flower. also the echo is making him feel lonely because they keep repeating what he is saying. the snake is kind of making him feel that he is nothing then any other person on earth and that he is not that powerful.

14 04 2011
Eva R.

I disagree with you because I think it is a good thing he is growing up because he is going to find out that you can’t have a kid life forever. Sorry but I disagree with you.

i agree with have that he will have to grow up at some point. so i am sorry Adriana 😦

T.J.Gibson

i think the little prince is starting to realize that the earth is changing him. before he came to earth, he was happy and didn’t have a care in the world. but now he is sad and lonely and is not realizing what life on earth is doing to him. he may be growing up

14 04 2011
Maisie M.

The things that the Little Prince met on Earth changed him a lot i think. But i think this is good but also bad at the same time. The first thing that he meets is the snake. The snake to me was representing things that have puzzled the author before. Maybe about what is going to happen in the future, or if he will come home alive from the war. Or maybe even something about what the rose could represent. I think the echo changed the Little Prince by telling him all the loneliness of the world. Maybe how the author might of felt before leaving the war or maybe some one very close to him that he loved that left him. And that the loneliness is just kind of tormenting him. The flower was making the Little Prince sad because he felt empty without his old flower back on his home planet. That also could represent the author in the war missing someone who he had to leave behind. But i think the roses have changed the Little Prince the most. It was then when he noticed that his rose might not of been that special. Right then he noticed that there were a ton of other flowers exactly like that one flower. To me i think that that flower represents someone who might of walked out on the author. But i think that this is all good for the Little Prince. It’s finally making him not so innocent anymore. But it is also bad because it is making him a little bit of a grownup. And that’s exactly what the Little Prince doesn’t want to be.

14 04 2011
Adriana B.

it also could be good because its making him learn that everyone grows up and that its his turn. The things he sees on earth is teaching him a lesson.

14 04 2011
Maisie M.

yeah that’s a good idea. that’s kind of what i thought too

14 04 2011
Collin V.

The Little Prince has met a snake, who taught him about power, he met a flower, that reminded him about his flower and that his is just a normal rose and there are many other roses. He met his own echo, witch he was confused that the people on Earth (his echo) were just repeating what he said, he also met some roses that reminded him of his rose again and that there are millions more. This is a bad thing because all of the characters on the other planets were ridiculous and funny but the characters on Earth are making him depressed.

14 04 2011
Eva R.

Earth and the creatures The Little Prince has met changed him very much.They have changed him because the snake taught the Little Prince that we die in some kind of way no matter what. The echo that The Little Prince met made him feel lonely, like there is no one there to comfort The Little Prince. Another thing that The Little Prince met on Earth was the flower. The flower made The Little Prince feel sad because he left his other flower all alone and not protected. But that all changes when he meets the roses. The roses just made The Little Prince feel that he doesn’t need the flower because there way more out there just like her. All of the things that The Little Prince met on planet Earth turned optimistic and positive The Little Prince into kind of an adult. This all means that The Little Prince is growing up and isn’t going to be kid forever.
I think this is a good thing because it shows that The Little Prince is starting to grow up. This means that you can’t be a kid forever.
I think that the author wrote this part in the book because maybe he misses being a kid and having all your freedom. I think that being a kid is better than being an adult. This is what happened to The Little Prince and if it is good or bad.

14 04 2011
Abbie B.

The roses changed him the most. The little prince lost all his pride. He is not as optomistic as he was before. He always says “I have two active volcanoes and one extinct volcano but you never know” he also always only saw the good side of his flower and blamed himself when something was wrong with her. But now when he saw all the roses he realizes she is not that special. He doesnt even think that his volcanoes are all that amazing anymore.

14 04 2011
Ivan C

The snake was the opposite of the king. The snake actually had power. The flower reminded the prince about the home he left. Then he met a garden of flowers and thought his flower wasn’t that special anymore.

14 04 2011
Joseph A

The Earth has changed the little prince greatly. He used to believe that he had a special flower and 3 special volcanoes, but now he doesn’t care for them because the earth has so many of them. Also he used to believe that his volcano might work again, but now he lost hope. I think he is turning into an adult.

The snake was the opposite of the king. The snake actually had power. The flower reminded the prince about the home he left. Then he met a garden of flowers and thought his flower wasn’t that special anymore. (o_0)

I think the creatures he met there is a bad thing to him. Since he had a rose that was so special because there was just one of it, its now that special anymore because on Earth he found a whole bunch of them. He is starting to loose his imagination. To him grown ups is like a bad word. Everyone on Earth is a grown up. To the little prince grown ups means they have no imagination since they are so old.

I think that your wrong because him growing up is a good thing and he is getting more mature.

the prince thinks that earth is not such a good place when it is and also his flower lied to him and said that she was the only of her kind so that makes him sad

I think that earth and the creatures he has met have changed the way the little prince thought about him and his planet. he was changed by all the animals because the snake is telling him he has power. the flower told him that there was other things on the planet that are real. the echo told him there is not always people all around. the roses tell him that there is more than one thing on this planet.

Earth has really changed. It is good because he needs to grow up. All the creatures he has met really change him. The snake taught him about power. The flower taught him to think about other and not just your self. The roses taught him about how some people has similar things. The echo taught him about the world and how it sort of works.

I agree with you!!! It is a good thing that he is growing up because he is getting more mature.

I agree. The flower made the little prince more sad because, he thought she was unique and the only rose on the planet left.The creatures taught him a lot of things he never know.Now he is finding more things that make him realize how the really life is.

earth can change a person a lot.the little prince believed that he had the most special flower in the world but no there was thousands of them just like the one he had. the little prince has three volcanoes that come up to his knee but 1 of them of them are extinct, but then he sees that there are tons and thousands of them bigger than the planet he lives on.

It is a good thing because then other things are doing what they think is right.

I think it’s preparing him to like to start to grow up as an adult.Like to start realizing what to do . also to notice all th other things in life. Even not to be lonely like what the snake said. Or even what the echo said .

I think that this is good because the creatures are changing the little prince by making him more of an adult and making him realize the more important things in life. BUT i think this is bad has well because he is losing his imagination.n also because he is starting to be sad and depressed. last because he has realize that he is no one special just a normal adult.

15 04 2011

I think that is true about the little prince cause he is starting to turn in to an adult. So he is starting notice reality.

15 04 2011

It has made the little prince more grown up.I dont think that is such a good thing.Because he isnt so positive now.Which kind of makes it look like grown ups are blind to the world.Children are more open to things than grown ups are.They see more to life than anyone else.

15 04 2011

I think that how the snake and the roses and the Earth changed the Little Price by, how the roses look like the Little Prince’s flower. Also how the mountains are so big, and the Little Prince’s are so small. He starts to think that he’s turning into a grown-up.

15 04 2011
Thaisha N.

Well, the little prince was thinking positive but when he was on Earth, he met the creatures , he felt something snap. He was lonely. When he was lonely, he would look at the positive side. He always thought that when something was about to die or go extinct like his volcano, he would take care of it because he thought that it would come back to life or that it would get better. When he talked to the rose, he didn’t feel like a prince anymore. He was probably understanding the truth. It’s a good thing because he is growing up and becoming a more mature

15 04 2011

The Little Prince doesn’t have an imagination anymore. He is turning into an adult and less of a kid. Its not good because grownups don’t understand anything like kids do. Once he found out his volcanoes weren’t as big as the mountains on Earth and he didn’t have the only rose, he just has ordinary things on his planet. It’s a very bad thing.

15 04 2011

It makes the little prince see things in a different way. The little prince’s attitude has really changed through out the story, it all started when he meet a garden of roses that made him realize that his flower wasent any thing special i think it is a good thing that he is finally growing up,and i think now he knows that he cant revolve his life around a flower,and its good that he isent so nieave any more.every one needs to grow up some day!! :~~~)

I thought the new characters resembled many different things. But I narrowed in one each. The snake resembled someone who was just a downer. He was making the Little Prince sad and lonelier. The flower in the desert was making him feel alone because she hasn’t seen many humans. Humans aren’t mostly in deserts. The echo wasn’t a person, making the Little Prince feel like a real loner. The echo was just mocking him because it’s an echo. The roses drew the line for the Little Prince. They made him feel like his flower was nothing special, just another rose. His flower was nothing unique, which meant… Was he really a Little Prince?

15 04 2011

Earth has changed the Little Prince very much. On his planet, he thought everything was unique and very special. For example, he thought that his flower was one of a kind and that their was nothing like it. Prince thought his three volcanoes were one of a kind and they were..before he got to Earth. When he got to Earth, he discovered that their were many other flowers like his in the Rose Garden. This is bad because now the Little Prince doesn’t think of anything as something special anymore so now he finds the world boring and the same. I also think that he will become like the grown-ups, seeing everything as very dull and having no imagination anymore, going completely against his thoughts of “grown-ups are strange.”

The Little Prince is not right in his little head. Just because there are more flowers like his flower doesn’t make his flower special. The little Prince just needs someone to guild him.

15 04 2011

I think the characters that the Little Prince are making him more mean. I think that because he felt special when he had a flower on his planet until he saw the banquet of 50 flowers. Also the snake made the Prince sad because he said if he was lonely he would kill him.

15 04 2011

Well i personally think that the little prince is changing is a bad thing . Yet the little prince is losing his fun, kiddish personality that makes him who he is. And he’s losing what makes him special. He used to be kinda like his flower. He used to think that he was special in his own way but since he has meet the snake, the other flower, the echo and the roses. He started to think of himself as not special but he is and hes failing to see that. He’s not the only one who see that in someone that sees that like the little prince. Most adults think of that they aren’t special or anyone else is because they are depressed. Just like the little prince is starting to be because he meet all of those things that put him down. And they were actually starting to decrease his self confidence

29 02 2012
DDorich14

You are right! I don’t want to have the Little Prince to change. He is too special to change into a “Grown-Up”! But, I did think the flower needed some time out so she can get her head “that is if she has one” straight.

When the little prince meets the snake it kind of makes him feel lonely because the snake said he would send him back where he started.Then the little prince met the flower that made feel like he can’t find the humans.Soon he climb mountain and met the echo that made him feel more lonely. When he found a road he fellow to a million roses. When he saw all the roses he remember his flower that was not that specials and made him feel not like a prince any more. It was bad for the flowers to make feel more like an adult and not a kid any more. So earth started to change the little prince when he got there.

I think that the little Prince has changed because of the creatures the little Prince met on earth and also earth ,by how he has acted to each creature. Also by how he started positive with the first two creates he met.Then you could see him start to get to the negative as he met the last few creatures. I think this is a bad thing because he was so positive then tuned into a negative prince!

15 04 2011

All of the creaters are super crasy but they just does not understand alot of of the time they just understand how they live.

I tottoley agree with you they do not really know.

i think that it is good and bad. i think this because you can never be way to childish. and in one point in life you will need toy be at least a little adultish. by this i mean that you should get a job and learn to be normal!!!!!!! but it is also a bad thing because you should always have at least a little creativity. without at least a little creativity in life then you will grow to be a very mean person. an if you even try to be a jerk you will be hated and if every person hates you will have not one friend in life!

The Little Prince has changed in a bad way, for him at least. He started out in as a very optimistic guy. Now since he visted Earth, he changed slowly in to a person who is very pesstimistic. Either he is becoming mature, or he is just starting to worry about things. The Little Prince was changed by these creatures of Earth. For example, he met a snake. This snake thought he had the power to kill you so you can go to another body. Then he met a flower. The flower just didn’t understand how people move. Finally, he met some flowers, roses to be exact. He has a flower on his planet that is the same as 5,000 other roses. The flower told him that she was the only one of her kind. The flower lied to the Little Prince. Heavy news for the Prince,………….

15 04 2011

I think this is a bad thing because he doesn’t want t be a grown up.Little Prince want to be he should be.I don’t get that flower would lie to a little kid like that.He should listen to her and he is getting sadder and sadder every minute.

Earth has changed little prince in many ways , on his plant he thought everything was so special . He thought his flower was one of a kind but in reality , it wasn’t there was about 50 of the same flower in one garden on earth . He also thought his 3 volcanoes were special ,which they were. But not compared to Earth , earth had many more volcanoes and mountains , but much larger than his volcanoes . I think the little prince is finally starting to grow up.

Going to Earth changed the little prince. He lost his creativity and imagination. He is becoming more and more of an adult. This is happening because , he met a garden of roses. Back home he thought he had the only rose that looked like that, he was wrong and started to feel depressed and sad. He thought his rose was unique, but he discovered there were more roses that were exactly like his. He started to miss her and regret leaving his planet. Soon he’ll be living a normal life.

The creature he met did change him because he is starting to think like a grown up. L think it is a good thing because. you have to grow up ventrally.

20 04 2011
jaret m.

it changed him in a bad way because know he is acting like a Jeff.and what that means is he thinks bad of everything.and he doesn’t imagine anything anymore he is becoming a adult now.all the other roses him made him think that his rose was just a ordinary rose and the mountains were just regular old mountains.

I agree that the little prince was acting Jeff how everything made him feel like he had something special but now it just the same as the others.

I think that the creatures that the Little Prince met on earth have changed him. I think that, ever since he met the garden of roses he doesn’t feel as special as he used to because he thought that he had the most specialist rose, but the truth is he just has an ordinary flower. I also think that his visit on earth is making him grow up a little faster than he needs to. He used to say that he has three volcano’s that comes up to his knees and he rakes them out every day just in case, but he sounded different, like he was sad, because he said “I have three volcano’s that come up to my knee and one might be permittivity extinct. It is a good thing that he is finally growing up but its a bad thing because he might be growing up to fast.

28 04 2011

I agree with you when the little prince met the garden of roses that made him feel like he was not a prince like he was and I do think the little prince might start growing up a little faster because of some of the animals.

20 04 2011
GabbyL

I think he changed that little prince had lost part of imagination.He starting to become an adult by little parts.When he started becoming adult when he saw the roses.He thought that had only one unique rose,that nobody would ever have . That is how everything started to happen.And when he saw other volcanoes on earth that were even bigger than his.Now he is starting get more sad and why he left his planet.

28 04 2011

I do agree with you that the little prince is starting to lose his imagination when he went to earth and met the roses,fox,and flower.

I think it changed him because he use to think he was so special and different. It could be a bad thing and a good thing.It could be a bad thing because he would always see the down side to everything. People don’t like others with bad attitudes. so not only would he be in a bad mood all the time, but he would also be without friends, and that would make him have a worse mood. That would mean he would be stuck in a circle like the rest of the adults. This could also be a good thing because every one has to grow up eventually. Its nice to have an imagination like a kid, but it would also be good if you act your age( Mr. Curtis is an exception because when he does it its really funny).

20 04 2011

I think that the Earth changed the little prince big time. The Earth changed the little prince form being a little kid and not know what was wrong with grown ups, to being a grown up and lose his imagination. So I think that the way the Earth change him is a very bad thing.I think this way because if he were to say the way he was he could change some thing in people life. Now he doesn’t have that mind like a kid.

This is bad! The Little Prince has changed a lot.The flowers told the Little Prince something that really changed him.He is starting to think like a grown up! But most of all, he is changing!
The creatures that he has met are changes his life.For example,the roses,they said,”We are just roses.”This is really changing him.He is turning like an adult!
If The Little Prince starts to grow up without his imagination he will be an ADULT!!!!This is a BAD idea!! Is making him worse. Will he turn into an adult?
The Little Prince sees that the flowers know that they are just flowers.He sat down and was sad.He might not have any more fun like he did.He might not be the same.
The Little Prince is beginning to realize that a thing is what it is. Its a good and bad idea. But mostly bad.

28 04 2011

I do agree how the little prince was starting to charge when he saw the roses that look like his flower and made him feel like a kid with nothing special.

20 04 2011
GabbyL

I also think that when he was gone he kept thinking of why he left his planet. He sees that earth is not as really of his kind of things that he does at his planet.Now he knows where ever he goes it only what grown ups think. Not like what kids think

Who represents the Geographer? I who ever thinks you are a number, like a example is your ID. Like 75648393 had a hot lunch. By the way I know nobody with that ID number. Does anybody really want to be a number? The school doesn’t think you are person, they think you a test score and a bit of a source of income which I sadly can’t refuse in that problem because that is how the teachers gets paid.

But I think that is upsetting. {I don’t think it is bad that a teacher gets paid though.} Because I don’t think those people like it when they are a number. Can you image yourself as a number, you don’t have a name on your profile you have number and that is that. When some on face book wants to look you up they have to type in 9492785. Please comment if you agree with me.

They never say on your school profiles that you are a bit of a joker or that you a short-tempered person, it is just a ISAT score or a discovery score. They will never,ever,ever say that you need extra help with understaing something that you think is difficult.
