<p>Abstract:</p><p>In this article, I analyze the potential positive impact of aerial perspectives on children's understanding of their place in the world, with <i>Le Petit Prince</i> envisioning a borderless world of ecological and social unity. The novellas of the pilot and author Antoine de Saint-ExupÃ©ry encourage their projected viewers to see the interconnectedness of all life, including the life of the planet itself. Most notably, <i>Le Petit Prince</i> raises environmental responsibility in discussing the prince's planet and undermines ideas of national difference as the prince views the earth from space. Visual adaptations of <i>Le Petit Prince</i> by Stanley Donen and Will Vinton pick up on Saint-ExupÃ©ry's phenomenology of perception and translate them through visual techniques into politicized aerial perspectives. Looking at <i>Le Petit Prince</i> and its film adaptations, this article argues that aerial perspectives work to transform children's perceptions and break down bordered mappings of the world.</p>
