If you love reading books, you must know about the book The Little Prince. It’s a famous novel written by a French writer. As one of the best-selling books in history, it has been sold as many as 200 million copies in 253 languages and dialects(方言). Now, around seventy years after the birth of the book, an American director has found a way to make it into a 3-D animated film.
The book tells the story of a pilot, called The Aviator, who crashes into the desert and meets a young prince there. However, in the film, the story starts years after the crash when The Aviator is much older. He has got a new neighbor called The Little Girl, whose mother wants her to get ready to enter the grown-up world. Slowly, The Aviator shares his story with The Little Girl by writing it down and sending her a page at a time. The pages are complete with the pictures in the book, speaking about his time in the desert and taking The Little Girl to an amazing world where anything is possible.
China is the first country in the world to see the film in two versions(版本)---in Chinese and English. The film shows The Little Girl’s life and tells The Little Prince’s story at the same time in a beautiful way.
Huang Lei, a famous Chinese actor, says the film is like a childhood dream which is lost by most adults in this stressed-out society.

Playing with friends, going to a party, having a meal in a restaurant or receiving a birthday gift—as a teenager, you go to different places and meet different kinds of people. Everything you do leaves an impression. So manners are very important.
Arriving 30 minutes late for a date, you may say, “This isn’t that important to me.” Taking a cell phone call while talking to your friend, you may say, “The caller is more important than the person standing in front of me.” Failing to show thanks to a gift-giver, you may say, “I don’t like the gift.” Is that the message you really want to send? Maybe not. You do not want to be rude, but sometimes what you do makes people think you’re impolite.
How can you change that? First, you should know the proper ways to behave around people. We call this manners. Manners are about being honest, respectful and considerate(考虑周到的). Good manners show in small things. Start to make your manners better now!
You could start by adding “please” and “thank you” to your vocabulary and avoiding bad language. You could start by holding a door open for someone after you to go through. You could start by showing up on time instead of letting others wait for you. Start now! Start a new life and start to be a teenager with good manners!
