Teachers Praise Conor Grennan and LITTLE PRINCES

Conor Grennan's touching memoir, Little Princes has already proved inspirational for those (myself included) who have been lucky enough to snag an advanced reading copy of the book. Working in academic marketing, I couldn't help but see this story not only as an exciting and powerful read, but also as a perfect example for students to see the difference one person can make in the world. Conor was deeply moved by a tragic situation and set out to do something about it.

While I could continue to give the reasons for why I think this book is important for students to experience, I will concede to the review of high school English teacher—and avid blogger—Mrs. O'Dell as she reviews Little Princes, calling the book “beautiful inside and out” and predicting that this will be a title that she “will likely pass to many, many of [her] students and might even put on [her] school’s summer reading list.”

If you would like a desk or exam copy of Little Princes, please let us know!
