    "Glad that I found this!"


    I liked the structuring of this audiobook version. English language being my first language, it was difficult for me to practice my French skills and to understand most of the words. However, I did notice some improvement while practicing my French with this audiobook and will definitely continue to listen to it. Plus the narrator's pronounciation of the words is very clear. Overall, very good audiobook!

    "Great audio & bilingual version of this epic tale!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Le Petit Prince is a classic of French literature, I believe it is even one of the most popular French book. It is not only directed to children but adults can also identify to this universal character.

    This audio version is great, well done and not annoying or boring at all. The tone of the narrater is pleasant, and the expressions used make it alive. It allows the listener to completely enter in another world and escape reality. I found, as a native French speaker, that listening to the book in French is more authentic, the speed of narration is not too fast.

    The English version is a fantastic alternative though, especially if you a non-French speaker. Improve your French skills by combining both versions. I highly recommend to discover the tale of Le Petit Prince through this audio book, it is a timeless story.

    "Very Creative and Original"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Le petit prince (The Little Prince) to be better than the print version?

    Yes of course! Really helped in improving my French Diction, i can't learn that through a physical book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Le petit prince (The Little Prince)?

    How French words are being broken down and used in ways that are easy to remember


    Have you listened to any of Aurore Belle and Shanna Stoker ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Life and Times of the Little Prince


    Any additional comments?

    Such a Classic! An Originally composed story with such brilliance is pretty hard to find these days. I took some French classes in high school but I've never been more interested in the language than now. I learn a lot more and way faster in this 4-hour audiobook. This is a very helpful utility for people looking to get conversational with their French and not just a basic knowledge. Very lovely story and highly informative. A+++ for me!

    "A truly engaging story."
    If you could sum up Le petit prince (The Little Prince) in three words, what would they be?

    Engaging, manageable, and fun.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Le petit prince (The Little Prince)?

    For me it was the little Prince meeting the fox for the first time. Out of all the individuals the little Prince meets, I feel the fox taught him the most. He taught him about what is truly important in life are the things that only the heart can see. This made the little Prince appreciate the rose he left behind even more.


    Have you listened to any of Aurore Belle and Shanna Stoker ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to other performances narrated by these individuals, but based on this one I would love to hear other stories from them in the future. They were clear in their presentation and made it easy for me to understand.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Adults could use a little bit of imagination once in a while.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great short story to help me rekindle my fascination with the French culture. From time to time I have tried teaching myself French; however, sometimes it proves difficult because I do not follow a set structure. This short story was a perfect mix of grammar usage, conjugation, and common words and phrases used daily in France. The difficulty level of this story was also great for me. It was just difficult enough for me to have to sit and think about what the narrator had said, but not too hard that I would end up being discouraged.

    Story
    "Loved it!"

    This is a very great book! It includes an aspect of realism that leaves you gasping. When it starts to touch on the comparison between an adult's perspective on life and a kids, I could not agree with it any more. Adults look at the side of an event that involves all wealth, while a more young and curious mind comes skipping about they look at all aspects of the event to truly capture the moment. The Little Prince adds an aspect of a curious kid that causes the adult to really think out a well constructed response. This causes the adults that may read or listen to this book to actually hear out a child. This book leaves a message that could be eye opening to an adult. This message is that an adult may not actaully take in the thoughts of a minor unless an inconvenience is holding them back. Some adults will take this to heart and listen in to minors more to open the mind of themselves. 

    Overall this is a great book to hear or read, it definitely causes the mind to flow of any individual, a minor or an adult. 


    This would be a great book for anyone, and is an entertaining story for a kid to hear, and eye-opening for a busy adult that may not take the time out of their day to listen to a child. 


    Sorry for the lengthy review.

    "Great AudioBook! A must in your collection."
    What did you love best about Le petit prince (The Little Prince)?

    I love this story. I remember when I first read it back when I was only 10 years old. It's such a magical story and this audiobook brings that to live.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Le petit prince (The Little Prince)?

    Definitely the beginning of the story. When he drew a picture of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant in its stomach, it’s a really iconic part of the story with a very deep message.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the prince leaves and consoles the narrator by saying that he only need to look at the stars to think of the prince's lovable laughter. It breaks my heart every time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Le Petit Prince: Unleash your Imagination.


    Any additional comments?

    As a native Spanish speaker I remember struggling a lot when I first learned English, and one of the things that really helped out was listening/reading my favorite audiobooks in English to motivate myself to practice and develop my skills. I was so glad to find the audiobook of Le Petit Prince now that I’m learning French. It’s a short story, very easy to understand, the best part is the exquisite pronunciation and the helpful repetition of words because it makes learning vocabulary and verbs easy.

    Any additional comments?

    I found this audio book to be really useful for getting a better handle on French pronunciation. The story is simple enough that you can really focus on the words being used and digesting some of their simpler meanings and the way they are spoken. The narrator really helps with this since she speaks very clearly while still being enjoyable to listen to. I don’t have much experience with French, but this seems to be a simple way to improve my understanding and usage.

    "Excellent Audiobook for French/English Learners"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this audiobook to a friend because it allows me to brush up on my French listening skills in an actual French cultural context, which I haven't been able to do since taking French classes in high school a few years back. I've always been searching for The Little Prince in a French and English dual language book or audiobook to test my listening and reading skills, and this is the perfect solution! Especially since it comes with a dual language PDF and I've only previously had the French version of the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is the fox because he is very wise and honest and reminds me of myself.


    Have you listened to any of Aurore Belle and Shanna Stoker ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to either Aurore Belle or Shanna Stoker's other performances before, but I thought it was well done. To improve, they might want to present different voices for different characters, specifically Aurore Belle, so the listener is more apt to pick up what is happening in the story, but other than that it was very easy to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had enough time to, I would. It would allow me a complete picture of the story. Though I do like to go back to sections or pause between sections or chapters so I can process what was said.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a few short pauses where I could hear a noise that sounds like it is the voice over's microphone - maybe edit those out to make it more smooth to listen to.

    Le Petit Prince is narrated so beautifully, especially in French! From someone who studied French throughout school, but did not really practice it daily, this audiobook made comprehension simple, and the English translation is spot on. Wonderful story and a pleasure to listen!

    "Simply beautiful story, for all ages"

    After reading (or listening to) this charming, yet profound story, one can no longer see the stars as mere lights in the night sky...and a single rose acquires new significance. The infinite value of true friendship, and of meaningful one-on-one relationships, is beautifully illustrated.

    "Great story, well narrated, Great Idea!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Le petit prince (The Little Prince) to be better than the print version?

    Considerably. It is very difficult to know how if the French is pronounced correctly without knowing french, or without guidance. Having such a well narrated story was very useful.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The little narrator of the story was my favorite rather than any particular character because I like the way everything was described.


    Which character – as performed by Aurore Belle and Shanna Stoker – was your favourite?

    This is the same question as above


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I generally prefer to read in 30 minute intervals though this is a matter of personal preference.


    Any additional comments?

    A very interesting idea for a book. I was not expecting to read a book about exploration with so much surprises and adventure. My Children loved it!

    "Brilliant opportunity to improve your French"

    Le petit prince audiobook provides a brilliant opportunity to improve your ability to understand spoken French. I am at an advanced level in French and found it incredibly useful for improving my comprehension skills, in addition to extending my vocabulary and I would highly recommend this book to French learners at all levels. The book would also be perfect for children who are starting to learn French, providing a more enjoyable learning experience. As an audiobook, it is easy to learn how to pronounce words and that is something which is lacking in the print version as it is very difficult for new learners to know pronunciation just from reading in French.

    Would you listen to Le petit prince (The Little Prince) again? Why?

    As a speaker of French, I would definitely listen to this again due to the entertaining way in which it is narrated and the vocabulary used.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how imaginative some ideas in the text were.


    Which character – as performed by Aurore Belle and Shanna Stoker – was your favourite?

    It would be too difficult to choose just one! All of the characters seemed fascinating.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time, I would have loved to listen to the whole thing at once.

    "So much better as an audiobook!"

    Would you listen to Le petit prince (The Little Prince) again? Why?

    Absolutely, as listening to this book helped me an incredible amount in terms of my pronunciation in particular.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how inspiring the story was. It lets us experience the world through the eyes of Petit Prince - with honest and pure intentions.

    What about Aurore Belle and Shanna Stoker's performance did you like?

    The presentation of characters was excellent and the story was easy to follow thanks to their clear diction, which I found extremely useful.

    Did you have an emotional reaction to the book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It certainly gave me a smile and a warm, tingly feeling!

    Any additional comments?

    I studied French back in high school for a year, and have been looking to brush up my skills for some time now. Boy am I glad I came across this book! The length of the story, the difficulty level, the usage of grammar, conjugation and typical aspects of common French dialogue are all present in this book, making it the full package for me.

    I have been studying French the past few years, but not so much lately, this was a great listen and refreshed my French, very easy to listen to and pick up what is being said, being able to hear the same words said multiple times really made sure I now know how to pronounce them, which is very helpful!
    The story itself runs very smoothly and is really great to listen to!

    Where does Le petit prince (The Little Prince) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    First, I wouldn't listen to an audiobook for no reason, and this one really improved my pronounciation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Le petit prince (The Little Prince)?

    When he draws a "hat" and explains how we don't see what he actually meant the drawing to be.


    Any additional comments?

    It helped me so much to get used to the French accent, especially because the book itself is enjoyable so if you need to improve you language skills this is for definitely for you.

    It's a wonderful to have The Little Prince in dual language version. I'm a beginner in French, so I found very useful PDF that comes with the audiobook. I could listen to the words and have translation in front of me. Additionally French pronunciation is quite a challenge for me, so listen to an audio version really helped me to improve it.

    I really enjoyed this timeless charming tale narrated both in French and in English. In this tale you may discover new imaginative ideas every time. And listening to it narrated by a native French speaker was a perfect brush up for my French, that I don’t use daily. I definitely recommend this audio book. Consider that you can listen to it while cooking, ironing, drawing or simply relaxing, making the best of your time!
