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. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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.

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.

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.

Engaging narration with clarity!

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.

great educational book!

I thought this book was very helpful and a great idea. I think it's wonderful for children to learn and grow and exploring another language is a great way to do that.  I've had a love of the French language ever since I was in middle school and I was even able to learn something from this book.  I think it's a cute story and a great read for both kids and parents.

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.

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.

Any additional comments?

Would highly recommend this audiobook for both beginners and confident French speakers.

Really helpful and very good story!

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!

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!

Le Petit Perfection

I have studied French for a long time but rarely have to opportunity to read books that combine the French and English languages so beautifully. The Little Prince is perfect for learning about the differences between the two languages with adjectives and conjugation. It is a beautiful story, perfectly suited for small children and adults alike.

A beautiful fantasy story with dual language

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

I would listen to The Little Prince Again. The Little Prince is one of my favorite books from childhood. I have only been learning french for a few months so it was useful to have a familiar and enchanting dual language story to listen to.The story of The Little Prince is captivating and my whole family enjoyed listening to the adventures of The Little Prince. The story has a beautiful message and memorable characters, exploring themes of spiritual growth, enlightenment, relationships and the danger of narrow mindedness

My favorite character was the fox who wanted to be tamed by The Little Prince. The fox and the Little Prince teach each other about friendship.

A great way to work on your French listening skill

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would because it is a really nice way to be able to practice your French listening skills and vocabulary. I found myself writing down new words I hadn't heard before, and found out what they were which helped me build my vocabulary.

What did you like best about this story?

I really loved the gorgeous storyline throughout the story. It is lovely to listen to in French, and practice my listening skills while the story is read. When the little prince says that the eyes are blind, and that one must look with their heart, I really feel that this sentence resonates with me.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I loved the scene where the little prince first meets the fox. I think that it is a very beautiful scene.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The best moment for me was right at the end when the narrator puts children and grown-ups' perspectives, and how we need to learn to explore our own selves.

Any additional comments?

I really liked the pacing and intonation that the narrators used. It made me feel that I was able to keep up with the story, and understand how I should produce sentences properly in French with the right stresses on the right words.
