    First of all, I think that this book had a very good story to it and I really enjoyed it. Secondly, I really like how the book has both English and French so that I am able to study French while also being able to fully enjoy the book in English. Right now, my French is not the best so I like that I am able to reference the English parts when needed. I also really love the fact that there is a reading portion to it that is in both English and French. I have never come across a book like this so I was pleasantly surprised by this. This is probably my favorite feature of the book. I honestly have nothing bad to say because like the book entirely over all.
  • Good for Fr.&En. Learners

    The beauty of this audiobook is that you get to practice reading, listening and pronunciation skills all at the same time. It’s great. Audio tracks are broken up by chapter and you’ll see the play button on the title page of each chapter, so if you need to playback anything you can just rewind and fast forward small sections to find it. Since this audiobook has bilingual narrations of the Little Prince, this book would be equally useful for French English language learners.
  • Interesting read for intermediate level French learners

    Reading The Little Prince was such a very exciting experience I must say. When I started reading a few chapters, I was realizing at the same time that this story is giving me lessons about life. I must day that this is appealing to children since they can very much relate to the story being bewildered by grown-ups. It’s funny and I was laughing while reading because adults says alot of crazy things and are acting just like a child sometimes. I sometimes pause and think about my life, about how I ask my son, the crazy things I do too. I was challenged I can say by reading this book. And I love every bit of it because I like it when my brain works. Just like one of the chapters that talks about roses. Why does roses have thorns? I stopped, paused for a moment, I was thinking, thorns don’t really matter? No, they do, its protecting the rose. Sometimes, in life, we ask questions that are not even relevant, we are not digging into the deeper meaning of life. The little prince book just made me crave to know more about the things that is around me. Not only that, While reading this book, I am learning another language which is very interesting. I will never forget this quote at the conclusion part: “I must endure the presence of a few caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies”. This is true, there will be challenges, but we must endure it, if we want to be connected in our world! Reading this book is making me realize how much I neglect little details around me. In my 37 years of existence, I came to a conclusion that I still have a lot to learn!
