  • Amazing book!!!

    Little Price, I love this book!!! It's a classic but specially for French. I think this audio book is a great for an intermediate level to learn French. One of the best way to learn French is to listen to audio books. It expands the vocabulary knowledge as well as shows how to create sentences. I listen to it when I'm on the go (driving, gym, etc.) or relaxing at home. I can stop it at any time and repeat certain sentences or parts of the book if needed. It is a short story, so it is not overwhelming, the pronunciations are very clear and easy to understand and helpful repetition of words makes it easier to learn the vocabulary and phrases easy. I very much enjoyed the small paragraphs, to me personally it is easier to remember the vocabulary when I hear it in a sentence and I know the meaning behind it. It also helps to learn how to build a sentence for conversational purposes. Overall I very much enjoyed the audiobook and would recommend it to anybody.

    The Little Prince was a great dual language ebook! The French translations are provided with every English paragraph which makes it very easy to read and understand. They also provide an audio option as well. This is great to listen to while having the text out. This book is an engaging read for those looking to improve their French! I would highly recommend it to intermediate French speakers.

    This is such a great way to improve your French comprehension! I love that you have a French and English option for both audio AND reading. There were a couple times where I would get confused about which French word was said and it was so easy for me to see which word tripped me up. Each chapter has the audio in French or English so that you can choose which one you want and then read along with it in either language. I haven’t seen this type of dual language learning before and I love it. I wish we had been given this type of learning tool when I was first learning French in high school. It has been so helpful for refreshing my memory on the language.

    This is a wonderful story, so my expectations were high for the popup version. I was blown away. The paper popups are intricate without being flimsy and perfectly bring to life the events and characters. This book helps improved your reading and french skills and it’s also very helpful for your quest to learn French. The audio is very clear and you can practice your reading while listening. The narrator’s voice is paced well to follow and comprehend. This creative new way to learn french or English is very effective. You will also love the quotes and the pictures are beautiful also. Since this book has bilingual narrations, it would be equally useful for French or English language learners. Honestly, this is not just a book, it's a following. The Little Prince is an absolutely wonderful, charming, and classic story and Amazing book! I totally recommend it! It can teach anyone about life lessons that are good to know.
  • Great way to practice French reading and listening

    The Little Prince/Le Petit Prince is a great book for English speakers who are studying French (and French speakers who are studying English, I imagine). The fact that it has each paragraph in English and then in French makes it easy to switch back and forth if I don’t understand something in the French version. I also like that it comes with audio readings of the book in French so that I can practice my listening. I’ve studied the basics of French before and have visited France a couple times and I feel like this is helping to reinforce what I’ve already learned while helping me to grow my reading and listening skills. Would definitely recommend to anyone studying French who wants a little extra help practicing their skills!
  • Great Adaption to Great Story

    As someone who has lived under a rock her entire life and has only just now read Le Petite Prince, all I can say is WOW. I can't believe I've missed this beautiful story for so long! The "grow up, but never grow old" message is strong in this story and I'd be lying if I said that my heartstrings weren't tampered with during the reading of this book. The side-by-side French-to-English text made it easy for me (an English speaker) to freshen up on my French while listening to my native speaker tell the story. Everything is straight to the point and the author did a fantastic job creating something that French and English speaking people can enjoy!
  • Wonderful story, easy to understand in French!

    I loved how “Le Petit Prince” was audibly structured. I am a beginner in French and liked how easy it was to understand. With the French and English translation, you can start to pick up upon words very quickly. It’s broken down into chunks so you can easily go back if you missed something. And, of course, it comes with the downloadable PDF so you can follow along. The narrators have perfect Tone, speed, and pronunciation. And who doesn’t like the classic story of The Little Prince to listen to. I found my 10 year old listening in when I was and she loved it! She was even picking up on some words and she has never even attempted any French! I highly recommend!

    I have never learned French but always wanted. So, I am that person who has zero basic knowledge of French and a big plan to learn this language. And so, I came across a book that I read in Russian. I was skeptical, but the fact that the Little Prince is one of my favorite books made me try. And Voilà !!! I am listening to the Little Prince the second day, and I begin to understand not only new words but also phrases. In my case, having English text and audio helps a lot. I listen to the book in the original language! Oh mon Dieu! Only a genius could come up with such a thing. Besides, the narration is very clear, and it is possible to separate every word. I do not know what exactly says in me: love of the book or the sound of French, but I am sure that the author of this project has put the soul on it. Merci.
  • Very easy to follow and learn

    Not my favorite story but having stories in both English and French alongside each other makes it very easy to see the correlation between languages. Also very helpful to listen to the audiobook to study enunciations.

    Le Petite Prince is a timeless French classic and this is the best way to own it. It comes in both French and English editions in this one book, complete with crisp audio tracks for you to listen along to. The book itself is well structured, featuring a paragraph of French text followed by its English translation. You can easily choose an audio track and read along in your preferred language. This is perfect for those attempting to learn French and are looking for a more interesting exercise than sentence drills, and by the end you will have a piece of classic literature under your belt to show for it!
