    "The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint- Exupery"
    What made the experience of listening to El Principito (The Little Prince): English - Spanish Dual Language Edition the most enjoyable?

    The Little Prince is the perfect classic that it will help you to improve your English/ Spanish skills. It has been very easy for me to follow the story as the pronunciation is really clear and as it has the same chapter division is quite useful to listen to both so you will be able to compare them and catch some new words. <br/>I have truly enjoyed this book, no matter how many times you have read it already, it will make you think and appreciate the little things once again. Strongly recommended.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is definitely the fox which is the one who teaches us the value of love and friendship. The most famous frase from this book is his: " It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eyes".


    What does Shanna Stoker and Ximena Garcia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Both speakers and their voice acting makes you travel to the Little Prince's world.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Big values of the Little Prince"


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended.

    Story
    "You cannot miss the bilingual audiobook version."
    Would you consider the audio edition of El Principito (The Little Prince): English - Spanish Dual Language Edition to be better than the print version?

    The Little Prince is a timeless French classical book that is usually included in those lists about books you must read before you. No matter you have read the written book, you cannot miss the bilingual audiobook version. It is a great tool when learning a new language. Apart from pausing and rewinding the story as many times as you want, you can also listen to it in both languages and compare and contrast the phrases.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In spite of being a short book, there is a variety of topics, so the listener acquires a diverse vocabulary. Moreover, there are many repetitions, which are very useful to retain what has been learnt. <br/>It is a classic that is not out of fashion and is aimed at both children and adults. Due to being and audiobook, it can be enjoyed in family. The little ones will enjoy a funny and crazy fairy tale, while the adults, will discover a lot of metaphors and allegories used to deal with political, social issues, nature and life in general.


    What does Shanna Stoker and Ximena Garcia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The two narrators speak at a good speed, clearly, and pausing when it is appropriate. When other characters appear, they modulate the voice and do a good performance exercise. As a result, the listening is dynamic and entertaining.

    "Perfect for young learners!"

    Definitely recommended for people practicing their language rather than new beginners but the story does makes it ideal for young learners and children. The order might be better if it was read chapter by chapter in both languages rather than the whole story in Spanish followed by the story in English. On the whole, it's a lovely little read with fun narrators and a really nice way of practicing new vocab and a new language whether it be English or Spanish!

    "Beautiful story that you will learn from!"
    Any additional comments?

    I have greatly enjoyed El Principito - The Little Prince in audiobook format. Even though I usually read books in paper version, this was a new pleasant experience. While listening to it, I have been simultaneously reading the pdf version of the book. It was very easy to follow the narration as the narrator made smooth transitions, her voice was varied and changing the tone of voice where conversations occurred made it even more interesting to listen to.<br/>El Principito - The Little Prince audiobook is a great tool for beginner learners of Spanish or for the ones with some knowledge, who want to develop their listening, reading and communication skills in Spanish. I have been studying Spanish for about two years at university, however, after a while of not using the language, most of my knowledge has faded. As I was listening to the book, I was able to understand some of the sentences, recognised some familiar words I once used to know, but I have also learnt a lot of new words and phrases. It also helped to remember how Spanish sentences are constructed and how the words are derived based on tense and gender.<br/>In order to understand the story, I found it easier to listen to the audiobook while also following it on a pdf version, but just because I am more a visual learner. I truly believe it is a wonderful book that you can learn from, not only because two languages, but also because you can learn from the beautiful story of the little prince.<br/>I have noticed only one minor discrepancy in chapter numbering. Chapter 6 on the audiobook was actually a chapter 4 on the pdf. Other than that, I would recommend it to all book lovers!

    "An excellent classic."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. It is one of the greatest children's book ever written. With the various language formats, it can be enjoyed by many listeners.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Prince, of course. His character was very human and understandable. I think this is what makes this book great for children, but adults can also relate to the experiences the Prince goes through.


    What does Shanna Stoker and Ximena Garcia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The additional narrators brought even more life into the story.


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

    There were multiple moments in the book that stood out to me.

    "Super great to brush up on your Spanish"

    Listening to El Principito everyday has really helped me review my Spanish again. I was taught Spanish for 6 years in school and stopped practicing it about 4 years ago. Hearing it again on a consistent basis and matching it with the English version of The Little Prince is helping to restart that part of my brain and I am remembering more and more Spanish. Listening to audiobooks in the language you are trying to learn is a very smart thing to do, it keeps your brain active in that language and associating words with the words you're learning. This is great for kids and adults alike!

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

    I'm glad i got this book! I took a few years of Spanish in school but haven't used the language in quite a while. I was a little hesitant to go straight into a full dual language book but I'm happy I did. Listening to this book really helped bring back a lot of my knowledge I thought I had forgotten. I'm also having a good time working through the written pdf. It's much more fulfilling and entertaining to work through a real story instead of a textbook. I've also been reading it aloud from the pdf to my daughter to get her more familiar with Spanish.

    "Lovely story!"

    The Little Prince is one of the most beloved childhood stories, imagine being able to share that beautiful tale with your children in both English and Spanish. With this audio book The Little Prince or El Principitio, the story from your childhood comes to life. Each paragraph is spoken in English, with a soothing voice, and then re-spoken in Spanish with clear and concise language.

    My son and I listened to this book in the car, and at first he was a little confused about the "weird talking" but once I explained to him what was really going on he quickly caught on, and even picked up a few words. After we did our errands and got back into the car he asked if we were going to listen to principito again. How could I say no?

    I have taken 5 years of Spanish myself and could easily follow along with the Spanish version of the story. I was also able to pick out a few new words that I learned!

    This book is just gorgeous. You will totally enjoy the experience of listening to the little prince the way that you are familiar with, and then in a brand new way. Learning and nostalgia all in one.

    "A good book to improve your Spanish"


    El Principito is fantastic for brushing up one's Spanish and/or a good supplement for people learning the language. The narrator moves at a speed that is easy to keep up with, although at points it feels a bit fast paced. She also does a good job of changing her voice so the listener knows who is talking during the story. Another plus is that the story also comes in English, so if you're new to or aren't too confident in your Spanish, this would be a good way to know whats going on before listening to the Spanish version as you can inference the words being used. The English version is also enjoyable and will keep you engaged in the story.

    In all, this was very pleasurable and helpful to listen to and would recommend it for novice Spanish speakers

    "A great way to get exposure to Spanish!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of El Principito (The Little Prince): English - Spanish Dual Language Edition to be better than the print version?

    For the purpose of improving your listening skills, obviously this is better than the book, but I would recommend listening to the book while following along in print - at least the first time. It helps to distinguish any words that might be unfamiliar to you!


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

    It was! Unfortunately I only have an hour at a time during my commute. The chapters are short and move quickly, keeping me engaged.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book! I listened to the Spanish version, and was very impressed by the narrator's - a native Spanish speaker - ability to speak very clearly to aid comprehension while still keeping the language authentic. I took Spanish in high school, and have had some use of it in my workplace, but I found this book to be an excellent way of picking up new words. The repetition of words gave me multiple opportunities to hear the words in different contexts and figure out their meaning organically. I will likely re-listen to this book several times to get more out of it.
