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.
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.

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".

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.
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.
