Vietnamese Children Books for Everyone


I own two books from local authors I know:

Tran Khan Khuyet Little Weaver of Thai-Yen Village. It is out of print but you can find used copies online. The book illustrates the life of young Vietnamese girl whose life is interrupted by the Viet Nam war.

The second is Going Home Coming Home by Truong Tran. This story follows a girl on her first time journey to visit Viet Nam.

They’re both excellent books with substance, colorful illustrations, and written in both languages. Non-Vietnamese folks or books that are translated into Vietnamese. Hint—we need more children book authors in our community!

Adopt Vietnam has a recommended reading list as well. Do you have any bilingual book recommendations?
