Books for kids are plentiful. But as a Vietnamese American Mom, I couldn't find one that speaks to the Vietnamese part of my identity. No wonder it is so hard for many of my friends to speak Vietnamese. Everything surrounding us, from birth, is in English. Vietnamese texts are far and few in between, and even when they are presented, it is often not in the most appealing format.
I wish to change that for our little ones. Let's make books that are both visually appealing and culturally interesting. Let's make books that will be picked up, not because they are the only bilingual texts in the market, but ones that raise admiration and curiosity 💚.
I started in 2020 during the pandemic with a Kickstarter campaign for our first book, 10 Nursery Rhymes from Vietnam. I was overjoyed with the support from our community, and have seen added more books to the collection. We also venture out to making music on YouTube, creating a Facebook group for Vietnamese bilingual families, and many other projects!
Our talented team is globally distributed, with editors, musicians, and artists who love and care about Vietnam and our cultural heritage. Hanoi, Sai Gon, London, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, these are just a few locations. Every product is made with compassion from our hearts. Let us know what you think!
