Living abroad, many parents want to teach Vietnamese language and culture to their children, but find it difficult to buy such books.

To solve this problem, the tinywrist bookmaking team, consisting of Vietnamese parents from many countries, spent a lot of time and effort to gather and publish Vietnamese bilingual books for Vietnamese children abroad.

Within six months after the group formed, Tinywrist released two bilingual books (Vietnamese-English) in the US and other countries such as the UK and Canada.

They are “10 Khuc Dong Dao” and “Mau Cua Tet”.

In addition to books, Tinywrist also makes bilingual albums of familiar children's songs to introduce and arouse love for the national culture for Vietnamese children wherever they live.

 

The book “10 Khuc Dong Dao” was selected for a Kickstarter "Project We Love" and “Mau Cua Tet” was listed among the books about Tet worth reading by Ditto magazine (USA).

Even parents in Vietnam have responded enthusiastically to Tinywrist’s bilingual books as there are no bilingual books on folklore for children. The books help children in Vietnam learn English and love Vietnamese culture.

In addition to books, Tinywrist also makes bilingual albums of familiar children's songs to introduce and arouse love for the national culture for Vietnamese children wherever they live.

In the near future, the team will make a set of books to welcome the Mid-Autumn Festival and the Lunar New Year and complete an album of familiar children's songs.
