"The number one thing I love about the Vietnam quiet books is just that they exist in the first place. I am white, my husband is first generation Vietnamese, and we are trying to raise our delightful multiracial child by showing her the best of all the cultures she makes up." - Mom Breanne
Raising an appreciative multicultural child is not easy, especially when there are not many children's books and toys out there to help your kids connect to their culture. For Vietnamese parents, reading Vietnamese children's books helps, but what if the engagement can be elevated to include fun, sensory-rich play experience as well?
Our popular Vietnam quiet book does just that: offering a special way for children to explore Vietnam vicariously through fun games and discoveries.
Let your little ones immerse in many pretend-play games with the pieces while learning about the unique sights, sounds, and tastes that make the country so special: From the iconic city buildings to hustling bustling streets, from the busy wet market to yummy Phở and Bánh Mỳ, from the vibrant Trung Thu (Mid Autumn Festival) with lanterns and mooncakes, to the rich traditions of Tết (Lunar New Year).
The newest edition also features two dolls - a boy and a girl - with different outfits for hours of pretend dress-up fun. They are little travel companions going through the pages on a tour of Vietnam. As usual, the dolls can be customized so that they most resemble your little ones - with customizable hair color, hairstyle, and skin color!
The first ever quiet book to celebrate Vietnamese culture, this handmade creation is a meaningful gift for any child of Vietnamese descent, or else any family interested in learning about Vietnam.

We're very happy with the book. My 2 year-old played with it for a long time when he first got it, and still likes playing with it now. We also brought the book with us to church to use as a quiet toy. He and a family friend's kid played with the book for a long time. Such a great toy that can keep the little ones busy.
The book comes with a pocket on the back cover to store the pieces when not used. Very well made! We also got a Den Ong Sao for being one of the first people who ordered. They came right before Tet Trung Thu! Highly recommend!
Thank you so much for creating such an amazing book for my kids. I love the details and the personalization. There are so many different ways to play with the book. My kids get to practice many skills while also learning about Vietnamese culture and words. We have had it for several months now and my kids (6yo and 3yo) still take it out to play with. I love the incorporation of different beautiful scenes from Vietnam. My kids loves the shop scene with the pop up banana, practicing counting while placing the flowers, dressing up with the ao dai, and of course making some delicious banh mi =).
Unique and very well done! We love the little details, amazing activities, and thoughtfulness in the inclusion of many of Vietnamese references. My daughter loves dressing up the ao-dai and pretending to eat banh my - super cute! Thank you for creating this book - a family treasure that we will keep for a long time.
