The release of Israeli bestseller “The Soul Bird” is based on the cooperation of the Embassy of Israel to Vietnam and Kim Dong Publishing House.
The Israeli Embassy in Hanoi hopes that the book will contribute in promoting reading habits of the young generation in Vietnam.
Michal Snunit's "The Soul Bird" has been translated into 25 languages and a bestseller around the world for ten years since its first publication.
Its appeal is similar to that of St Exupéry's The Little Prince, using the simple language of childhood to convey a deeper philosophical message for us all. The book was awarded the first international prize for children books in Geneva in 1993 and the Book of the Year by the Ministry of Education in Mexico in 2006.
Author of books for children, Michal Snunit was born in Kibuttz Ein Hahoresh, Israel. She studied theatre and literature at Tel-Aviv University, and worked in agriculture before becoming a journalist and magazine editor from 1976 to 1980.
