“Give Me a Ticket to Childhood” was translated and published in Thailand in 2011 by Nanmee Books and in the US in 2014 by Overlook Press.

In addition, “I See Yellow Flowers on Green Grass” was published by Hannacroix Creek Books in the US in 2020.

Several works by Nguyen Nhat Anh have also been taught in schools in other countries. For example, "Give me a ticket to childhood" was selected in the list of after-school reading works of students from grades 6-12 of many schools in Thailand. This book is also included in the list of works that second-year students of the Literature Faculty of Chulalongkorn University (Thailand) can choose to write graduation essays about.
