For Elementary Students:
The Lotus Seed, by Sherry Garland, is a picture book which tells a moving story about a family from Vietnam who are forced to flee and emigrate to the US.

Leaving Vietnam: The Journey of Tuan Ngo, by Sarah Kilborne. This is an upper-level beginning reader book with a sad story but a good ending which I think does a good job of explaining to the children how Vietnamese families suffered to leave their war-torn nation.

10,000 Days of Thunder, by Philip Caputo.

Vietnam War, a DK Eyewitness book.
