Zaydo Potato-A Series to Inspire

Having a strong identity. How do we raise our children with one?

We want our children to be confident. And it all begins with us! Engaging with them. Encouraging them. Providing them with good content! All these possible opportunities, you will see in the Zaydo Potato Series! And that is only part of the reason we love them!

If you’re a revert like me, your kids are already the minority in your family. The school they attend, where you live adds to this as well! Whatever the case may be, knowledge and familiarity go a long way. And through books, you can do just that! In sha Allah.

Who is Zaydo anyway and how is he relevant to my child?

lol well this character was inspired by husband and wife author’s son, Zayd, nicknamed Zaydo Potato. A young muslim kid who finds adventure in his every day playful curiosity such as:

  • hide and seek in their book titled “Can Allah See Me Now?”
  • a big helper in their book titled “A Muslim Superhero”
  • and keeping ties with family members in their book titled “Allah Loves Me”

Each book starts with either a sahih hadith or ayah that relates to the content. While each story is playful, it provides simple Islamic knowledge that children can grasp and understand, in sha Allah, such as:

  • names of Allah in “Can Allah See Me Now”
  • Sadaqah in “A Muslim Superhero”
  • blessings of Allah in “Allah Loves Me”

Truly an all-in-one experience. But how?

This book gets the whole family involved. With two colors of “super-hero” gear to choose from, pretend play is encouraged for boys and girls! Disclosure: Husbands may get involved! I mean we’re talking muslim super hero capes here lol

For your inner teacher or just downright fun, the story is concluded with suggested activities that will promote counting, phonics, shapes, spatial relations, animals, critical thinking and/or matching that put you and your kiddo on a story hunt back through the pages.

Did I mention dawah? When its storytime, and they choose this book to be read by non-muslim family members. Its amazing the connection, the openness, the learning that so effortless takes place. Sub han Allah.

And last but not least, it teaches us muslim parents as well with its Islamic knowledge, be it a refresher or not! Remembrance of Allah is the outcome. In sha Allah.

Noor Kids – Review

We received a box of Noor Kids Comic Books and we love it. Alhamdulillah. From the packaging to the content for both parents and children, its nothing short of wonderful! Check out the cute little box it came in below, bottom right.

I am really impressed by their structure.

  • A series of books that revolve around 4 main characters that are totally cute and muslim! Already sounds like your very own kids, right?! πŸ˜‰ ma sha Allah.
  • Each book starts with a letter to the parents explaining with detail the focus behind the moral of the stories. I love this part because it totally preps you for questions your child(ren) may have. It revolves around good character and islamic knowledge…win win!
  • It has 2 stories related to the title and in between them is an activity section which vary from book to book! Some examples include drawing your house in Jannah in sha Allah, coloring in a prayer mat and even uploading your very own talent of choice to the Noor Kids website.
  • You know how sometimes you read a book to you kid and you wonder, hmmm were you paying attention? Well, Noor Kids got you covered. Each mini story has a couple questions at the end to recap the story and get your child(ren) exercising their thinking skills! In sha Allah. Honestly, the content is so vivid my daughter actually enjoyed this part. If there was a question she didn’t know the answer to, it was because the topic was new to her. This is a great convo starter and learning opportunity for both parents and the kids. Teach them something new and learn something new about them. In sha Allah.
  • And the Noor Kids Passport! My daughter was especially excited about this. Well done with this reward system! Each book comes with a badge that reflects the topic of the book. She just couldn’t wait to add the sticker badge to her passport! Talk about incentive to get through the book first. In sha Allah. She was so ready to just peel it off and place it in her book. Alhamdulillah for the little things that make them happy 😊

I am very happy to be a part of the Noor Kids Family and I think you would be too!

Review-Children’s Book β€œWhat Is A Muslim?”

Review of the children’s book “What Is A Muslim?”


This adorable book teaches our children how to be a good muslim. It highlights the pillars of Islam through easy text and large, colorful pictures. The illustrator, being the author’s 10 year old daughter, makes the images so relatable to our children. Ma sha Allah, a father-daughter collaboration!

The majority of the story is told in a rhyming fashion, a clever way to grab any one’s attention especially our kids! You even can sing along to this story by streaming the nursery-style nasheed mentioned in the back of the book. Vocals also performed by the author, Alhamdulillah.

I really like the simplicity, yet effectiveness of this book in positively teaching our kids, and anyone else, what it truly means to be muslim. Thanks for reading! πŸ’•
