What Our Readers Say
Personally, I loved how the authors used some of the names of Allah and explained their translations. This was excellent way for me to expose my son to the different characteristics of Allah. They even made an additional glossary page in the back that explained the names of Allah further. In addition, there are two pages in the back explaining some tips to the parent on what kind of activities and discussions they could do with their children. For example, telling what shapes are on certain pages or asking about how many animals they can find in the book. We even extended it to asking about their facial expressions and what emotions they might be feeling.
I highly recommend this book to our children! It is a very engaging and interactive book for kids. Ever since we’ve received the book, we read it every night! They love finding the potato on each page! The context of the book is educational and beneficial for children. It’s simply written, and portrays a strong meaning and connection to our Muslim youth. They are able to easily understand the book, as well as relate to Zayd and Kareem. The illustrations are eye-catching, clear, and interesting!
Our family loves the Zaydo Potato books! They’re fun to read and we appreciate how they answer questions kids have in a way kids understand!
We loved the book!!! It’s simple enough for children to enjoy and we made a game out of it finding the cat or the potato…we also played guessing game because each page has so many “every day items” that we can learn about clocks, paint, flowers, etc. I read it to them and they were mesmerized with the pictures. Now My daughter wants to read it to her younger brother same as I read it to them with all the fun and games. One of the things I loved best was the focus on the child in the story. Mommy loves ME ..it’s reinforcing positive self esteem as you read it, very smart way to introduce this level of behavioral thinking at this age.
I love this series. It’s perfect for children. The illustration is very friendly, and the content is age-appropriate and meaningful. So excited for more!!
I love the title of the series. It’s catchy and fun! This first book is a great start to help young readers understand the many reasons why Allah loves them. The author has done a great job in providing plenty of examples of the various blessings Allah grants us, which we unfortunately sometimes take for granted. This is eye opening to the many gifts Allah endows us with. In addition to the beautiful message, the pictures and colors are very pretty and would attract children. It is important that our kids have such books that teach them about their religion and what it means to be a Muslim in the west. Love it!
This book is beautifully written and illustrated. I can’t wait to read more about Zaydo Potato’s adventures. Please keep on writing!
Alhumdulillah. Fun and exciting. My son jumps up and down anxiously when I first open the book. Thank you. We cannot wait for the next adventure.
Invite Zaydo Potato and friends to your school or event for book readings & fun, educational, crowd engaging activities.
