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.
