Did you grow up with a Highlights magazine subscription? Were you looking forward to the inspiring stories, yummy recipes and fun activities that the mailman would drop in the mailbox every month, with your name on it?
Well thank goodness Noor Kids has arrived! They make Islamic education fun, exciting, and engaging.
Noor Kids is a 28-page, full-color, print book that is delivered to your home every three months (four times a year). The books feature games, activities and Islamic inspired stories for three to eight year olds.
“It’s necessary that our content be engaging to little Muslims, else our altruistic mission will never be achieved. In order to develop engaging content, we subscribe to a secret recipe consisting of character development, continuous improvement, and story sampling,” say brothers and creators Amin and Mohammed Aaser.
The main characters in many children’s books are more often white, while African-American, Asian and Hispanic characters usually appear in secondary roles.
“It’s important for Muslim children to be able to seem themselves in today’s literature, and experience plots, values and stories that they share with the characters,” says Sam’n Iqbal, author of the Islamic alphabet book, Allah to Z.
Noor Kids is a much needed addition for all American-born Muslim children.
