What is the target age group for your books?
Noor Kids is targeted for 3 to 8 year olds. For younger children (3-5), Noor Kids is a ‘read along’ in which the stories are read to children. For older children (6-8), Noor Kids can be read individually.
However, given the religious nature of our content, we strongly recommend that parents read with children such that they can use the text as a tool to connect with their children around religion.
Do you work with any religious scholars when producing Noor Kids?
Our goal is to create compelling content for Islamic education for all Muslim children in North America, as a result, we do not subscribe to a specific religious school. The principles addressed within Noor Kids books are those that are agreed upon between the primary Islamic religious schools.
We seek counsel on the development of our books from American-Muslim scholars, such as Shaykh Omar Suleiman, instructor with Al Maghrib Institute, and Shaykh Rizwan Arastu, founder of the Islamic Text Institute.
I’m not Muslim, should I be reading Noor Kids?
While Noor Kids is crafted specifically for little Muslims, the concepts addressed in our books are generally universal (i.e. gratitude, honesty, altruism, etc) which makes the books appropriate for just about anybody.
Further, for those interested to learn about the faith of their Muslim neighbors, we’ve discovered that Noor Kids does an exceptional job of introducing Islam.
