“Four Very Special Animals” is Itsy Bitsy Muslims' latest children’s book, sing-along, and video project. It is a book and sing along which teaches kids the importance of being a follower of Sayyidna Muhammad (pbuh), and how that connection makes them special. What makes each of the animals special? The book asks this question for each of the animals. It then suggest some silly answers which are guaranteed to make kids giggle. Finally it reaveals the real answer that they are special because they were owned by Sayyidna Muhammad (pbuh). Our goal with this book and singalong is to strengthen children's Muslim identity, by exposing them to content that makes them proud of being Muslims and followers of Sayyidna Muhammad (pbuh).
In these difficult times, Muslims, their faith, and the symbols of their faith - especially Sayyidna Muhammad (pbuh) - seem to be under continuous attack. We are repeatedly bombarded with negative stereotypes about Islam and the Prophet of Islam. These negative stereotypes aim to put doubts in the hearts and minds of Muslims about their religion and about their prophet (pbuh).
This book and sing-along will have Muslim children repeatedly sing-along to the following:
“Prophet Muhammad is the greatest man of all times”.
Essentially, by supporting this campaign and pre-ordering our new book, you will be helping Itsy Bitsy Muslims create content that will counter the anti-Muslim narrative in the minds and hearts of our children.
We have also recorded two versions of the sing-along, one with music and one with duff and vocals. They are free to download with your purchase.
WHAT DRIVES US?
Our love for Allah, His prophet, His creation and these words from the Holy Qur'an:
"Say (to them), rejoice with Allah's favors and with His mercy...".
We also want to help promote a positive Muslim identity in children, and of course, we would love to play a small part in sharing the joy with you!

Promoting a Positive Identity in Our Kids
The idea behind the book is to inform the reader, in a fun and simple way, about the basics of being a Muslim. Unlike other children's books which only teach the five pillars of Islam, this book aims to show that the purpose of practicing the five pillars of Islam is to be an upstanding human being, to be sweet, to be merciful and also to be caring. In today's world where there are so many misconceptions about Islam. We believe books like this can help foster more tolerance and understanding. The author of the book is a nasheed (Islamic songs) singer/songwriter. The text of this book rhymes, and can be sung as a nursery rhyme. Kids can easily learn the lyrics and sing along.
This is a father and daughter project. The talented illustrator is the author's 10-year-old daughter.
Most of the toys and dolls our kids play with today represent ideals which are far from the values and ideals we wish to instill in our children. Study after study shows that children learn most during their play time. With toys like our dolls and puppet, kids can imagine a world where Muslim kids like themselves are the heroes in the story.
