The Yellow Cow

Jolly Animals: Inclusive children's books inspired by animals from The Quran and other holy books.

At Jolly Animals, we write animal fables inspired by verses from The Holy Books.

The Quran, for example, has excellent human role models to write children's books about. However, the prohibition to depict them in image form means our babies and toddlers cannot ‘see’ or ‘play’ with those characters, making it almost impossible for them to build bonds with them at such a young age.

All holy books use animals to teach us valuable life lessons. To write our fables, we study the verses that mention an animal and write a children’s book inspired by them. The stories rhyme like the Quran, and also keep the same structure, order and moral.

We want to build a brand that matches the ethics of the book it is inspired from. We’re trying our best to do the right thing towards the environment, people producing our products, and children who can’t afford it. Click here to find out how it all began.

Coming Soon: The Yellow Cow, IN ARABIC.

The Yellow Cow in Arabic is an unfinished translation by my late father.

In September, my father passed away of a sudden brain stroke, leaving behind an unfinished Arabic draft of The Yellow Cow book.

In Ramadan 2019, We successfully crowdfunded the first edition print of The Yellow Cow in Arabic! This campaign was our chance to gift my father's soul an ongoing charity of beneficial knowledge.

“When a man dies, his good deeds come to an end except three: ongoing charity, beneficial knowledge, and righteous offspring who will pray for him.”

Prophet Mohamed (PBUH), as narrated by Abu Hurairah

Meet The Yellow Cow.

The story of a special yellow cow.

The Yellow Cow is a children’s book about a cow that is different in every way. The book takes her on a journey of self-discovery. She notices that some one is looking for her.

As she tries to understand why, she discovers that everything that makes her different, is exactly what makes her special. The Yellow Cow learns to love who she is, no matter how much she stands out from the herd.

Reading this book to our children, we want them to know that it is OK to be different. In fact, it is something to be celebrated.
