4.0 out of 5 stars Happy I bought this book for my baby daughter 28 Nov 2001
Format:Board book
I bought "That's Not My Lion" for my daughter when she was 10 months. The book is solidly made with rounded corners and thick (non-tear) pages. Each page (even the cover) features a small textured section that doubles as a body part of a lion (ears, paws, tail etc.,). From the first time she watched me read the book, and then take her finger to rub the textured area, my daughter has been hooked. Even bottles of milk are put to one side to sit with Dad and read through the book together. For that alone, it is easily worth the money.

My one-year old son has enjoyed the "That's not my..." series since he was about 6 months old and this latest title did not disappoint. I'm convinced that he recognised it as being similar to the books such as "That's not my train" which he returns to again and again. This title introduces new textures and there is slightly more detailed illustration on each page than in the previous books - giving you items to discuss with your young reader. The chunky pages also allow older babies to explore the book on their own.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely... but repeated elsewhere 3 April 2010
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
We have That's not my... dinosaur, monster, baby and this one - tractor. (The 'baby' one is the current favourite but moreso because it is a bit different because it has a mirror at the end). And we do love these books - honest - but it does seem already noticeable that some of the materials, fabrics and adjectives are repeated in the different books.

I would always recommend these books to anyone looking for a good book for their baby but I would also suggest that, if you already have some, check the pages 'in person' first if possible. I just think they will have a bit more longevity if each and every one is different - rather than recycled!

We do enjoy the tractor one but because it is not 'face' based, it doesn't command as much attention. I did think, seeing the first page that has sheep in the trailer, that the theme would have been carried through and farm animals included on each page to capture the imagination, but this isn't the case unfortunately. Maybe this is one that baby will be more interested in when he is a bit older and get in to diggers, lorries etc.? A nice addition to our bookcase - but not our book of choice at present.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have! 19 May 2007
Format:Board book
This was the first Usborne book I bought for my son, and it's still one of his favorites. He loves to roar along with each lion and find the tactile part of the pages. A beautiful book, wonderfully illustrated and excellent for the age group. A definite must-have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lion For My Leo 29 Aug 2006
Format:Board book
My 1 year old son loves this book, he has the dragon and the robot too. they are very bright and pretty with lovely pictures so different to touch. My son loves to turn the thick pages and goes straight for the rough or smooth textures every time.

These are great books for both boys and girls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth its weight in gold 27 Feb 2007
Format:Board book
I purchased this book thinking it was just another book when my son was 6 months old and it wouldn't get looked at like numerous others. My son loves it and passes it to me every single day. I know the pages inside out as does he. He touches the pages in the right place and his face lights up when he touches the right touchy parts on the page. Teaches colours and touch and there is a little mouse on every page to find. I guess it would also help with reading but my son is only 14 months and a bit young for that yet. I have 3 other titles in the range and would recommend them to any parent that is prepared to read to their child. You have to buy more because there is only so much of the same book you can take!!!!
