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.

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.

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.

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!

I love these books. We have a big collection of these here at home and my daughter has had many, many hours and days of entertainment from them. I started her on these at about 6 months of age and at 16 months now she still loves to read them.

Each page, including the cover, has a picture with part of it being made of materials that encourage touch, like fur or silk. The wording on each page is simple and rhythmic, making it almost like reading a poem. I find that these books serve many purposes; the material encourages tactile play, the easy use of language helps develop interest in reading and the use of grammar encourages specific lingual habits that aid later learning, and the subjects covered in the book help the child begin to identify those things in reality (like tongue, beard, mane etc). You also find a small white mouse on each page and I found that as my daughter grew she began pouring out the mouse, which led her on to pouring out each item that applied to her, like body parts.

A wonderful and varied series of books that every toddler home should have!

My 1 year old and I love the 'Thats not my.......' Range of books and have done for a number of months, but this isn't my favourite. He can pull tufts of fur off the shaggy main on the last page and the textures aren't as interesting as some of the other books, such as the dinosaur and tractor books.

We were given That's not my lion as a present for our little man, and I can't reccomend it enough. Loads of different textures for baby to enjoy, a fuzzy nose, furry ears, rough paws, fluffy tail and more.
Our son is super rough on his books and wants to "read" them himself (biting, tearing etc) and this book still looks like new.

The best part about it is not only does my husband love it, other male family members do too - there seems to be something about it - and lots of them have sat with our baby reading the book to him.

Highly highly recomend as one of the best baby books of all time. We started reading this from 4 months, and when our son got the hang of aiming his fingers where he wanted aroun 6 months this just took on a whole new level of fun for him. He is still enjoying it now at 10 months old and I imagine will be for much longer.
