My son and I are huge fans of Usborne touchy-feely books, we have read them together since he was a few months old. He is now 11 months and thoroughly enjoys each book! Each board book is perfect for babies and toddlers to handle without you having to worry about torn pages. They withstand drooling, biting and very rough handling and offer a fantastic interactive story. The illustrations are bright and vibrant

Each page begins with "That's not my monkey" and reads;

It's ears are too soft
It's tail is too velvety
It's feet are too smooth
It's eyebrows are too hairy
It's tongue is too fuzzy
The final page reads " THAT's my monkey! It's tummy is so fluffy.

Each page has a corresponding texture for your child to discover.

My son loves to point out the textured section on each page and eagerly awaits my praise and claps his hands. I treasure our reading time together each day and have in excess of 10 Usborne touchy-feely books and still enjoy each one!

I hope this review was helpful.

I love these books and so do my children. The pictures are captivating even when they were tiny.

As they started growing, they've been enjoying these even more and keep looking for their favourite page in each of them to scratch or touch the different textures although it's true that some adjectives become a bit repetitive across the books but the drawing cover for that.

They are also very solid books with thick pages compared to other ones out there as my children haven't managed to completely tear them apart doing their favourite 'chew on everything everything' activity.

The multi sensory approach along with a simple concept of looking through drawings with bright colours and simple make this a very lovely book that grows with your child as they start learning more words and looking for the right animal (see note at the end).

To sum-up, these books are absolutely brilliant so please don't hesitate.

Note/Spoiler alert: The animal you're looking for is on the last page :)

This series of books is great for babies/toddlers as the bright bold shapes and fun textures really keep them interested. However this particular one is not the best as there's little difference between the monkeys so all the pages are quite similar. I'd suggest you go for the 'puppy', 'dinosaur' or 'kitten' ones instead.
My daughter squeals with excitement when we read That's not my puppy...

My baby LOVES the "that’s not my..." books. Unfortunately this one is not great. There is not enough colour contrast, all is a bit "brown/cream". I would recommend the Dinosaur, Bunny or Snowman books though.

I bought this for my daughter as we already have "That's not my bunny" which she adores. I was worried that this book might have most of the same textures as the other book but I was pleasantly suprised that it had some new textures. I'd highly recommend this book, it's beautifully illustrated and a lovely book to read with your little one.

A friend got this for my six-month-old and it is an instant hit. It's a good one to read because the variation in the stress of the sentence - "THAT'S not my monkey", "that's NOT my monkey", "that's not MY monkey" - can mean a lot of difference to a young child. The textures are something that my daughter will "grow into", I think, although a couple of them - the furry tummy, for instance - can already be enjoyed.

It's a very short book (I think there are only five monkeys, and one's on the front cover) which means it's good for playing rather than bedtime.

The only thing some people might find weird is that the monkey with the hairy eyebrows has vague similarities to both Bernard Ingham and Leonid Brezhnev, but for me, that just makes it better.

I bought this book for my son who is 5 months old. He loves it. The colours are so bright he gets excited when we look at it together. I also bought him another book from the series because he enjoyed it so much. The book shows no sign of damage from him trying to chew it. I think he will like the touchy-feely bits when he is a bit older though.
Overall a great starter book for a young baby.
