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.
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 :)
They are brightly coloured and me and my son get to spend some lovely quiet, one on one time before bed time.
Would recommend these for anyone with young babies and children
I only found out last week that there were more books in the "That's not.." series and I quickly ordered this monkey version, as her favourite toy is actually a cuddly monkey, which goes everywhere with her and as parents, we watch carefully as she'd be so sad if she lost it.
To say she loves the book is an understatement! We have just been through it 5 times, me reading aloud to her as she turns the pages and runs her hands over the different textures.... she's a big fan of the hairy eyebrows of one of the monkey's!
Excellent artwork and fun images, along with the different textures, are clearly stimulating for babies and toddlers. Who doesn't love reading them, knowing you can get to the last page and excitedly exclaim "That's my monkey!!"?
Highly recommended and I'll certainly be buying more for her soon.
