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 book was given to my (then) five and a half month old daughter as a Christmas present from her penguin loving Auntie. It has very quickly become her favourite book.
The illustrations are lovely- simplistic but drawing on a variety of real species of penguin which makes it much more appealing to look at. There are a good range of textures for babies to explore- although currently Lelaina is only interested in the fuzzy tummy on the cover which she likes to scratch, and the furry baby on the final page-she is always very eager to pinch the fur in her fingers, and often complains when the book is closed!
The repetition of the text makes me sure this will remain a fun book for some time to come as when she gets older I'm sure she will enjoy reciting the story herself.

with a different touch, even to the front cover!

From the back cover:-

'This delightful series of board books is aimed at very young children.
The bright pictures, with their patches of different textures, are designed to develop sensory and language awareness.
Babies and toddlers will love turning the pages and touching the feely patches.'

10 sturdy board pages in the popular 2-page spread, with a line of clear, easy-to-follow text on each.
This book is further enhanced by those 'patches' and the repeat on the words:-

'That's not my penguin'.

Colourfully illustrated throughout, by Rachel Wells.

Example of text:-

'That's not my penguin.
Its wings are too velvety.

That's not my penguin.
Its head is too silky.

That's not my penguin.
Its .....'

until a positive result is achieved!

Super book which appeals to the youngest participants in our Library tot group, with the more observant eager to turn the page to find the little mouse as much as touch the 'feely' bits!

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!

I have ordered a few of the 'thats not my .... ' book as gifts for my nephews and my friends offspring and I have recieved postve feedback from both children and parents. My eldest nephew (now 7) often enjoys reading these books to his younger brother. He also enjoyed these stories being read to him. The little mouse to find on every page also is also loved by the children.

7-month old daughter loves this!! Unlike some other stories in the range, this one has large 'feely bits' to touch and she literally hones in on the sensory areas which are large enough to see.

The last page is her favourite where she gets to stroke a furry penguin chick.

My son is a huge fan of these books, got his first at 9months now 18 months and he goes to the bookshelf and brings em to me to read when he wants to read em which is at least twice a day. They all pretty similar tho so wouldnt get too many as alot of repetition with the rough smooth shiny feels etc but I guess the different pictures is good for em.
