Lila loved seeing all the different colours in this book! She found the textures of the pages fun and was inquisitive - I was very impressed that one was also on the cover! She now grabs this book and giggles and it's one of her favourites!

As with all of this series of books, this is a hit. However I think the shiny material within book has made this my sons favourite! 

Lots of repetitive phrases which helps him learn.

My sons enjoyed exploring the different textures in this book. Each dinosaur is brightly coloured and looks different from the last, so both babies were eager to turn the page to look at the next one.

The “that’s not my” series of books are a favourite in our household, and when I came across the dinosaur one I was in awe!! My sons most favourite thing ever is dinosaurs and his eyes lit up as soon as he saw it! He loved reading it together and also getting involved with the book and was amazed by all the colours and touchy parts! Amazing

We have Quite a few of ‘That’s not my...’ books and I would highly recommend them.

The pictures are bright, and the textures are great, they are fun and great to find the different textures on each page. A very interactive book.


All the books are very similar, but its nice to have the set.

My son received this book as a birthday present and instantly loved it! The bright colours really hold his attention and you can see the fascination in his face when feeling all the different textures. He particularly likes the furry ones. 

Our collection of the series is now growing steadily!

My 18 month old loves this book, its very tactile, so introduces little ones to different textures. We enjoy looking for the little mouse that hides on each page and my son practices his dinosaur noises with each turn of the page. My older children who are 4 and 6 both enjoy reading this to their baby brother as the language is simple enough for beginner readers.

This is my sons favourite That's not my... book probably because he loves dinosaurs. There are soft bits, smooth bits, rough bits, all great different textures for a young child to explore. He also loves trying to spot the mouse on each page.

This book in the "That's not my" series is one of my daughter's favourites. For all it's maybe getting a little young for her she still really enjoys the format and joins in with the words all the way through. She enjoys the touchy-feely elements and enjoys engaging with the illustrations. Speaking off, the illustrations are charming and follow the usual style of the series. They are bright and appeal to children. It's a quick read but no bad thing as it's a great one to squeeze in between longer books.
This series of books are a wonderful way of engaging children with books and encouraging their interactive; this book is no exception. There is a white mouse to spot on each page which is a great way to promote children's interest for the entirety of the book.

My baby son loves the bright colours and tactile aspects of these books and dinosaurs are now starting to interest him. My toddler daughter also really enjoyed reading this book and roaring along as we read it. They love the "That's not my..." range of books.

This is our favourite book from the collection. Bright colours and durable with something to interact with on each page, its great for keeping the little one engaged when reading. There is always a race to spot the little mouse on each page too!

It could be just a simple book to read to a child, BUT it is more than that. It is a book to touch, feel and learn language (redundancy
allowed). I use it to teach English to my 3 year old daughter. It is just perfect. There you have colourful pictures of different dinosaurs, like a red T-rex, a green brontosaurus... You can start by this already. Exploring colours and name of dinos. Making voices and gestures. THEN you have this little mouse who is looking for his dinosaur. Ok! Time to get a lovely dinosaur toy to you kids or buy one if he or she still does not have one. They can listen to the story hugging their lovely teddy dinos. A range of vocabulary can be explored and touched along the reading. Parts of the body of the dinosaur and its characteristics in the book like fuzzy tail, rough horns, bumpy teeth... The target language comes all the way with 'that's not my dinosaur' and ends up with 'That IS my dinosaur. No need to say how perfect it is to reinforce affirmative and negative language structures. I read, she reads, we play, she learns English (she is Portuguese and French bilingual) and builds her love for books.

Another from the 'That's not my...' range which are very popular in our house as there's a tactile item on each page. It's very simple with just the dinosaur on each page and a little mouse to look for. My little girl is nearly two and is starting to move on from these books so I think they are probably most suitable for babies and very young toddlers.

I think this series is like the tabloid edition of children's books....not much substance!
