A touchy-feely board book with simple, repetitive text, tactile patches and bold illustrations suitable for babies and toddlers. A little, white mouse appears on every page, for children to spot.

This book is great for babies with lots of different textures to touch & cute story. My daughter now happily sits with the book on her own finding the textures and roaring like a lion.
These books are a bit hit in our household

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.

This is a great series for the little ones - exposing them to different textures, and words to describe these. Good sturdy books suitable for taking a battering from babies and toddlers. A lovely story enjoyed by both my boys, who fight to touch the relevant part on each page.

Good tactile book, with lots of different materials to feel and stiff board pages that are easy to turn for my 7 month old. Clear pictures, would definitely recommend this book.

This has been baby Ethans favourite book of the series so far. He spent a lot of time playing with the tactile patches and my toddler loved roaring along. These books are great for smaller children.

My baby daughter really enjoys looking at the pictures in this book as they are so clear and colourful. I was a little bit disappointed with this book in comparison to others in this series, because three of the textures are very similar. The lion's ears, tail and mane are all made of similar furry material. Although this still introduces three different adjectives, we also have 'That's Not My Hedgehog' at home, where there are completely different textures on every page, and I think I prefer that book. My daughter doesn't seem to mind too much, though!
