This is a festive addition to the best-selling and award-winning touchy-feely series. The enduring appeal of Rachel Well's illustrations and the opportunity to touch a variety of textures make these books baby and pre-school classics. Very young children will enjoy the bright and colourful illustrations while the different texture patches help develop sensory awareness.

We have read a lot of 'That's Not My...' books previously so we're very excited to see a Christmas edition. Just like all the others it is very high quality with various textures to feel on each page. At only a year old my son can sometimes get restless listening to a story but this book is so interactive he wanted to keep reading it over and over again. One of our favourite things is that there is a little mouse hidden in each page which kept my older son entertained trying to spot it. This made a great addition to our Christmas Eve box.

Great book - especially near Christmas time. As with all these books, the touch and feel element really helps to engage kids with holding and reading a book. Also introduces good descriptive words to little ones. Good book for under 2s.

My children love this series of books and I’m sure these have contributed to the speech development of my 2 year old.
My 3 month old daughter loves to touch the textures on the pages, while my 2 year old enjoys reading the story as well.
The illustrations are simple with bold colours which are ideal for younger babies. 
Being short books they are ideal for youngsters to learn to read and with their thick board pages, they are easy for small hands to turn the pages too.
I would highly recommend this series of books to anyone with children under 3, although I’m sure older kids would love them too!

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.

An ideal xmas present

Lovely book with lots of textures for baby to enjoy. Not too much of a different story as it falls inline with the that's not my theme of books but a lovely little gift

A fabulous book to the series of 'That's no my....' bright, colourful, touchy feel perfect to read/show to young readers to capture their imaginations. We love Santa's beard the most.

This is a must for every child Christmas book box. My 10 month old daughter loves the different textures on each page, she remains engaged  to the very last page. It's design is full of bright interesting colours and the tough card pages stand up to the abuse of a very curious child. The hidden mouse on each page will help an older child stay interested. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with younger children.

We have read many of the 'that's not my' books but santa is a favourite in our house. Even now the kids both like reading it even though Santa has already been :) they love each touchy feely page and get so excited to see their Santa at the end. Huge smiles on both their faces :)

A nice festive touchy feely book that my 1 yr old enjoyed. She is almost two and so understands Christmas and want A a lot better so it is nice to share these sorts of Christmassy books with her. Lots of fun Santa pictures with different patches of material on each page. Nice and sturdy and easy for her to enjoy with me or alone.

The sensory pages holding her attention most of the time and she loves the Santa's  beard most.
