That's Not My... Series

by ,
  • (118 reviews)

    The multi-award winning “That’s Not My” series are brightly illustrated board books with a simple, repetitive text. Written by author Fiona Watt and illustrated by Rachel Wells, these books are perfect for babies and toddlers with their touch-and-feel elements to explore on each page. The series was designed to foster both sensory awareness and language development, and the way the books are written also helps very young children start to think about differences and similarities. Not only are these books great from a child development perspective but they are also a firm favourite with children under three for independent play as they can explore the textures and enjoy the bright colours on their own.
     
    The books are a fantastic way to introduce a first bedtime story for babies and as they get older children love to “read along” as they learn the text by heart and find the little mouse hiding on every page. They are sturdy enough to be dragged around and looked at again and again and can be a lifesaver when you are out and about!
     
    Practically every parent knows this series and after twenty years of publishing, there are 69 books so far and more to come. From robots to dinosaurs, unicorns to meerkats, trucks to mermaids, you’ll find any topic your child is drawn to. No matter what the subject, they are interactive and colourful, and each book has the squidgy, sparkly, ridgy, fluffy and furry textures that toddlers adore.

      That's not my duck...

      Another in the 'That's Not My' series. This one has a lovely bright cover, and he really enjoyed the big shiny beak of the duck. Lots of fun as always...
