That's not my penguin...

Press Reviews

This range of touchy-feely books have been baby and toddler must-haves for 20 years.
The Sun
These wonderful books are awesome for helping children to develop. The stories are perfectly interactive and their simplicity means even the youngest readers will enjoy them and relate to them.
The Sun
The hardwearing pages, simple illustrations, repetition and lovely touchy-feely elements to each page make the [That's not my...] books ideal for reading with your child.
The Independent
Unlike other board books, there are swatches of different textures on each page designed to encourage your little one to explore and play independently.
That's My Baby blog
I’m a huge fan of the That’s not my… series of books. I don’t know anyone who can resist opening these to run their fingers over the different panels before saying ‘wow, that is really fuzzy/soft/shiny’. They’re another example of a book that’s great for any age so can be shared with babies or older siblings too.

"That's not my penguin..."
Ever since his Grandma bought this book, my 11 month old son has thoroughly enjoyed it! He knows exactly where all the touchy/feely bits are in the book. I thought I'd check your website to see if there were anymore to collect and thank goodness there are! Grandma will be pleased!
