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.

Reader Reviews

That's not my pony
My 1 year old was given this book for her first birthday and she absolutely loves it. She enjoys touching and feeling the different textures and can turn the pages easily. Well done!!

Lovely simplicity
This series is rated 1+, but my son who is only 6 months right now liked the book from the first sight. He turns thick and easy to pick pages to and fro to look at different ponies. He cheerfully hits the pages with his tiny hands, and though he does it unintentionaly at the moment, he touches textures and starts paying attention to the sensations he gets from them. The pictures are simple, but easily recognizable with one-color backgrounds and just a few additional drawings. And this is what makes the book so lovely for a 6 months-old who cannot distinguish many small details at one picture. A great book from all perspectives!

This book is great
My 18 month old daughter loves this book although I personally am getting bored of looking at the same one with her so I will definitely be buying some more from the range.
