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 not my pirate
This book has been my son's favorite since we purchased it when he was 8 months old! He loves to turn each page and feel the different textures and look at the shiny sword. This is one of the best books in his collection. Thank you Usborne!

That's not my pirate
My daughter loves That's not my Pirate, especially the mouse on every page! Her favourite Pirate is the last one as she loves his fluffy beard and the skull and crossbones on his hat, whenever i see any of the books in this range i buy them for my daughter as she simply loves them, we nearly have them all now, I recommend these books to any mums & dads with young children.
