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 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.

Touchy-feely books are a great way to encourage lots of interaction between parent and child, and this range from Usborne Publishing does it best.
If you don’t want the babies and toddlers to miss out on the monstrous fun, we recommend Fiona Watt’s delightful “That’s not my monster...” Little ones will delight in stroking a fluffy monster ear or touching some bumpy paws. Bright, bold and suitably robust (after all, it’s not just the monsters who have teeth...)

That's not my monster
My son James is now 15 months old and this book was given to him when he was about 3 months. I showed him the pictures most evenings and as time progressed he began to feel the different textures. Now he turns the pages on his own until we get to the third monster, at which point he stops and just looks at me and laughs! Maybe he thinks that particular monster looks like his mummy! This book is brilliant and lots of fun to get the little ones started with reading.
