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.

We really enjoyed reading this book, it is, as always with this series, great for my sons sensory development and he enjoys seeing what is on the next page. Our favourite was the baby owls!
Toppsta reviewer
My son loves the little mouse hiding on each page. Each page is very tactile. There is a tufty owl, an owl with rough wings and an owl with fuzzy wings to name but a few. A real favourite in this house.
Toppsta reviewer
My little granddaughter really enjoys this book. The pictures are so bright and clear and there are 'feely' bits on every page which she absolutely loves! The language is repetitive yet also introducing new words such as beak and wing.
