There are five mischievous squirrels to meet in this touchy-feely board book, all with soft noses, rough paws and fluffy tails. The bright pictures and textured patches for babies and toddlers to stroke are specially designed to develop sensory and language awareness. A delightful book to share with little ones.
“Another welcome addition to this wonderful series of touchy-feely books.”

The award is decided by Practical Pre-School product testers, who said of "That's not my puppy": "This book had immediate appeal for all the children. It is great for a wide age range as the babies enjoy the pictures and textures and the older children enjoy reading the words themselves and developing their vocabulary. It was also good for raising awareness of differences and similarities. It retained appeal for the children throughout the testing period."
Usborne That's not my... Touchy-feely books were voted Best Buy in the Toddler Book Category of the Prima Baby Reader Awards in 2004 and 2006.
“Unlike other board books, there are swatches of different textures on each page designed to encourage your little one to explore and play independently.”

“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.”
“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.”
“After only a couple of times reading this with my daughter and showing her the different textures, she takes the book off to read by herself and knows what bits to feel.”
“The books have thick front and back covers, and thick pages too - so they will withstand babies being rough and chewing them too!”
“Another welcome addition to this wonderful series of touchy-feely books which bring endless smiles and a great to read again and again.”
