Awards

Practical Pre-School Silver Award 2009

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."

Prima Baby Reader Awards "Best Buy" 2004 and 2006

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.

“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.

Press reviews

“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.”
