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."

“"That's not my penguin..."”
Ever since his Grandma bought this book, my 11 month old son has thoroughly enjoyed it! He knows exactly where all the touchy/feely bits are in the book. I thought I'd check your website to see if there were anymore to collect and thank goodness there are! Grandma will be pleased!
“Unlike other board books, there are swatches of different textures on each page designed to encourage your little one to explore and play independently.”

“I’m a huge fan of the That’s not my… series of books. I don’t know anyone who can resist opening these to run their fingers over the different panels before saying ‘wow, that is really fuzzy/soft/shiny’. They’re another example of a book that’s great for any age so can be shared with babies or older siblings too.”
