There are five amazing dragons to meet in this magical addition to the much-loved That’s not my... series. Babies and toddlers will love turning the pages and touching the textured patches as they try to find their dragon. The bright pictures and textured patches to stroke are designed to help develop sensory and language awareness.

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.

This was the first of many touchy feely books I bought. My son is 2 years old and he still isn't bored of the many wonderful books he has in this series. He wants more and always makes me read all of them almost every night. It's amazing and so brilliant. Keep 'em coming.
I bought this book when my little boy was six months old. He's now 14 months and still loving this book. He whizzes through to his favourite page (the one with the prickly tail) before we can go back to look at any of the other pages!
My son adores the 'That's not my' range of books. He started collecting them when he was 12 weeks old and now at the age of 9 months, he is still captivated by them. Mummy can say 'that's not my' in her sleep, they have been read so many times!
I had really tried hard to find a book that my 15 month old daughter would enjoy and not get bored of half way through and struggle to get down and play. well i then found the usborne touchy-feely books (that's not my...) they are absolutly fantastic, my daughter loves them and i am now going to collect all of the series, these books are fun for both me and my daughter to read together but they are also teaching her new words and sensory awareness.
“Unlike other board books, there are swatches of different textures on each page designed to encourage your little one to explore and play independently.”
