One of three Usborne winners, That's not my Lamb received the gold award in the TheLovedbyparents Awards 2013. The awards recognise products, brands and businesses that parents truly love. Parent testers and their little ones were tasked with testing hundreds of entries from all over the world, and winning entries were decided by the public.
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.”
“If springtime puts you in the mood for some fun on the farm, you will love That’s Not My Lamb. There is a lamb on every page but none of them is quite right (too fluffy, too woolly) until the very last page.”
