Very young children will delight in meeting the soft and furry reindeer in this colourful touchy-feely book. With simple, repetitive text on every page, children will enjoy joining in and exploring the textures, including a fuzzy neck, velvety ears and a hairy tail. A fantastic first Christmas present that will help very young children develop language and sensory skills.
“Furry, fluffy, shiny, fuzzy, a sensational new seasonal That's not my... story.”

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.
