There are eight wise owls for children to meet, and lots of new textures to touch and feel in this colourful board book. From tufty tummies to fuzzy wings and fluffy babies, young children will love to explore the touchy-feely patches on every page as they search for their owl. Specially designed to help develop sensory and language awareness in babies and toddlers. A joy to share together – don’t forget to spot the little white mouse on every page!

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.”

“My little granddaughter really enjoys this book. The pictures are so bright and clear and there are 'feely' bits on every page which she absolutely loves! The language is repetitive yet also introducing new words such as beak and wing.”
“My son loves the little mouse hiding on each page. Each page is very tactile. There is a tufty owl, an owl with rough wings and an owl with fuzzy wings to name but a few. A real favourite in this house.”
“We really enjoyed reading this book, it is, as always with this series, great for my sons sensory development and he enjoys seeing what is on the next page. Our favourite was the baby owls!”
