Building on the premise that all creatures have unique and special qualities, the "That’s not my …" series gives toddlers the chance to identify all those special characteristics. With a range of different textures to stroke and prod, this interactive book encourages sensory and language skills as toddlers use their discretion to dismiss a number of "pretenders" before identifying their own special character with the triumphant finale.
The large pictures and repetitive words are great for small children to feel confident about books. The feely section of each page is a real bonus too.
