That’s Not my… Written by Fiona Watt and Illustrated by Rachel Wells
First Line: That’s not my … (with 40 subjects to choose from!)
First Published: 1999
A simple idea that works perfectly. A touchy-feely book that opens with reasons why it’s not your toy/animal via patches of different textures and then reveals at the end why it really is.
Great easy reading, bright pictures and sensory awareness that keeps even an active toddler interested until the end. A nursery classic – I’d be surprised if every mama didn’t have at least one of these books lurking around the house.
From £5.99 Usborne Books
