The Lovereading4Kids comment

Irresistible to inquisitive fingers, the strokeable features within each book in the ‘That’s not my...’ series help its owner get to know their pet or favourite toy. In That’s Not My Tractor, the tractor’s trailer is too rough, the funnel is too smooth but the shiny headlights are perfect.

A message from Peter Usborne, the founder of the 'That's not my...' series:

2009 sees the 10th anniversary of the publication of That's not my Puppy, the very first title in our flagship Touchy-feely series. Now a phenomenal success, this series is quite obviously adored by the very young.

If you’re looking for other great books for this age range then go to our Babies and Toddlers category.

Synopsis

That's Not My Tractor by Fiona Watt

The added opportunity to touch a variety of textures should appeal to the imagination of very young children as they explore the surfaces of a toy tractor in this bright and lively board book. The book is designed to develop children's sensory and language awareness.
