The Lovereading comment:
Shortlisted for Baby Book Award, Early Year Awards 2009
Irresistible to inquisitive fingers, the strokeable features within each book in the ‘That’s not my...’ series help an owner to know more about an animal. In That’s Not My Frog, the frog’s tummy is too squashy, the feet are too silky, the tongue is too rough but frog’s throat is just right. A message from Peter Usborne, the founder of the 'That's not my...' series:2009 sees the 10th anniversary of the first 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
