Little fingers will love touching this book and laughing at all the things that show it is not an elephant! Ears that are too rough, a tail that is too tufty, toenails that are too bumpy. But what about the tusks? They are just right.


That's Not My Elephant by Fiona Watt

This is a lovely new edition of this popular title in the groundbreaking That's Not My... series. It combines bright, colourful illustrations with a variety of different textures to touch and feel, such as soft ears, bumpy feet and a tufty tail. It helps very young children develop important language and sensory skills. The series was awarded 'Best Buy' by the readers of Prima Baby magazine. It is an award-winning series shortlisted for the British Book Industry Stora Enso Award for Design and Production.
