Read with Mummy - review 'Thats not my dinosaur...'

That's not my dinosaur ... by Fiona Watt and Rachel Wells- Usborne touchy feely books


When my son was a baby (he's now two) we discovered these touchy feely books in the library. They became a firm favourite with him as he could touch and feel different parts of the picture, with a catchy story that I could read too. The general gist is that there are pictures of animals etc and they don't belong to the narrator, so you continue the story until you can find the correct one. Although a bit simple of a storyline for him now, he still loves the picture element of the books and now he can join in along with the text. 'His teeth are too bumpy.' For his little sister, the pages are bright and colourful and shes just beginning to pay attention to the pictures rather than trying to eat the book! I guide her hand to the textured parts and soon, like Elliot, she'll learn to do this for herself.

 A touchy-feely board book with simple, repetitive text, tactile patches and bold illustrations suitable for babies and toddlers. A little white mouse appears on every page, for children to spot.
That's not my dinosaur... is one of his favourites as hes a massive dinosaur fan! There are many other different stories to suit all tastes. The books are made very robust and withstand a lot of handling/touching/stroking etc. Great for learning different adjectives and textures in very easy to read sentences.
Elliot's verdict - he loves these books and now although he feels that they belong to the 'baby' he is still eager to read them! His favourite mouse to spot is the snorkeling mouse!
