There are over 50 books in this easy-to-read book series
That's Not My Unicorn
Fiona Watt and Rachel Wells


If you have young kids you have to give this series a try. The "That's Not My…" series has been around for a while now. These touch-feely books are colourful, imaginative and easy to read. The concept behind the books are simple, each one has a theme, and a repetitive text.

My daughter has a couple of these. Her favourite is the monkey book. It opens up with "That's not my monkey" and then on the next page it will have a statement like "Its tail is too fluffy" or "Its nose is too black" and there will be a panel where there will be some fur or some leather kids will be able to touch.

That's Not My Monkey

The book will continue in this back and forth fashion until you will finally get to the page where it will be your monkey and there will be a statement like "Its eyebrows are really white!" and you will be able to stroke its eyebrows.

The "That's Not My…" book series has sold 20 million copies worldwide and has won numerous awards. They even come in gift sets which come with a stuffed animal. Usborne Children's Books recently released the 50th title in the series, a sparkly magical book called "That's Not My Unicorn".

You can find these books in most bookstores. The thing I like about these books is how much fun they are to read to kids. The text is simple enough for them to follow, the illustrations are adorable and kids love the touchy-feel pages. They're the perfect book to read at bedtime.
