Practical Pre-School Silver Award 2009
The award is decided by Practical Pre-School product testers, who said of "That's not my puppy": "This book had immediate appeal for all the children. It is great for a wide age range as the babies enjoy the pictures and textures and the older children enjoy reading the words themselves and developing their vocabulary. It was also good for raising awareness of differences and similarities. It retained appeal for the children throughout the testing period."

That's not my...
My 11 month old son absolutely loves the "That's not my..." book series. As well as being great fun, they are practical and durable. It's great to watch him pick out his favourite pages and ask for them to be read over and over. He's obviously learning so much from them. Well done on a wonderful idea!
