Whether you are considering what books you might like to have on your little one’s baby registry or you are shopping for a baby shower that you are going to attend, let me share with you my favorite books or book types for you to consider.
That’s Not My…
The That’s Not My… series are touch and feel books with a look and find image. The books have beautifully drawn illustrations on thick high gloss pages. Each page spread has a different sensory experience and a little mouse for your little one to look for. With over 30 different titles in this series, it is hard to pick just one. With all of the choices, you will definitely be able to find a couple that are perfect for your little one.
Wishing you could get a bunch of them? That’s Not My Zoo features That’s Not My Lion, Meerkat, Panda, Monkey and Elephant.
In the That’s Not My… series, there is a That’s Not My Height Chart and Book. While this book is not a touch and feel book. This features a laminated height chart and a book that is all about the heights of different animals.
That’s Not My Zebra’s Colors is a little different than the traditional That’s Not My… books. Instead of the traditional touch and feel books, this books is focused on colors. You can turn the pages to experience the Zebra wishing it wasn’t just black and white and walk through animals of different colors.
