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."
Shortlisted - Richard and Judy Galaxy Children's Book of the Year 2008

"That's not my penguin..."
Ever since his Grandma bought this book, my 11 month old son has thoroughly enjoyed it! He knows exactly where all the touchy/feely bits are in the book. I thought I'd check your website to see if there were anymore to collect and thank goodness there are! Grandma will be pleased!
