As a mom with a growing "That's not my..." collection it's good to know what the touchy-feely parts are. The monkey book has: soft ears, velvety tail, smooth feet, hairy eyebrows, fuzzy tongue and fluffy tummy. There's a nice variety of illustrations and it's another great book in the series.

Engaging and sturdy, compared to other touch-and-feel board books my toddler has destroyed. There are no little pieces to pull off, the touchy-parts are embedded in the pages.

My son LOVES this line of books; but this one fell short for him!
"That's Not My Monster" is his absolute favorite, and he likes "That's Not My Dragon" the 2nd. I bought That's Not My Pony, That's Not My Monkey and That's Not My Lion recently. He enjoys the monkey one, but the other 2 he doesn't care much for. I couldn't say why, I think textures are really the same book to book, so it must be the pictures. I highly recommend these books though.

I purchased this book as a gift after someone had given my daughter the "That's Not My Dragon" version. It was absolutely one of her favorite books as a baby and as a toddler she loves to read it over and over. Every page has a touch and feel piece to it. It's neat to watch your child progress and understand where the touch & feel piece is on the page and gravitate to them on their own. There's also a cute little mouse tucked away on each page and although she doesn't get it yet, as she gets older I think this will bring a new element of "where's the mouse" in addition to the touch and feel part. These books are great-kids love them and they make nice gifts.

We have several of these books, my baby girls loves to touch and feel each sections. These are great first books to read to your baby. The monkey one is cute and one of our favorite ones.

Hi,

This is a great starter picture book. It can be expanded with your imagination! It is also a book containing different textures. As such, certain items have different textures like the monkeys ears are made of felt.

I suggest you read "The Read Out Loud Handbook";

Take care,
Rob G

I hope to collect all (or mostly all) of these books.
They are wonderful. Very cute drawings, short and sweet.
My son received Monkey and Elephant for Christmas when he was 10 months old.
He is a year old now and is still enjoying them.
I ordered Monkey and Princess one for baby shower gifts.

My son is 10 months old now, and "That's not my monkey..." has been one of his favorite books. We read it every night - he loves the "touchy feely" patches; this book is very sturdy. My son scrapes and picks at all the patches, and so far the book has shown no wear. Highly recommended!
