My 8 month old son loves this book.
Zak
My husband and I also read this book to him several times in one sitting while he flips the pages on his own, and is eager to touch the next monster.

She likes the pictures, (they're quite colorful,) as well as the textures on the pages.

I got this book for my 15 month old son for Christmas who loves touchy-feely books. He absolutely loves 'That's Not My Monster', and will pick this book out himself to look through on his own. My husband and I also read this book to him several times in one sitting while he flips the pages on his own, and is eager to touch the next monster.

The monsters in this book are:
- eyebrows that are too hairy
- spikes that are too fuzzy
- paws that are too bumpy (my personal favorite)
- horns that are too rough
- ears that are fluffy

The touchy-feely material is a pretty good sized and where there are smaller sections of touch material, those pages do contain multiple little panels of the same material to touch on the monster, such as on the 'rough horns' monster--it has four little panels instead of two large panels of touch material. Overall I am generally pleased with this book. The illustrations are cute and very colorful, and while the story isn't very long, it's a nice addition to my son's growing library.

We have 4 other titles in this series and this is one of the favorites. I bought monsters hoping my child wouldn't become afraid of monsters under his bed--a mother can hope. Some of the texture areas are small, but all cute and all different.

My son is 5 months old. We have been reading him this book for about 2 months now- and he loves it! He will feel each page and will sit through the entire book. Great for textile exploration! Really cute!

Similar to the other books in this series, the pages are very vibrant with a variety of textures for our 10 month old son to enjoy (lick, scratch, pull, etc...) Although some textures do repeat themselves across the series, he can't seem to get enough. We take the books with us on trips and other friends' children (toddlers) love the books as well. We highly recommend owning at least one in the series (or like us, the whole set--spread the love and wear&tear!)

Format: Hardcover
We have quite a few of this series, and love them, but sometimes it seems like everything is hairy, fuzzy, or fluffy, and maybe a smooth or a soft patch. This book has a "bobbly" nose and "bumpy" paws and "rough" horns in addition to some "fuzzy" spikes, "hairy" eyebrows, and "fluffy" ears. This has been one of my 3.5 year old's favorites (and he still enjoys feeling the textures in it), and now my 1 year old is loving it, too.

I got this for my 8 month old son for Christmas as his first touchy-feely book. It's too cute! I'm gonna have to get another one from the line. Love it!

Overall, these books are great first books for babies. My daughter is 10 months old and loves them. (Her brother is a little over two years old and he likes them too.) The pages are easy for her to turn and she'll pull these books off the shelf and turn the pages all by herself. The illustrations are bright and hold her attention and she like to explore the textures. The books are well made for touch and feel style books and seem to be holding up well. There are six sentences per book. The cover is the beginning of the book and there are five additional two-page spreads. This book has a bobbly nose, hairy eyebrows, fuzzy spikes, bumpy paws, rough horns, and fluffy ears. Each of the six textures are really distinct from each other. The monsters are adorable. This is a great example of a book in this series.

I bought this book for my 8 month old grandson. On the one hand, its his favorite toy/book right now. On the other hand, he protests vigorously if you attempt to read the whole book with him and not just leave it open to his favorite fuzzy page.

Update: Four months after purchase its still the favorite, but its a shambles. Baby preferred that the book be disassembled so that he could carry his favorite page or pages around by themselves without the burden of having to carry the entire book. I suggested the possibility of replacing it, but the consensus is that he prefers it disassembled and would just do the same again. I'm going to get one or two others, but fully anticipate that they will meet the same fate.
