Initial thoughts:
Kai has been a huge fan of the ‘That’s Not My…’ books since he was just a few months old so we were delighted to receive two of the Christmas editions of these books: ‘That’s Not My Santa’ and ‘That’s Not My Reindeer’.

It’s the usual winning format: thick, chunky board books with a ‘touchy-feely’ area on each page. The colours are bright and bold and instantly grab Kai’s attention.

We liked: These toddler-proof books are perfect for Kai and designed to withstand some bashing – other books we have from the series are still going strong after months of use. Kai loved exploring the different textures in each page and the simple, repetitive story. As is the usual, each page hides a little white mouse somewhere in the picture and Kai loves looking for it and spotting it.

The Christmas themes for these two particular books are lovely – Kai may not have much of an understanding of what Christmas is yet but it made ME feel Christmasy to sit and read them to him! The Santa book seemed to be his favourite and features a wider variety of textures.

We weren’t keen: I guess if you were being picky you could say that, being Christmas themed, you’re only going to get a couple of weeks use out of these before you need to pack them away again and chances are your little one might have out-grown them by next year. But who’s to say you only need to read them at Christmas? One of Kai’s favourite books is an Easter story and we read that all year round!

Overall: You can’t go wrong with this series and these Christmas titles are no exception. A perfect toddler stocking filler, or as an introduction to books for a younger baby’s first Christmas.
