That's Not My Tiger...
Author: Fiona Watt Illustrator: Rachel Wells
Small children will love touching the tiger’s fluffy ears, soft paws and bumpy teeth and will particularly like tracing his soft, stripy tail on the very last page.
A lovely book for sharing with the youngest of children - it will withstand the attention of inquisitive little hands and repeated re-reading.
After gaining a degree in Education at Exeter University, Fiona worked as a writer and researcher for a publishing company who produced booklets for zoos and museums, and then as a teacher in Kent and the Netherlands.
She joined Usborne Publishing as an assistant editor in 1989, and is now editorial director. Fiona has gone on to produce over 150 titles for Usborne and frequently features in charts of best-selling authors. Her books include the award-winning That's Not My... series, The Beginner's Cookbook series, and many fantastic activity and cloth books.
These books are perfect for entertaining toddlers and younger children that that love animals, with everything from hilariously silly stories to early learning tales.
There's a long history of tigers cropping up in children's books - and they don't only pop round for tea... Here are some of our favourite 'tiger' books for you to share with your little one, full of fantastic drawings of this iconic creature.

One of my daughters favourites. She loves to growl when she sees the tigers teeth. Teaches texture and word association ie rough/smooth etc.

Love turning the pages in this book. The textures are great to feel and the story easy to follow. Picture colours are a odd mixture of bright and pale colours. Really like it.

I always aim to get one of these books everytime we visit the library. My son has loved these books from the first one I got him when he was 6 months old. He loves interacting with the book, turning the pages, feeling the different textures on each page, naming the animals and getting mommy to do the noises to laugh at then join in.

My son loves looking at all of the different tigers and their textures. He also shows great delight when mummy points out the little mouse on each page and squeaks!

I read this book to my 10 months old she enjoyed the story and loved to feel the textures I think it's a very good idea to keep young children engaged and to encourage them to read or hear storybooks

This is a really nice book. My 2yr old got it as a present and loved reading through it. A nice way to teach little ones about various textures and their names!

My son has learnt his body parts with the help of this book at the age of 14 months.

My son loves this book. He is 14 months old and walking, so rarely sits still for a whole story or goes through the pages in the correct order. This book is great, as it doesn't matter if you read the pages in the wrong order and he loves feeling all the different textures, especially the bumpy teeth.

My daughter is 14 months old and learning to walk so she won't sit still long enough to read many books. She loves getting all our books off the shelf and carrying them around but the only ones she likes to listen to (more than the first page) are the That's Not My... books.
