Guys. GUYS! Are you ready to be mind-blown? I learned something last night, and this is so amazing to me that I had to blog about it.
If you’re familiar with the popular That’s not my series from Usborne Books & More, maybe this isn’t new information for YOU, but it was for ME. Many people learn about and fall in love with Usborne books when they are gifted a book at their baby shower, stumble across one at their local library, or even by attending a social selling event. I often hear customers say that their very first Usborne book was one of the 50 titles in the popular That’s not my series. The 50th title will be available very soon from Usborne Books & More, and in case you’ve not heard yet, it’s That’s not my unicorn. I’m so excited!!
Back to my original point: I have a secret to share with you, that maybe wasn’t a secret for you, but hold on to your seats, because I’m going to share it with you now.
Did you know that there is a little white mouse to find in this 12 page book (which includes the front and back of the book, as the story technically starts on the cover of each book)?
See? There he is!
You did? Okay! Good….me too! I knew that little guy was on the cover, back, and on the spread of the pages. Let’s take a look at some of the examples where this little mouse can be found in this particular series.
A few of the titles in the That’s not my series, and a new variation as well!
Bold colors and contrasting thick black lines are great for infants and toddlers. Different textures accompany the describing word to connect learning.
My toddler loves to find the mouse in these books! Here’s a fun surprise in the That’s not my fairy with mouse donning a pair of fairy wings and a magic wand too!
One of the perks of attending National Convention: brand new titles given to attendees at registration!
Do you see our friend, the little mouse in the peek-a-boo circle? This is great for small hands refining their fine motor skills!
Lift the page UP and you can now see how tall the giraffe is compared to the other animals. What a great introduction to size comparisons.
So, this is great? Right? That’s still not the insider intel I have as an Usborne Books & More Book Lady. The mind-blowing information is that the little mouse that shows up in this popular and well-loved series is the NARRATOR of the books! Take a look back at the images of the books posted above and you’ll have the “aha” moment that I did last night. Our friend, the little mouse is telling the story.
The next time you pick up one of the books in the That’s not my series, take a peek. Observe where the mouse is on the pages. Tuck away this piece of information, and if you have another aha moment or one of mind-blowing information in another Usborne or Kane Miller title, please share with me!
