When you have a baby, odds are someone will give you an Usborne ‘That’s not my…‘ book. The person will most likely be a parent themselves and have a whole shelf of these little gems. The fact is that while the ‘That’s not my…‘ collection seems repetitive, far-fetched (That’s not my dinosaur/ mermaid/ polar bear) and even a little predictable, babies LOVE them. But do parents?
Author Kasey Edwards and her husband shared some jokes about the Usborne ‘That’s not my…’ series and she turned them into books – for parents. OMG! That’s Not My Husband and OMG! That’s Not My Child follow Usborne’s familiar format (right down to the mouse on every page) with a tongue-in-cheek stab at common issues some new mothers face, such as the inequality of housework and the embarrassment we can feel when our children behave like, well, children.
One brave dad has given a sneak-peek of OMG! That’s Not My Husband – check out the video clip below.
Buy them for second-time around mums (because they’ll appreciate the joke and likely have the full Usborne collection already). OMG! That’s Not My Husband and OMG! That’s Not My Child are available at Book Depository for $9.88 each. Book Depository deliver free to Australia.
And for those of you that have titles missing from your real-deal Usborne library, you can find them at Book Depository for $9.64.
