Your little one is much more coordinated and can really grab onto things these days and not just your hair! They’re excited to get into the books you’re sharing and are increasingly able to handle the pages of board books. They’re also likely starting to drool and chew on things as their new teeth break through. It’s absolutely fine that your dear one is chewing on books now. The comfort they get from chewing on pages will be associated with books and will be another reason to love reading time!
