My child is still young and all she does is chew on the books. Is she even learning anything
A. Yes! Make sure you have age appropriate books that your child can use on her own. There are sturdy board books and even some "indestructible books" with tear-proof pages that can be chewed on and washed!
You can also sit and read together. Let her turn the pages. Point out words and pictures while you read. Use an expressive voice to make the book come to life. Reading and looking at books together is a literacy foundation that can begin when a child is very young. Story time is also a great bonding time for you and your child
