Spanish I never learned

Como se dice:
Are these bite marks in your guided reading book?

Did you bite your guided reading book?

Books are for reading, not for biting.

Did it taste good?

It makes sense that one would bite a book. There are tiny teeth marks on one of my copies of "Night Before Christmas". I remember sucking on that book because I loved it so much. I was about 2 or 3.

Books are pretty magical. They excite our senses but not directly. This can be disturbing. They don't look like a meadow, but they describe it. They don't smell like a truck, but they evoke that too.

I completely agree! This was the first book the kiddo had read by herself and it makes perfect sense she would have dived in with all senses! Thanks for the comment.
