Please let me know which books are good for toddlers to identify letters, numbers, shapes, animals, etc...

I’ve tried all types of books (touch and feel, mirror, grab and pull, ... More
At what age have you been able to read a book to your baby? I’ve been trying to read to my 7 month old before bed, and she just gets excited and grabs the book to bite it. I try to continue turning pages, but she’s persistent and it’s just not working as a wind down routine quite yet!
