4 year old daughter puts Everything in her mouth!

Is this really normal? DD is almost 4 1/2. She will put paper in her mouth and use it as gum. Lately, she has taken to putting her fingers in her mouth, although this may be from watching the 2 year old suck his thumb? She also has always had a thing for putting toys/books up to or in her mouth!
Sometimes, I don't think she even knows she is doing it, it seems like such a habit. I have talked to her about it not being good and germs and so on, but nothing seems to be getting through.
What have you done that has helped?

She is probably getting her 4 year molars It's temporary. My 3 yo is putting everything in her mouth too and it's driving me nuts.

This is a constant problem. She has been doing this forever.
