100% normal. Until 3rd grade reversing letters is par for the course. If she is writing that much at 4 you have nothing to worry about.
Think about it... every other object she's ever learned has the same name no matter which direction it's facing or what angle you at it from. Suddenly b and dare two completely different things because they face different directions even though they have the same shape.

I was a teacher of 4 and 5 yr olds for 13 years and the best accomplishment that I made is helping the children learn to write. Some did write backwards and yes it could be a sign of dyslexia but it is to early to tell, so I wouldn't worry about it. When she gets in school if the teachers are concerned with it then they will let you know.
