What do we have here?
Hey! It’s a BOOK!
It has many PARTS
So let’s take a look!

Let’s pick up the book
And what do you see?
It’s the front COVER and
it’s staring right at me!

And there are some words
Sometimes near the top
It’s the TITLE of the BOOK!
Keep going, don’t stop!

There’s a name on the cover
Just look with your eyes
It’s the AUTHOR and they
wrote all the words inside!

If there’s another name
Now who could that be?
Maybe the ILLUSTRATOR
They made the pictures for you to see!

You will know it’s
The title page when
You see the book title and
The author’s name again

Some small words over here
Don’t be afraid
Find the PUBLISHER
And the YEAR it was made!

Some books even have
A TABLE OF CONTENTS
With CHAPTER TITLES and NUMBERS
To help you make sense…

Of where to find what you want
And so it doesn’t take ages
The PAGE NUMBERS count up
And are on all the pages!

What about the words?
We will get to that next
The big ones are CHAPTER TITLES
And the rest is called TEXT!

Some call theses PICTURES
But there are many kinds
Like ILLUSTRATIONS, and DIAGRAMS
Or CHARTS filled with lines!

We are almost done now
Thanks for your time,
Don’t forget the BACK COVER
And the side called the SPINE!

Now we are finished
We’ve come so far since the start
You should know all about
A BOOK and its PARTS!
