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!

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!

Let’s open the book!

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 it’s parts!

Now we are finished We’ve come so far since the start

You should know all about

A book and it’s parts!
