Let’s Talk
About Books!
For example, a COVER protects a
book and delivers important
information to you, the reader.
Like the
TITLE of the
book.
Like the
TITLE of the
book.
And the name
of the
AUTHOR and
ILLUSTRATOR.
You know that a book’s SPINE is
also important because it holds the
book together.
And it gives you, the reader, important
information!
Like the TITLE of the book!
The name of the AUTHOR!
And if it’s a library book, the SPINE will
also display the book’s CALL NUMBER!
A CALL NUMBER is the address of the
book. It tells you exactly where the
book lives on the shelf!
Just like your address tells someone
exactly where you live on your street.
=
235
Knowing how to read a book’s CALL
NUMBER is important because FICTION
BOOKS and NON-FICTION BOOKS have
different kinds of ...
And FICTION BOOKS and NON-FICTION
BOOKS live in different parts of our library!
