Book awareness and concepts of print are pre-reading skills that kids need to learn before they can learn how to read.
Use these Parts of a Book Poster & Worksheet to help your pre-readers learn about books.
Many kids learn the parts of a book naturally and automatically when you read aloud to them. They watch how you hold and handle it, read the title, and open the front cover.
It’s important for kids to also learn the names of the parts and what they do like the author writes the story and the illustrator draws the pictures.
What Are Concepts Of Print?
A child who has knows the concepts of print will have a basic understanding of how books and print work.
Concepts of Print can be broken down into two parts- book awareness and print awareness.

The poster is in both color and black and white, so you can decide if you want to use the colored one or have your kids color the black and white poster.
If you are going to hang the poster on a wall or bulletin board for your kids to reference, I would recommend laminating it. Next, print the worksheet and make one copy for every child.
How To Use The Parts of a Book Poster & Worksheet:
When teaching your kids all about the concepts of print, give them a book that they have never read.
Next, use sticky notes with the parts written on them and help your kids label the parts.
You can teach them all about each part too like the meaning of a title, what the author and illustrator do, and why there are a cover and spine.
As a teacher and mom, I think that it is also important to teach young children how to handle and care for a book.
To use the label a book worksheet, your kids will cut apart the words: author, illustrator, front cover, back cover, spine, and title.
Next, they will label it by gluing the parts in the correct spot. Your kids can then color the picture.
Use these Parts of a Book Poster & Worksheet to help you teach and your pre-readers learn about book awareness and concepts of print. After learning about the parts of a book, they will continue to learn and grow as a reader!
