Nonfiction books have three parts that fiction books do not. They have a table of contents, an index, and often, a glossary. Table of Contents The table of contents is in the front of the book right after the title and copyright page. It lists the names of all the chapters, or sections, in the book. Each chapter name is followed by the page number on which the chapter begins. Use a table of contents: when you want to see what the broad ideas are in a book when you know the chapter you want and want to know the page it starts on Glossary A glossary is a miniature dictionary that appears near the end of the book before the index. It gives a list of key terms and their definitions. The glossary includes only words specific to the book’s topic. What is an Invertebrate?............ 4 Simple Invertebrates ................10 Mollusks ................................16 Arthropods ............................22 arachnids eight-legged arthropods that eat other animals or their blood arthropods invertebrates with jointed legs and a hard outer structure called an exoskeleton bivalves mollusks with hinged shells budding reproducing by growing offspring on the parent’s outer body Index An index is found at the end of a book. It is an alphabetical list of all the ideas in the book. Each idea is followed by all the page numbers on which the idea appears. An index has small print and multiple columns. When you do research, the first thing you check in a book is its index to see if it has what you seek. An index is like a keyword search in a search engine. You look for your keywords in the index. aestivation, 17 herbivore, 9 sea anemone, 7 arachnid, 25 insects, 22, 25 sea nettle, 11 arthropod, 22-25 jellyfish, 5, 10-12 sponge, 10, 12-13 Excerpts from Housel, Debra J.
