First, ask your kids if they know what an index is in a book. Hand them a book and then ask them to point at the index. An index is a list of words with page numbers. Every writer knows that a book or a collection of works must have an index. A book index helps readers know where to find chapters or information they are looking for in a book. Look at the index in this worksheet with your kids, read the questions below the picture, and circle the correct number.
