Here of the parts of a book. Every book has a spine and a gutter. The spine is what holds the pages and the book together. The gutter is where the pages are attached (either sewn or glued). Books have a front cover and a back cover. The front cover has the title, the author and illustrator, and sometimes an illustration. The back cover can be blank, or it may have a summary of what the book is about. Writing and illustrations are very important parts of a book because without them you wouldn't have a book!
