Book Titles

Book Titles helps KS1 children learn how to pick a book of interest from the title. It also asks children to select relevant titles for a specific topic, showing awareness and comprehension on the connection between content and title. This will add to their expanding knowledge of literacy and the English language.

They say you should never judge a book by its cover…but it does help to judge a book by its title. The title of a book can tell you the subject matter, so what it’s about, who it's for and if it’s fact or fiction. See how much you remember about book titles.

  1. Which of these is not a good book title?
    The first answer is a sentence. Book titles tend to be short, so they can fit on the front cover and because they want to capture the reader's attention.
  2. Which book will help me learn about Science?
    Factual books will always have the topic in the title, so you know straight away what the book is about.
  3. How to Dance. What type of book do you think this is?
    Any books that start with 'How to...' will be factual and will aim to teach you something.
  4. Which book should I buy for my five-year-old cousin?
    Often by looking at the cover, we can see who the book is for - you don't often see adults reading picture books!
  5. The Boy and the Giraffe is the title of a book but who do you think the main characters of the story are?
    A book title sometimes tells you who the main character is, like Horrid Henry, Harry Potter, Winnie the Pooh etc.
  6. The Children's Picture Atlas will be about?
    An Atlas is a book of maps but this one is for children - it says so in the title!
  7. The Smelly Turnip is the name of my book but what do you think it's about?
    The title again has given us a clue. You can probably tell it's not a serious book as turnips don't smell, well not until you cook them.
  8. The Hungry Caterpillar is a book about what?
    The Hungry Caterpillar was first written in 1969, that's over forty years ago!
  9. Brush Your Teeth Burt! This is the title to a book but what do you think it's about?
    Sometimes the title tells you a little about what happens.
  10. What type of book would be a pop up book?
    There are some factual books that 'pop-up' but these types of books are normally story books written for children.
