picture book with front matter?

Discussion started on

Hi everyone, I need use front matter in my PB and am trying to find some examples. I remember reading a few books with front matter, not many, but I can't pull out their names from head right now.  Does anyone know PBs with informational front matter?

Thank you!

Hue, I've seen some PBs with front matter for parents, but I don't see it often for kids. Tammi Sauer's How to Care for your Lion has front matter. Before the story actually starts there are pages that show how excited a boy is to get a kitty and then pet delivery with instructions and the book proper starts after. Very fun.

Emergency Monster Squad by Dave Horowitz has a front matter in it about EMS workers and 911.
