How do I count my pages on a self-ended children’s picture book? Unlike one with endpapers, you actually count every page inside the book. One is behind this page. It does not print. It glues down to the cover and that is page one. This is 2, this is 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, all the way to the end and you probably have 22, 23 and the last page, 24, is white. It does not print and it is glued down to the cover.
