Is it a “Magic Page”?

From the Chalkboard: Back to School Edition:

IOBA received this query from a school librarian in Maine:

“Many teachers call the page in the book that matches the cover image the ‘magic page’.

“Is there a correct term for this?”

Can anyone help? As an example, see Maud and Miska Petersham’s 1947 The Story Book of Ships, where the Viking ship used on the cover appears on what would be page 11 of the unpaginated 28 page picture book.
