If you've had even a bit of experience with the Hebrew language, chances are you know the word for book - סֵפֶר (SEH-fehr).
Now, in English, we add -let to a noun to make it small and cute. For example, we add -let to pig to make piglet. Likewise, we add -let to book to make booklet. Such "small and cute" nouns are called diminutives.
In Hebrew, we add וֹן (ohn) to the end of a noun to create a diminutive. In the case of ספר, we say סִפְרוֹן (seef-ROHN) for booklet.
