rospack find turtlesim [rospack] Error: package 'turtlesim' not found

I am following a book where I came accross rospack find turtlesim. Now when run that it returns that the package wasn't found. But when I run the turtlesim node, it works just fine. Can anybody please explain why? My version of ROS is Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04. I am a complete noob.

Without knowing what book you are using or the exact procedure you are following, it's hard to say exactly what is happening, but if you have the ros-kinetic-turtlesim package installed then you have turtlesim.
