I am not really sure what do you mean by printing the value, but you can access the iframe document object using this code
var page2_doc = "";
function assign_page2(){
     page2_doc = document.getElementById('page2').contentWindow.document;
<body onload="assign_page2();">
<iframe id="page2" name="page2" src="page2.html"></iframe>

you can access any object in the page 2 using the page2_doc

P.S. Both pages must be in the same domain
