A palindrome is a word or phrase that reads the same forwards and backwards.Â It could be as simple as a word like "mom" or "dad" or "radar."Â It could be a name like "Hannah" or "Bob."Â Â It could be a phrase or sentenceÂ like "race car" or "Step on no pets" or "Rise to vote, sir."
The library has a number of books about palindromes, including several by author Jon Agee.Â His palindrome books include
So Many Dynamos; Go Hang aÂ Salami! I'm a Lasagna Hog!; Sit on a Potato Pan, Otis!; and Jon Agee's Palindromania.Â Mr. Agee illustrates the palindromes with humorous black and white cartoon sketches.Â They can be very funny!
