A palindrome is a word or phrase that reads the same forwards and backwards.  It could be as simple as a word like "mom" or "dad" or "radar."  It could be a name like "Hannah" or "Bob."  It could be a phrase or sentence like "race car" or "Step on no pets" or "Rise to vote, sir."

potatopan.gifThe library has a number of books about palindromes, including several by author Jon Agee.  His palindrome books include
So Many Dynamos; Go Hang a Salami! I'm a Lasagna Hog!; Sit on a Potato Pan, Otis!; and Jon Agee's Palindromania.  Mr. Agee illustrates the palindromes with humorous black and white cartoon sketches.  They can be very funny!
