When I was in 3rd grade (I think), we read a short story in our reader called “Hannah is a Palindrome.” I did a Google search for that story, and all I really found were blog or message board posts by others commenting that they too had read the story in elementary school.
I am not entirely sure why that story has stuck with me the way it has through the years. I just remember really liking it when we read it. I also remember a couple days after we read it, we had a substitute teacher. I’m pretty sure she went home in tears that day, and when our teacher returned she made us write a paper about what happened when the substitute was there. For some reason, I clearly remember describing the chaos in the classroom as being like we were living in the world of Hannah in “Hannah is a Palindrome.”
Funny the things that stick with a person. I can’t tell you what I ate two days ago, but I remember that paper vividly.
Ever since then, though, I’ve known what a palindrome is, and I’ve taken great pride in that knowledge.
