Barbers help people take care of their hair. They wash, cut, perm, and color hair, and even shave whiskers. Barbers work in many different types of stores—some work alone with room for just a few customers and others work in big shops with many other barbers. Whether cutting long and straight hair or short and curly hair, barbers help make our community better!

Author: Alison Behnke

Born in Rochester, Minnesota, Alison Behnke had the good fortune to live in Rome, Italy, for three years while in grade school. Not only did this move expand her horizons enormously and introduce her to one of the world’s best and most beautiful cities, but it provided her with a wealth of writing material. Even before her Roman holiday, however, Alison knew that she wanted to be an author—a desire which, according to her parents, she first voiced around age six. Good teachers, avid reading, and a children's librarian for a mother all fed the fire. Alison went on to take a degree in English with a focus on Creative Writing, and at present count she has written more than thirty books. Alison lives in Minneapolis, and when she's neither reading nor writing, she spends her time on pursuits including photography, travel, and striving to make the perfect espresso.
