About the Author:
Jenny M. Iverstine is a native of Baton Rouge and now resides in Denver, Colorado with her family and red standard poodle, Bleu. While enjoying all the outdoor sports of the West, she also loves rollerblading, cooking all foods that go with rice and making paper-cut cards. Circles and Scissors is Jenny's first book to publish. She wrote and illustrated the book as well as designed the entire concept of Circles and Scissors Handwashing over a period of 4 years. After teaching the Circles and Scissors curriculum to over 20,000 students in the classroom and on-line, she created the Circles and Scissors book as a condensed version of the method for parents and teachers to use as an educational resource. Circles + Scissors is being taught in 32 states across the US and 5 countries. Jenny’s goal is one million pairs of clean hands!
