Najah A. Jabbar
Najah A. Jabbar, an educator, has always been drawn to the possibilities of the imagination. She has a knack for making flat shapes come to life with sweet and quirky tales that inspire imaginations and encourage conversations about the link between art, geometry, and language. When she's not writing or teaching, she's enjoying the Denver life with her darling daughter, Aaya, the inspiration for the first of the From a Shape Lizzy book series, "From a Circle." After that, stories seemed to form their own shapes or vice versa, conveying experiences or lessons that children encounter in their daily lives.
