Lucy in the City: A Story About Developing Spatial Thinking Skills

Written by Julie Dillemuth and PhD and Illustrated by Laura Wood

Lucy in the City is a picture book about a young raccoon who gets separated from her family one night and has to find her way home. Faced with the challenge of being on her own, Lucy tunes in to her surroundings for the first time and discovers that she can re-trace her steps using smells, sights, and sounds. At its heart, the story focuses on developing spatial thinking, understanding the world around us, and using concepts of space for problem-solving. Includes a 'Note to Parents and Caregivers."
