One night, Lucy the raccoon follows her family out of their den, headed for the best garbage bins in town. Distracted by a jar of peanut butter, she gets separated from her family. How will she ever find her way back to her family and her cozy den?

With the help of a friendly owl and his bird's-eye view, Lucy tunes into the world around her and navigates herself home!

Reading this book with your children will help them develop their own spatial thinking skills - how we think about and understand the world around us and use concepts of space for problem solving. Early exposure to spatial concepts can help foster this type of cognitive development in children and boost their math and science learning as they progress through school.

Includes a Note to Parents, Caregivers, and Professionals with more information about spatial concepts, as well as questions, games, and activities designed to encourage children's spatial thinking skills.

About the Author:

Julie Dillemuth, PhD, is a spatial cognition geographer and children's writer. She is passionate about writing picture books for children that help develop spatial thinking skills. Her stories have appeared in Highlights for Children and Odyssey magazines.

About the Illustrator:

Laura Wood's work can be found in picture books and magazines. By day, she likes to go in her studio to draw animals and little people. By night, she likes to put her dancing shoes on and lindy hop under the stars. There are three different places on this planet she calls home: Bristol, UK; Melbourne, Australia; and Treviglio, Italy.
