Julie Dillemuth

author & screenwriter

I'm an award-winning author with a PhD in geography. My spatial thinking picture books inspire kids to get outside, explore, draw and tell stories with maps. 

My picture book for toddlers, Loving Comfort, has sold over 30,000 copies and has been translated into Spanish, Italian, German, and French.

My feature screenplays and adaptations are emotionally resonant stories about women that inspire as much as they entertain.

spatial thinking books


Spatial thinking is how we understand the world around us and use concepts of space for problem solving. Kids who learn and practice spatial skills are well-equipped for everyday problem solving and math/science learning.

Whether it's with Lucy retracing her steps in the big city, Camilla finding a new cartographic adventure, or Flora telling stories by drawing maps, my books get readers practicing their own spatial thinking skills.

New Release


Mama's milk has always been a part of Jack's life. That's changing now that he's a toddler, and that's hard. But Mama's cuddling arms, lullaby voice, and thump-thump heartbeat won't change, even when the milk is gone.

This book is for toddlers and moms who are getting ready to start weaning, or are already in the process of weaning from breastfeeding. 

Available in English, Spanish, German, Italian, and French languages.
