Yoshi’s Big Swim

Discover an amazing story celebrating teamwork, science, and an animal hero who swam more than 22,000 miles to her true home – the longest journey of any animal ever tracked. In addition to being awe-inspiring, Yoshi’s story underlines the importance of wildlife conservation and the power of one animal to unite people around the world for a common cause.

“The narrative personifies the tenacious turtle, emphasizing through a refrain (“and she crept into their hearts”) Yoshi’s impact on her human caretakers and admirers. On the fifth anniversary of her ocean release, the animated account will also endear her to young readers.” —Publishers Weekly
