Swim Along With Astro....

 Astro is a stellar Steller sea lion! When only a few days old, Astro is found orphaned on an island off the coast of California. The Marine Mammal center in Sausalito, California helps raise and care for him while he grows up. When big enough, his friends at the Marine Mammal Care Center attempt to release him back into the wild where he needs to be, but Astro has other plans. Just like a lost dog finding his way home, Astro keeps swimming back towards the Center, crossing miles of open ocean water to do so. After several attempts, people realize that Astro is too accustomed to humans and will just keep coming back. Based on real events, this children's book will take readers on an exciting journey through some of Asttro's travels that have now taken him across the U.S. to his current home at the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. This is an amazing an educational story! We received this book from our friends at Sylvan Dell Publishing and my 8 year-old son loved it! It is great for ages 4-9.
