BOOK OVERVIEW
(from Amazon)

Embark on an oceanic quest with Blue Ocean Bob, as he goes in search of his true purpose…and makes many new friends along the way. Despite his idyllic island life, young Bob yearns for a greater sense of fulfillment. With his guardian, Xena the hummingbird, at his side, Bob sets out to seek guidance from the wise and happy creatures of the sea.
From the joyful secrets of Al the dolphin to the insightful advice of Doc the turtle, Earl the clam, and Wallace the walrus, Bob uncovers great wisdom. But to complete his journey, he'll need to overcome his fears and Xena's doubts and prove himself to Mary Marine, the Island of Roses's leading marine biologist.
The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob: A Journey Begins is the first episode of a colorful, early chapter book series that provides children with an introduction to timeless principles of achievement derived from the teachings of Bob Proctor, Earl Nightingale, Napoleon Hill, Wallace D. Wattles, and others.

REVIEW
These books about Blue Ocean Bob are not only fun and interesting for children but they have some very important lessons for children to learn early in life.  If they learn early, hopefully the lessons will follow them throughout life.  You want so much for  your children and you want them to do right and grow up to be caring loving individuals.  These kind of books re-enforce those lessons.   We don't have enough of that.  The author, Mr. Olbrys helps parents bring these lessons to life with these Blue Ocean Bob books and the travels on the sea to learning them. The books allow the children to use their imagination and use their minds.  They get to realize they can succeed in what they try to do.  It may not come at first, but keep trying and it will happen. The books are written in an easy to understand  way and are fun  The illustrations are very colorful and go with each page of the story.  The book is hard covered with a very nice colorful and interesting book sleeve to protect the book. These book are a nice addition to a child's book shelf to be read over and over again, re-enforcing the lessons.  You can succeed.  There is a future out there.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Brooks Olbrys, in exchange for my unbiased view. No other compensation took place.
 
I would give this book 5 STARS.
