The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob – Into the Lead

by Brooks Olbrys

Genre: Children’s

Synopsis:
What if children’s books could help teach our kids fundamental principles for life-long success? This is the question that author, attorney, business owner and father, Brooks Olbrys asked six years ago when he began writing The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob books for children. Inspired by his young son and encouraged by motivational author and speaker Bob Proctor, Olbrys created a series of colorful, rhyming books that introduces children to timeless achievement principles wrapped in an oceanic “hero’s journey.” Olbrys distilled the lessons in the books from the teachings of experts on personal achievement Bob Proctor, Earl Nightingale, Napoleon Hill, and Wallace Wattles, among others.

In the latest book in the series, The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob – Into the Lead, Blue Ocean Bob progresses from a job as an assistant marine biologist into a new leadership role on the island and learns valuable lessons about courage, creativity, decision-making, action and leadership. After an earthquake hits, Bob faces a series of new challenges on his quest to protect the surrounding sea and its creatures. As he does in the prior books, Bob turns to Doc the turtle, Wallace the walrus and Earl the clam for sage advice and guidance. But when his mentor, Mary Marine, is called away to a distant island, Bob puts his fears aside and steps into her shoes, ultimately recruiting an assistant of his own.
Distinguishing the series, Olbrys says, “Blue Ocean Bob books substitute worldly and aquatic challenges for evil forces or characters. Instead of facing villains or fighting battles, Bob must overcome his own fears, and the doubts of his companion Xena, each time he confronts a new challenge.”

review

Our family has been fortunate enough to have been able review all three books in this set. I have an eight year old boy and a six year old girl and they love Blue Ocean Bob. One of the things they like about him is how he never quits. He has struggles, feels defeated and then pushes on. They also love that he has such great animal friends that motivate him. One thing I will say about this book in the series is that I am noticing the words becoming more challenging for my son to read and understand. This is fine for me because it forces my son to ask me what a word means and learn comprehension but if you are a hands off sort of parent when it comes to reading it may get your kid feeling a little confused. Great chapter book, great illustrations to go along with it. Five kid  stars.
