The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob – Into the Lead
by Brooks Olbrys
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.
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.
