Despite his idyllic island life, young Bob yearns for a greater sense of purpose. Accompanied by his friend Xena, an overly cautious hummingbird, he sets out to ask the happy sea creatures to share their wisdom with him. His quest leads him first to Al, a playful and spirited dolphin, and then to the local sage, an old turtle named Doc, who finally helps Bob realize that by following his bliss, he will find true fulfillment. Thus begins Brooks Olbrys heart-warming and colorful new picture book series, The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob, inspired by the success philosophies of Bob Proctor, Napoleon Hill, Earl Nightingale and others. Readers will thrill to Bob s maritime adventures while learning valuable life lessons from this endearing new hero as he discovers his true purpose - to protect the sea, and all life within it.
This is an excellent book! It teaches character traits which I have seen in fewer new book publications as the years progress. Bob is living an idealic life when he realizes that he needs a purpose in his life.....one that will effect otheres. In his quest to determine what that purpose is, he goes to others who are older and wiser than he is. I think this book is great for helping to make it fun for kids to learn how to find answers to questions that may be bothering them...and inspiring in that some kids may simply want the idealic life until they read a book like this and realize they can help others. Kids who find a purpose in life have a much better self-esteem and a higher opinion of themselves...and others. The illustrations are detailed and colorful! I give this book a 5/5. Find a copy for your child or you classroom!
