The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob - A Journey Begins 
Brooks Olbrys

Book Description:
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.

My Review:

Blue Ocean Bob has a great moral of continuing what you started, even when things look hopeless.

The book was a little long for my son to sit through in one sitting, enjoyed it.

The book's prose is beautiful and has a very interesting way of describing the characters and dilemmas.

My son and I really enjoyed reading this book.  I loved how intense Xena's feelings got
"What if you fail, Bob?
Just what if you blow it?
This ocean's much bigger than you, and you know it!"

But even with Xena's worrying, Bob still felt confident.  I love the teachings in this, and it was super great for my son, who has really bad anxiety.

The illustrations are amazingly beautiful and serene.  Makes me want to move to the Island of Roses!!  Kevin Keele did a wonderful job illustrating.

This book get's 

Disclosure:  I recieved a complimentary copy for my honest review.  I did receive further compensation for the post, but the opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not paid for a positive review.
