Blue Ocean Bob Discovers His Purpose


Reading has always been very important to us. Especially when it comes to Dexter we love to read him books. I often find him reading books by himself. So when I got the opportunity to review this book I was so excited!

Our experience with the book:

Dexter (two years old) got the package and got to open it. He loved the cover! He just stared at it for about two minutes and was telling me everything on it, then when he opened it he was even more excited to see all the colorful pictures. He loves the art work throughout the book.
I love that the story is easy to read and easy for him to follow. Sometimes when books are to rhyme-y they are hard for me to read a lot of. I never have been good at tongue twisters! But this book is really easy to read and I can definitely see how a young kid would be able to read it and enjoy it.  I also love that it has a good message for him. A lot of books are either fun to read or have a good message but this one has both.

I would defiantly recommend this book to other. I think it is a great book with an excellent message and easy to read. It is easy for small children to  follow along with and enjoy. I think the pictures really bring the story to life and keep my son interested. I love the message of the book, setting goals, and discovering yourself. I think it is a great book that people of all ages can learn from, especially young children! I know as my son gets older this will be a great book for him to learn all about setting goals from.

A little bit more about the book:

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.
