“There once was a boy who lived close to the sea
And daydreamed all day about what he might be.
His island was lush and his life wasn’t bad,
But he wasn’t content with the things that he had.”

Despite his idyllic island life, young Bob yearns for a greater sense of purpose. He recognizes that his life doesn’t have direction, so he decides to set out on an adventure and seek out advice from the sea creatures.

Bob encounters a carefree dolphin Al, who teaches Bob to appreciate every minute he has available and directs him to the wise turtle Doc, who can help him find his purpose in life. Doc encourages Bob to find his passion, the things that excite him, and jump into those things.

What is my purpose? What will make me content?

In sparkling, rhyming text, Bob discovers his passion is to protect all life in the sea, and sets off on an adventure to pursue that passion.

Every child will love the gorgeous illustrations and inspiring story of Blue Ocean Bob, whose magical sea journeys with dolphins, turtles, and a special hummingbird will teach them to have a “can do attitude” and learn to look at every problem from a new direction until the solution is revealed.

This children’s picture book engages just one of the concepts – purpose - expounded on in the full Blue Ocean Bob chapter book series.

Readers of Blue Ocean Bob Discovers His Purpose “loved the rhyming couplets” and “think a few of us adults could stand to learn the lessons held within, too.” They praise the “delightful stories and the simple but profound principles they reveal” that “empower children to cultivate proactive attitudes, to value themselves and confidently tap into their inherent gifts for making their dreams come true.”
