Blue Ocean Bob, Into the Lead is the fourth Blue Ocean Bob book but you do not need to read the others to enjoy this one. This is a cute early chapter book that late primary and early junior would be able to read independently. The books take place on the tropical island on the sea of Kerchoo, where Bob and his boss Molly Marine help the animals and the environment. In this volume with the help of the head animals, Bob plugs and oil leak, saves a beached shark, rescues some dolphins and begins to train Mary`s niece Molly to help out. This is a book that will introduce and reinforce the concepts of working together, mentorship, friendship, helping the environment as well as showing some of the underworld life and ecology. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous with bright colours and lots of detail. The story is told in a rhyming way that flows easily and sounds lyrical. I read this book to my grandson, one chapter at a time and he really enjoyed it, especially looking at the pictures and discovering things in them. I recommend this book to families, schools and public libraries. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob: Into the Lead by Brooks Olbrys A good early reader to show children the ideals of helping their neighbors, and some of the problems that sea life have with human behavior. This is a good reader to help build fluidity and word recognition .
