Dive Deep with Blue Ocean Bob as He Takes the Lead Protecting All Life in the Sea of Kerchoo
An earthquake has set off an oil spill on the ocean floor, and Blue Ocean Bob faces his toughest challenge yet. After seeking advice from the local sage, Doc the turtle, Bob musters the courage to dive down and repair the damage alongside his mentor, Mary Marine. Upon their return, Wallace the walrus alerts Bob that a great white shark has been beached. Calling on his island friends, Bob devises a creative plan to set the shark free.

But when Mary is called away to a distant island, Bob has to put his fears (and those of his hummingbird guardian, Xena) aside and step into his mentor’s shoes. Some unlikely allies help Bob in his new role, but he soon realizes that he needs even more help. Thanks to a tip from his trusted friend, Earl the clam, Bob finds the perfect candidate in a young girl he meets on the shore.
The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob: Into the Lead is the third installment in this colorful and inspiring early chapter book series that provides young readers with an introduction to timeless principles of achievement.

We received this book to give an honest review.
               I love these books and this story is no different. The pictures are done so well and are so colorful they go great with what is being told to us. In this book we get a great lesson through rhyming. You see Bob has a mentor named Mary who along with the other marine life help Bob with accidents that happen. So when Mary gets called away Bob is worried he won't be able to do a good job. He steps up to the plate though and tries his best but soon learns that he will need help and he needs to mentor someone to take on his previous role. It seems that we may get a new character in The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob. 
K really liked the story and though it was cool to have sharks helping out Bob and the dolphins. The chapters are short and I think it makes for a good book for those maybe in 1st grade to start reading.
