What if children’s books could help teach our kids fundamental principles for life-long success?  This is the question that author, attorney, business owner and father, Brooks Olbrys asked over six years ago when he began writing The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob books for children.  Inspired by his young son and encouraged by author and speaker Bob Proctor, Olbrys created a series of colorful, rhyming books that introduces children to timeless achievement principles wrapped in an oceanic “hero’s journey.”  Olbrys distilled the lessons in the books from the teachings of experts on personal achievement including Bob Proctor, Earl Nightingale, Napoleon Hill, and Wallace Wattles.

The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob-Into The Lead (book #3 in trilogy)

In the latest book in the series, The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob – Into the Lead, Blue Ocean Bob progresses from a job as an assistant marine biologist into a new leadership role on the island and learns valuable lessons about courage, creativity, decision-making, action and leadership.  After an earthquake hits, Bob faces a series of new challenges on his quest to protect the surrounding sea and its creatures and turns to Doc the turtle, Wallace the walrus and Earl the clam, for sage advice and guidance.  But when his mentor, Mary Marine, is called away to a distant island, Bob puts his fears aside and steps into Mary’s shoes. 

Distinguishing the series, Olbrys says, “Blue Ocean Bob books substitute worldly and aquatic challenges for evil forces or characters.  Instead of facing villains or fighting battles, Bob must overcome his own fears, and the doubts of his hummingbird companion Xena, each time he confronts a new challenge.”

Fun and impactful, The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob – Into the Lead and the entire series offer:
∗   Access to fundamental achievement principles for children ages 6 to 10
∗   Engaging rhyme and colorful illustrations for the whole family to enjoy
∗   Stories that foster an appreciation for the ocean and marine life
∗   Power through a positive mindset, creative thinking and good decision-making
∗   And much more!

The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob – A Journey Begins was the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Award Winner for Juvenile Fiction and a 2013 Foreword Reviews’ Book of the Year INDIEFAB Finalist.  The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob – A Challenging Job is a 2015 Foreword Reviews’ Book of the Year INDIEFAB Finalist and a 2016 Next Generation Indie Book Award Finalist for Best Overall Design – Fiction.

This amazing cover of Trap Queen by George ThePoet reminded me of a New York Public Library event on the subject of context and centered, in part, on Decoded, a semi-autobiographical book written by Jay-Z.  Decoded  analyzes Jigga’s rap catalog using a careful and concerted examination of the lyrics in tandem with a collection of  resource materials, including his literal interpretation/explanation, anecdotes, refection, and autobiographical information, through the lens of context.  Jay-Z laid out his case for us to define hip-hop and rap lyrics as the poetry of his generation and ghet poetry must be looked at through a contextual looking glass in order to understand and appreciate the story.

Context is most important and powerful tool of language. George ThePoet puts us on notice in this cover of Trap Queen.
