About Melissa Gilstrap
Melissa Gilstrap is a genetic counselor at a hospital and mom to her own Bubby (Noah) and Didi (Lydia). She was inspired to write this book because of the adventures she had with her brother growing up and the adventures she watches her own children go on each day. With everything going on in the world and all the screen time kids currently have with remote or virtual school, Melissa was excited to release this book to inspire creative playtime away from screens. She lives in Colorado with her children, husband, and miniature schnauzer, Charlie.
Bubby and Didi are not just brother and sister. They’re best friends, too! Together, they use an “Adventure Box,” filled with odds and ends to help them go on adventures throughout the day——with their dog, Charlie, of course.
One moment, Bubby and Didi are superheroes stopping the bad guy. The next moment, they’re chefs whipping up tasty treats for their biggest fan: Charlie. Their Adventure Box lets them travel to far-off places in their imaginations, like the jungle and even space.
At the end of the day, it’s time to rest, but Bubby and Didi aren’t finished having fun yet. Now, it’s time to read books, and those books give them ideas for tomorrow’s playtime!
