It looked like an ordinary root cellar--And if twelve-year-old Rose hadn't been so unhappy in her new home, where she'd been sent to live with unknown relatives, she probably would never have fled down the stairs to the root cellar in the first place. And if she hadn't, she never would have climbed up into another century, the world of the 1860s, and the chaos of Civil War...

I read The Root Cellar at age 10. I am 43 now and through my life I have remembered the name of this book as well as the author's name! I bought it for my little cousin years ago and now have it on hold to read with my 8 year old daughter. I am so excited to go back in history with my little girl and show her how The Root Cellar brought me joy.

This title was one of my all-time favourite childhood books. It was given to me by my Mom. I remember reading the blurb and thinking that it sounded kind of dull. History? Booooring! And then I started to read it and was proven completely and totally wrong. I loved it. I read it over and over again. I am happy (and relieved) to say that as an adult, I still loved it. I spent every available minute reading it this holiday weekend it and if I hadn't so many plans, I'm pretty sure that I would have finished it in less than a day. Another successful chapter in my Childhood Favourites Experiment!

This is a really great book. You can learn allot from it because it talks about real events in history. It is a really great read and I would recomend it to anyone who likes to learn from books but also likes a really good story.
