Melissa commented on my 101 Chapter Books to Read or Hear Before You Grow Up post with a request. She described a book she read and loved as a child, and she asked for help with the title and author. I thought it was worth reposting because the story sounds interesting. I want to know the title and author, too!
Here’s her comment:
I canâ€™t remember the title or author, and I remember reading it in elementary school â€“ roughly 1980 â€“ 82. It begins with a girl and her little brother in the botanical gardens/zoo looking at the flowers on a very hot summer day. They are bored and looking for a place to cool off. The brother picks one of the flowers and they are chased out of the gardens by the groundskeeper. They end up in the museum because itâ€™s cool there and find an exhibit of an old log cabin. Itâ€™s behind glass so they canâ€™t touch anything. The girl gets a headache from the smell of the flower in the close space and crushes the flower against the glass. Suddenly the glass disappears and theyâ€™ve traveled back in time to pilgrim times and they have these great adventures.
Comment below if you can help with the title (or part of the title?) or the author.
