The American Girl's Handy Book: Turn-of-the-Century Classic of Crafts and Activities

Written 125 years ago by Lina and Adelia Beard, co-founders of the Campfire Girls, this nostalgic yet timeless reprint of the 1887 guide for girls is full of late 19th-century activities, some of them surprisingly ambitious given the time period. While there's the typical doll-making, flower-preserving and gift-making pursuits, the book also gives lessons on weaving a rope hammock, constructing a lawn-tennis net, building a bookshelf and more using common household items. With the emphasis on what girls can do, parents, grandparents, teachers and camp counselors will find this book an enduring treasure for the girls in their lives. 496 pages.
