Product Summary

If Tom Sawyer had been a girl, Aunt Polly would certainly have seen to it that she had a copy of this book - and with a heartfelt blessing. The American Girls Handy Book is a magical cornucopia of projects, devices, toys, gifts, dolls, recipes, decorations, perfumes, wax and clay modeling, oil and watercolor painting, and games, all with clear and practical directions for how to make and play them. This vintage slice of Americana was written by sisters Lina and Adelia Beard, two of the founders of the Girls Scouts of America. Softcover. 496 pages.
