About the Book

"'I do wish someone would write a book like that for girls, ' is the remark we have frequently heard when a new book of sports for boys has made its appearance." So Lina and Adelia B. Beard begin their book, The American Girls Handy Book. From preserving flowers to making Hammocks to painting, this book covers a plethora of fun activities for children of all ages. Written originally as the companion to The American Boys Handy Book, this book contains new activities, crafts, and games not described in the other volume.
About the Author: Daniel Beard, a founding member of the Boy Scouts of America, firmly believed in letting boys make their own playthings with their hands, to encourage them to value their own work and gain skills needed to successfully invent, construct and dream. This is truer today than ever before--in a world of video games and cell phones. Welcome the joys of childhood back into your children's lives with The American Boy's Handy Book, and help them discover hobbies, games and activities that will stimulate their imagination and create a sense of adventure in the real world around us. Lina Beard and Adelia B. Beard were sisters of Daniel Carter Beard (1850 - 1941) who was the first National Commissioner and Chairman of the Court of Honor in the Boy Scouts of America. The siblings were co-founders of the Campfire Girls.
