The book is laid out by the seasons, making it easy to find ideas and projects desired. It also covers many of the major holidays of the year, the origins and history and what a young lady can do to have parties, decorate with hand made items, and entertain her friends for any occasion.
Also provided are lessons on how to express herself in various art mediums such as painting, casting, scrap-booking and one of the most unusual lessons that surprised me, heraldry.
The ideas and projects found within can and I believe should be used by parents as an excellent way to spent time with their daughters and ways to keep their children active through out the year. One chapter even provides instruction for a home gymnasium to keep fit. For adults wanting to provide gifts and special items for their daughters can learn to make many things such as corn husk and flower dolls that have brought delight and hours of enjoyment since their first creation by the hands of the American Indians.
Overall I think this is a must have book for the education of any girl that will benefit her for the rest of her life.
This book and it's companion, The American Boys Handy Book should grace the bookshelves of every home with children and a spare copy on hand for it will be worn out from much use.

This book was a real disappointment....unless I wanted my daughter to become a fortune teller and host pagan festivals, then it would be a winner.Published on January 8, 2014 by Ken Gray
