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. It's a magical cornucopia of projects, devices, toys, gifts, dolls, recipes, decorations, perfumes, wax and clay modeling, oil and water-color painting and games, all with clear and practical directions for how to make and play them. Vintage Americana by the Beard sisters, two of the founders of Girl Scouting in the United States. A delightful gift from great-great-grandmother's house.
