The front cover says it all "Complete, easy-to follow directios for craft ideas including weaving, sculpting, leatherwork, designing and creating with paper, scissors and paste, flower arranging, painting, experiments in astronomy, understanding geology and geography, ideas for the car and the sickroom."
