I always groan anymore when my daughter pulls something like this out. As a child, I loved to do projects from books like this, and I still enjoy reading the historical sidebars. But assembling all the materials, and helping her do it (she's 6, so there's a bit of help involved) seems like such a Sisyphean task. Still, it's only really a few hours, and your child will enjoy the project a lot. And who doesn't want a paperweight with an ocean scene inside? You don't have to answer that. Bottom line - your kid will enjoy doing the crafts. And they might learn something about history too.
This book explains how to do crafts that girls like Samantha would have done at the turn of the century. Every group of three or four crafts is introduced with a history of what girls did and why to give them context. The crafts are carefully explained with step-by-step instructions.
