Craft and Activity Books are a subset of American Girl books and products that focus on creating (such as cooking or drawing) activity/puzzles, or other actions that are beyond reading the stories.
Since almost the start of the line, American Girl has offered craft and activity books and continue to do so. Activity books initially focused heavily on the Historical Characters; nowadays, books mostly focus on modern dolls or generic crafts and activities. These are aimed towards the older audience and often require some adult supervision.
