Growing Up Mabel by Heather Payer-Smith

Mabel CoverGrowing up is the last thing on Mabel’s mind. It’s summer time and once daily chores are out of the way, Mabel cares only about what trouble she can get into next. That is, until Mabel and her best friend, Anna, stumble upon the new neighbor boy, Robbie Nelson. After Mabel experiences her first kiss, a world of questions haunt her. Anna tells her that kissing boys means she going to have babies (and lots of them)! Terrified of the possibility, Mabel is determined to learn exactly where babies come from.

Join Mabel through the summer that takes her from being a mischievous little girl, to a young lady as she learns about life’s responsibilities and what it means to grow up.

“Growing Up Mabel” is a humorous, coming-of-age book for young girls.  The story, set in the mid-west region, takes place over the summer of 1954, a time when issues young girls come to face (like boys and getting their periods) were touchy subjects that were not often discussed openly.  This book offers a humorous glance at life in the 50’s for a poor, but adventurous, farm girl during a pivotal point in her life as she transitions from a mischievous little girl into a responsible young lady.

“Growing Up Mabel” offers mothers, sisters and teachers a fun way to open discussion about those oh-so-awkward moments every young girl must go through.
