Chats with Young Adults on Growing Up

E. Margaret Clarkson –Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.
Misinformation and mystery respecting the things that are holy but have become the subject of much lusty conversation is one of the problems which besets the Christian community. In this little volume, which appears as a sequel to an earlier book entitled Susie’s Babies, Miss Clarkson attempts to discuss the important concept maturity and all its implications for the boy and girl who will soon enter the teens.
The frank discussion of maturity seems to grow out of a natural situation created by Sliver, a pet hamster, who prematurely gives birth to a litter of young and destroys some of the young. Miss Weston leads her class into a discussion of maturity and the results of immaturity as illustrated by the actions of this immature hamster.
