Oh, gosh! I LOVED Flicka, Ricka and Dicka when I was little!!! Their names were so much fun, they had cute dresses, lived in a pretty countryside, got to wander around on their own and have little adventures... I am not sure if these are just now coming back into print or what but I discovered a few copies at a wonderful independent bookstore and couldn't help but snap this one up. Now, I don't think the storytelling part of the book is its strong point--nothing too original in the wording (thou...more

Recommended [return][return]A step back in time with this re-published book. The original title was first published in 1946 and they were re-released this past May.

I'm always reading lists of recommended books for young learners and recently I discovered the vintage series of Flick, Ricka, Dicka. Blessedly I have just recently started reading and reviewing books for Albert Whitman & Co and they are known for great vintage books and a currently released series includes Flick, Ricka, Dicka. My first read is Flicka, Ricka, Dicka and the Strawberries. Originally published in 1946 and recently published for 2013. These are a nice jacket-less hardcover books...more
I love these little stories! This delightful picture book series was done by the Sweedish author and illustrator Maj Lindman back in the 1940's. The strawberries book is my favorite. The girls pick wild strawberries, loose their way and find a family in need. After they get home and can the strawberries with their mother, they take money that they have earned and buy a dress and a toy for the family that helped them on their way home.

That's how all these little books are. Warm, wholesome stories...more
Love, love, love this book. We have to read more of these! My kids laughed at the girls' names, but I had to tell them that they were Swedish names. A great story about helping others. Charming.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I think that this book will help to teach children that no matter how young they are they can still help others that are less fortunate than themselves.
This is my favorite from the series. Mostly because Dad made an error in reading it, which had to be repeated every time. One was always crying and I wanted to smack her.
