My daughters, 4 &7 both enjoyed it.
Eric John
We have triplet great nieces so thought these books would be fun for them - even though they are dark haired and dark skinned.
Carolyn K. Pollock
Also, the story has a nice lesson about helping others.

Format: Paperback
Possibly the best children's story I have ever seen about charity.
Flicka, Ricka and Dicka's mother is ready for canning, but does not know what fruit to use. The girls decide they should pick strawberries. Their mother tells them it is a good idea and will pay them for each basket they fill.
The girls go out the next morning but the quest for strawberries takes them far from home. Tired and thirsty they try to return home and discover they are lost. They find a cottage and ask for help. There they meet a very friendly and helpful family (mother, daughter and baby boy). The girls notice that while everything is clean, all the clothes are patched. The girl helps them get home after they have had a drink of water (sometimes there is not enough milk for the baby).
When the girls are paid for their work, they decide that they really have all they need and decide to spend their coins on the helpful family. Canned strawberries, a dress for the girl and a teddy bear for the boy are bought and taken to the family.
Each pair of pages has the story on one side and a painted illustration by the author on the other. Check out all of the Flicka, Ricka, Dicka books. Fans of this one may want to check out Snipp, Snapp, Snurr and the Yellow Sled.

I have fond memories of reading this book on the floor of the public library. "The Strawberries" was my favorite, but all the Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka books are cute picture books for young children.

I searched for these books for years after reading them as a little girl during the 70's. What a joy it has been to re-read them with my own girls. This particular book is the favorite in the series of my older daughter.
The Sweedish triplets demonstrate ingenuity, compassion, independence, and an adventuresome spirit.

Do not buy this book for your kids, unless you live in an Amish community or somewhere where you know and trust absolutely everyone. The girls befriend an elderly single man and it's quite quaint and nice if it weren't for the horrible reality of our world today. The girls are rewarded and rejoice in befriending a strange man, alone, with no adults present. It is sweet and naive story, a dangerous lesson in our times.

I love Flicka, Ricka, Dicka and so do my kids, but this one is a disappointment. The girls meet an older man, and on their own, with their mother unaware of their whereabouts, they go in his house and spend time with him. I'm sure this was very innocent at the time it was written, but it doesn't hold up well for modern audiences. I don't want my kids to think it's ok for them to go in a stranger's house without my knowledge. After buying it, I decided not to give it to my kids.

I loved this series as a child and my five year old really loves them too. We read them over and over. Great messages for children on kindness and compassion too.

My 4-year-old loves this story! I am asked to read "the strawberry book" repeatedly.

This is a refreshingly good-natured story.

These vintage books about three identical girls have just about charmed the socks off of me and my four-year-old. These girls are helpful and hard-working, and I feel good about reading them to my children.
