Format: Paperback
Flicka, Ricka and Dicka, the three Swedish girls, are trying to decide what to get for their mother's birthday. Father says it should be something the make themselves. An Aunt suggests that they bake a cake and she has just the recipe.
The Girls shop for the ingredients, mix the cake, clean the kitchen and go out to play for a few minutes. But they play too long and the cake is burned. The girls must make another one. Once the cake is made and decorated, the girls and their father give the mother a memorable birthday.
Another fine book by Maj Lindman and it teaches the importance of paying attention when doing a job. Each pair of pages has the story on one side and a painted illustration on the other. Read all of the Flicka Ricka Dicka books (and check out Snipp Snapp and Snurr).

Format: Paperback
A simple story about a simple activity (baking a birthday cake for mother) that my children and their friends have enjoyed for several years. They repeatedly ask for me to read this book. The underlying messages in all the Flicka, Ricka and Dicka books (as well as the Snipp, Snapp, Snurr stories) encourage kindness to others and responsiblity. Not inspiring literature but a great book about somthing young children are interested in.

Flicka, Ricka, Dicka books have been republished. The classic Swedish stories from the 1930s bring wonderful tales of three Swedish sisters and their adventures together. Charming and always have a sweet lesson. Classic drawings will make it fun to read and discuss with children of this generation. In this story they learn to bake a cake--trials and finally success. Great book for young cooks.

Independent Swedish triplets get a little careless as they attempt to make a birthday cake for their mom. Such sweet stories in this series that have been unavailable for many years. Beautiful illustrations and relatable story lines make these books the perfect choice for kids of all ages.
Be sure to check out the "Snip, Snap, and Snurr" series about the Swedish boy triplets.

A classic children's book that has truly stood the test of time. I loved this book 50 years ago as I shared the adventure of three little girls baking a birthday cake for their Mom. The prose is clear and simple and poetic with the rhyming names. The detailed, colorful illustrations capture the interest of readers and non-readers alike. I am delighted that it has been reprinted (and the whole series) so that I can read it to my granddaughters.

If all children showed the kind of thoughtful, persevering love for their mother that this book portrays, it would be like Mother's Day every day. It's not that the sisters are perfect. In fact, they make a big mistake. It's how they take ownership, control their emotions (sadness is ok, anger/defeatism is not), and put in the extra effort to complete the task with excellence. This is exactly how I want my children to live. Go ahead and buy the whole set, and also the corresponding boys' set. Every child I've read these wholesome, engaging books to has loved them. I can't think of better picture books for children ages 3-7 years old than the Flicka Ricka Dicka and Snipp Snapp Snurr series.

This story, from a long-ago time, is interesting because three little girls are allowed to bake a cake in a wood oven without supervision. In fact, their "aunt" leaves the house while they are actually baking the cake. The "lesson" learned is that "one thing at a time done well is a good plan," and even my three-year old granddaughter has learned that cute phrase from this story. I still love the pink cake!
