Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The girls received new dotted dresses from their mother, and they went off to play. Instead, they helped an old woman with her animals. It was a happy day, but by the end, the dotted dresses were in a very sorry state.

Flicka, Ricka and Dicka, the three Swedish girls, are given new red dresses with white dots that their mother made for them. They then go out to play.
While playing they meet and old woman carrying firewood. As their mother has taught them to always help others, they offer to help. The woman accepts but is concerned about getting the dresses dirty. But the girls wish to follow their mother's teaching.
Soon they are at the old woman's cottage and helping with all sorts of chores late into the day. As they return home their dresses are dirty and even torn. Their mother is happy that her girls were so helpful.
The next day the girls wash and mend their dresses and their mother gives them new advice. Next time they help the old woman, they should wear overalls.
Another wonderful and charming story. One never knows what Flicka, Ricka and Dicka will get up to, but it is sure to make an enjoyable tale. Each pair of pages has the story on one side and a beautifully painted illustration by the author on the other. If you like Flicka, Ricka and Dicka, check out Snipp, Snapp and Snurr.

We bought all the F-R-D books that are available in paperback for my daughter's third birthday. She loved them all. She will be turning 6 soon and she still enjoys them alot. The illustrations are charming and story topics are sweet. The illustrations especially can encourage talking about life in the past such as using baskets for things instead of the paper/plastic rut we are in. One thing to keep in mind is these books were written some 40+ years ago and times were different. We would not encourage our children to wander off in the woods to help a stranger without adult supervision. This plot can lead to some good conversation about what is/is not safe now. Keeping that in mind the books are awesome!

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 adventure they have new dresses, but during the day's work helping another, they find they should have worn work clothes.

A neighbor introduced me to old Flicka Ricka Dicka books she had saved (favorites from her childhood) and I knew my daughter would instantly take to them. The illustrations are wonderful and the stories keep the imagination alive as you follow three, identical triplet sisters on their adventures.

This was one of my favorite books when I was a little girl. I came across my old hardback copy and read it to my girls. I still loved the story and so did they so we ordered some more books about Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka, and even a few about Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr. Great colors, adorable illustrations, takes you back in time.
