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 in a great 10×8″ size. Definitely quality and I believe they will last a very long time.
I had no idea what to expect, but after reading Flicka, Ricka, Dicka and the Strawberries I am an instant fan and wouldn’t hesitate to add the entire series to my shelves and recommend it to others. It is vintage and full of moral character. The triplets are swedish which given my husband’s heritage will make these books even more precious to my girls over the years with repeat readings I’m sure.
This story is sweet and I even found myself teary eyed. In setting and character it reminds me of Heidi. The way these girls take fun and promise and turn it into a blessing to others is exactly the type of example I’d like to present to my girls in story time.
