Book Review: Flicka, Ricka, Dicka, and Their New Skates


Flicka, Ricka, And Dicka and Their New Skates

Author: Maj Lindman

Albert Whitman and Company

ISBN: 978-0-8075-2496-1

Published in 1950. 1979, 2011

While visiting relatives in Sweden the triplets get new ice skates for Christmas. This is a charming story first published in 1950 that depicts sweetness and innocence while also teaching a life lesson. The triplets learn about team work when they must work together to save Bertie.

The illustrations bring back memories for those of us who grew up in the 1950's and it brings good old fashioned charm to the  children of today. A fun, simple story with warm illustrations and a set of old fashioned paper dolls included with the book.

This makes a great gift for collectors, young readers, and for that special reader who simply loves a good honest and sweet story.
