2011 Holiday Gift Guide Day 4 - Flicka Ricka Dicka And Their New Skates Hardback Book

Just in time to celebrate Christmas,  Flicka,  Ricka,  Dicka Hardback book is available for purchase.  If you are a child or parent of the 40's or 50's then more than likely remember this book of timeless tales of the innocence of childhood.  I had never heard about Flicka Ricka Dicka until I was presented with an opportunity to review this classic book,  probably because I am a child of the eighties.  I figured my mom would be familiar with this book because she grew up in the fifities and sure enough it was one of her favorites!

About The Author:
Maj Lindman grew up in Swedenfrom 1886 until her death in 1972.  Although she wrote many and illistrated many childrens books,  she is best known for her tales of the triplet girls - Flicka,  Ricka, and Dicka and their boy counterparts,  Snipp,  Snapp, and Snurr. 

About This Book:
This tale takes place in Sweden where early one Christmas morning three girls(Flicka,  Ricka,  and Dicka) wake up excited to soon open their gifts.  After receiving their Christmas gifts( three sets of skates-one for each girl),  they decided to put them to use.  While enjoying thier Chritmas gift they meet a little boy named Bertie.  When Bertie soon finds himself in danger will the girls be able to save him?  You will have to read it for yourself to find out!

Our Thoughts:
The book titled "Flicka,  Ricka,  Dicka And Their New Skates" is a beautifully illistrated book written by Maj Lindman.  I was sent the updated version of this book which includes a lovely set of paper dolls.  Paper dolls were quite popular back in the days according to my mother who said that they were the number one toy she played with when she was just a young girl.  This festive book features a bright red,  and green hard cover with glittery letters and picture.  This book is recommended for children ages 5-8.  This book would make a fabulous gift for any little girl or adult woman that grew up in the 40's or 50's.

Publisher:  Albert Whitman & Company,  Publishing Childrens Books since 1919.
