Flicka Ricka and Dicka Learn About Those Less Fortunate Sep 16, 2003
Possibly the best children's story I have ever seen about charity.
Flicka, Ricka and Dicka's mother is ready for canning, but does not know what fruit to use. The girls decide they should pick strawberries. Their mother tells them it is a good idea and will pay them for each basket they fill.
The girls go out the next morning but the quest for strawberries takes them far from home. Tired and thirsty they try to return home and discover they are lost. They find a cottage and ask for help. There they meet a very friendly and helpful family (mother, daughter and baby boy). The girls notice that while everything is clean, all the clothes are patched. The girl helps them get home after they have had a drink of water (sometimes there is not enough milk for the baby).
When the girls are paid for their work, they decide that they really have all they need and decide to spend their coins on the helpful family. Canned strawberries, a dress for the girl and a teddy bear for the boy are bought and taken to the family.
Each pair of pages has the story on one side and a painted illustration by the author on the other. Check out all of the Flicka, Ricka, Dicka books. Fans of this one may want to check out Snipp, Snapp, Snurr and the Yellow Sled.
A sweet picture book May 3, 1998
I have fond memories of reading this book on the floor of the public library. "The Strawberries" was my favorite, but all the Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka books are cute picture books for young children.
