Snipp, Snapp and Snurr lear about Earning Money Aug 30, 2003
Snipp, Snapp and Snurr, the three Swedish boys, want to get their mother a gift for her birthday. They do not know what to get her (all of their suggestions are really for kid's things). Then they find out that their mother would love a pair of red shoes lined in gold.
The boys decide their mother must have the shoes. They cannot get enough money out of their piggy bank so they must go out and earn more.
Each boy finds a job (painter, chimney sweep, miller) and together earn just enough to buy the shoes (as well as each getting dirty in a different way). Together they giver her the gift she never expected.
Each pair of pages has the story on the left and a painted illustration by the author on the right. A rather amusing and fun tale. Read all of the Snipp, Snapp and Snurr books.
Snipp, Snapp, Snurr and the Red Shoes Jul 12, 2003
55 years ago, when I was in first grade, I could hardly wait for the bookmobile to come every-other week, so that I could check out this book or others in the series. Snipp, Snapp, Snurr and Flicka, Ricka and Dicka had many wonderful adventures and the illustrations are beautiful. I was always happy after reading one of these books and thought of them often over the years when my children were growing up.
How thrilled I was to see them back in print! The stories are simple, yet each one sends a message of value to a child.
Grandparents, your little ones should have the joy of visiting with Snipp, Snapp, Snurr and Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka.
A childhood favorite I'm passing along. Jun 2, 1999
My grandma first read this book to me when I was four (many, many years ago). She died not long after, but the name of this favorite book always stayed with me and I searched high and low for it. Eventually, it came back into print -- just in time for me to share it with my niece and nephew. They love it -- and its message of the satisfaction derived from selfless acts -- as much as I did and do. I can almost hear my grandma's voice as I read...
