A step back in time with this re-published book. The original title was first published in 1946 and it was re-released in 2012. Three Swedish triplets are off to play wearing their new red, polka dotted dresses. Their mother warns them to be careful and to try to stay clean. As they were playing, they ran into an old lady who needed help with her chores. Flick, Ricka and Dicka got all the chores done, but they got quite dirty in the process. They were worried that their mother would be very mad, but she told them that being helpful was more important then being worried about their dresses. The next morning they washed and mended their dresses and they were just like new.
This is a cute story that can teach children to help older people. As in the other books in this series, the illustrations seem to be the original watercolors from the previously published books. The pictures look old fashioned, but in a good way. The old lady looked a little bit like a witch first, but readers will quickly realize that she is a nice old woman.
There is nothing objectionable in this book. It is appropriate for a school library. It would also be a great example of helping when doing character education lessons. It would be a good choice for individual reading selections for SSR or DEAR times. It would also make for a cute spring or summer themed book display in the elementary library. ( )
