Reviewed by Kylie Jenkins, age 9
This book is about one early morning in Sweden, on Christmas and Flicka , Ricka , and Dicka open up their presents and they get just what they wanted …ice skates for each of them. Then their uncle and aunt invited them over and he said to bring Mike their dog. Then they saw their Uncle and Mike by the pond. He told them the rules and they skated off. They played follow the leader. They saw a little boy with a sled and they played together and then the boy noticed Mike and the little boy followed him. Then Mike was soon running to the thin ice and Mike and Bertie fell through the ice. Mike climbed out Dicka pulled Bertie out. Then they took him to his mom and they took care of him. Then they went home. The next day Bertie was there with small boxes for the girls and they invited him in. When they opened their presents there were dolls and they said thank you and ate dinner.
I think this book was very sweet. This book would be good for 3 year old girls through age 7.
