6 Popular Jr. Pairs Fun things in Jr. tend to come in pairs! Here are some interesting details about these terrific twosomes: Dov and Dina These adorable siblings are quite a fixture in the magazine, especially for Jr.’s youngest readers! “Although Dov and Dina are still quite small, they’ve been learning important lessons from Mommy, Tatty, Bubby — and life itself,” says author R. Atkins. Fishel and Faivish As for Fishel and Faivish, also by R. Atkins, the troublesome pair are still getting into scrapes, but they do earnestly mean to improve... Hey, it could still happen! When Mrs. Atkins does readings of the Jolly Solly stories, the characters that kids seem to enjoy the most — apart from Jolly Solly, of course — are Mr. Krankowitz and Fishel and Faivish. Jr. fans, take note: a book of Jolly Solly stories is in the works!
