Blow Me Over

Yisrael Rutman

Winter coming in means getting winter equipment out: jackets, boots, gloves, earmuffs, snow shovels, snow tires, rock salt. And since it’s also the season for colds, tissues and handkerchiefs, too. But before you put your nose into one of those, put your nose into this week’s Jr. to find out all about tissues and handkerchiefs!

 

Madame Chamberlaine and The Tissue Paper Mummy

Tzipie Wolner

Madame Chamberlaine was visiting again, but instead of enjoying her, I jumped every time someone spoke too loud. I shivered every time I heard whispers and freaked out every time I heard a window slam. You see, in the last three weeks, there were seven robberies on our street! Creepy, isn’t it? So I’m sure you don’t blame me for feeling nervous.
