Joan “Jo” Berggren Hecht and her daughter Muriel Hecht joined forces to write Best Things About Dolls. Jo wrote the text as a simple-to-read poem and Muriel supplied the detailed pen and ink illustrations. The book was inspired by the Medora Doll House, a doll museum in Medora, SD.

Jo enjoyed family, camping, trail riding, bird watching, quilting, and writing. She was a certified tutor of English as a Second Language and with her husband Harry was a frequent foster parent.

She enjoyed visiting schools as an author and storyteller. She passed away of arthritis related symptoms.
