This illustrated children’s picture book tells the very best things
about some very special dolls on display in a museum in Medora, North Dakota.
A lively verse by Joan Hecht runs through the book, highlighting the detailed
pen-and-ink drawings of antique dolls by Colorado artist Muriel Hecht.
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.
