In the spring of 2016, life presented Deb and Dave with an unexpected opportunity that would shape their journey in ways they couldn’t have anticipated. Owning an independent, locally owned, and operated toy store wasn’t part of the plan, but we are immensely grateful that it became a reality. With heartfelt enthusiasm, we embraced this chance to serve our community and opened Nature’s Nook Children’s Toys and Books in the spring of 2016 in the magical city of Minot, ND. Since then, our small business has been dedicated to bringing joy and inspiration to all ages through a thoughtfully curated selection of toys, games, hobbies, and books. Deb, the heart and soul behind Nature’s Nook Children’s Toys and Books, brings a wealth of personal experiences and a passion for creativity to our store. Magdalena Burger, a professional artist, raised her, so her journey in the world of art started early. Growing up with an art studio at her disposal, Deb was encouraged to explore various materials and techniques, from pen and ink to watercolors, oils, and acrylic paints. Her mother’s guidance in sketching, painting, handcrafts, and sewing instilled in her a deep love for creation. Deb’s childhood was enriched by the freedom to play outdoors, climb trees, finger paint, swim, and embrace the wonders of her environment. This environment nurtured her innate creativity and fueled her passion for artistic expression. Today, she generously shares her vast knowledge and fantastic creative techniques with her students at Nature’s Nook Children’s Toys and Books. In addition to her art-influenced background, Deb also spent a decade as a teacher in California while raising her own children. This valuable experience allowed her to bring her expertise and understanding of child development into her classes at the store. With an undergraduate degree in psychology and a graduate degree from seminary, where she obtained a Master’s in Divinity, Deb is a fully ordained minister with the Presbyterian Church USA. Her deep-rooted passion for family and children shines through in every aspect of her work. Deb creates an inviting and engaging space for children and adults alike.
