We went here years ago while staying at Blue Harbor for a weekend getaway. My young kids liked exploring and checking out the areas/homes that went with well known children's books. They listened to a story in the tree house area. I loved it as well! I wished I lived closer so I could visit often and bring a book... More

The place is just amazing. The grounds are filled with gardens all associated with story book themes. There are many sculptures associated with different children stories. I would guess adults enjoy the gardens as much as the kids.

Bookworm Gardens is a hidden gem in Sheboygan. You have to experience it to believe it. The grounds are beautifully landscaped to the themes of numerous children's books. There is something to see around every corner. Kids love it. Bring a book and relax in the outdoors.

Whimsical! I love the Bookworm Gardens. They are imaginatively planned and lovingly cared for. I can't wait to load up my nephew and nieces and bring them for an adventure here.

My grandchildren, aged 4 and 2, plus my 87-year-old mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bookworm Gardens last May. We found it easy to maneuver and very relaxing....even with toddlers! It held ALL of our interests and was a photographer's haven. We must have spent 2 or 3 hours there and we could have spent more time there... More

Bookworm Gardens is a go to place when the weather is nice and I want to get the kids out of the house. I love that the gardens are kid friendly, and themed to children's books. My two girls can explore the gardens to burn off energy and when they are good and tired we can sit and read a... More
