Bookworm Gardens is such a wonderful place to take children. The volunteers and donors who created this magical place have put so much time, effort and money into making this a very special and fun place to bring kids to. BG survives on donations, and there is no admissions fee. The founders truly had a unique vision when they created... More

This is such a sweet place. It brings childhood books to life. Such a fantastic idea. I had to sit in Papa Bear's chair in the Goldilocks garden. I highly recommend a visit here, no matter what your age.

We took our grandchildren here and they loved exploring the various paths to each section of the garden and then trying out the different features at each. There is also a cute cottage with books, restrooms, and chairs.

We have gone to Bookworm Gardens five or six times since it opened several years ago. The grandchildren love to go there. The displays that go with specific books is outstanding. Lots of hands on things for kids and adults who are still kids at heart. Throughout the park are brick stations that contain books that you can read with... More

Children's books reminds us all of better times when we were young. This is an outstanding place to spend a few hours with your children or grandchildren. Lacking either on this visit didn't matter a bit. We enjoyed walking the paths, seeing the displays depicting books we all remember (and some we never knew) and viewing the unique plants and... More

My granddaughters came here last year and when my husband and I came to Sheboygan I wanted to go. This attraction was one of the most wonderful places I have ever been to. We were there for hours. I wish I would have spent more time reading the books and seeing what they did to relive the story. I gushed... More
