This is a great place to take my toddlers. They get to play outside and learn at the same time! I also love how they have some stories that are more familiar along with others that are not. My kids love walking through there and especially "driving" the bus!

This place is great. The colors are beautiful. Donations are requested. The perfect place to take pictures of your children. I just saw a photo gallery of a friends baby from here that were awesome. Looks just like a story coming to life. Neat. Would recommend anyone coming to the area to check it out. Alot of other neat attractions... More

This garden was enchanting for anyone who loves botanical gardens or books. Young children will especially enjoy this location. Free admission (donations requested). Looking forward to visiting again.

In an hour of playing we've barely covered one fourth of this beautiful Children's Garden. Enjoyed the Magic School Bus, Winnie the Pooh, the Loch Ness monster dragon and the cottage and more. On the grounds of university of Wisconsin and near Kohler Spa this is definitely worth a stop through.

This was a great find! My wife is a children's librarian, and she was in 7th Heaven. The gardens are beautiful, and are a great way to combine education and entertainment. And it's free! -but good enough that you want to leave them a donation.

Children's books are the theme of different areas of this beautiful outdoor garden ready for your children to run and explore. Each area has different hands on activities that are help yourself and mostly in good repair.

My husband and I visited Bookworm Gardens with our almost two year old daughter this past weekend. The gardens are just beautiful. There is so much for little ones to explore. We packed a little picnic lunch and ate in the treehouse. My daughter loved all the different things she could touch and play with. We will definitely be visiting... More

Interesting. Beautiful gardens. Take a kid and plan some time to sit and read in one of the most beautiful gardens anywhere.
