What a hidden gem this place is, from the colorful paths leading the way around the place, to having the children learn by the little vignettes of places that they can interact with their favorite childhood stories. The 3 bears along with the 3 pigs are there, along with van gogh frames and monet's waterlilies. Don't forget to drive the covered wagon and stop at the Little House on the prairie. Stopping at the magical treehouse, be sure to stop at mr. Sander's treehouse and look for Pooh and his friends. Did I mention to watch out for Mr. Mcgregor , he is always looking for Peter to nibble on his lettuce. This park is attached and maintained by the University of Wisconsin Sheboygan. The gift shop is stocked with the books of the featured areas along with the characters from the books. It's a popular place for day camps, schools, so visiting on a busy day means you will have to wait to get into some of the areas. It is so spread out it is easy to move on and double back to make sure you can see all of them. Plan on spending at least an hour or more. Pack a lunch there are picnic tables available. It is somewhat stroller friendly, but it is an interactive park and the little ones should be able to get down and explore. If the siblings are smaller, a baby carrier would be suggested. SHHH don't forget they are learning while having fun! ( be sure to check out the stone pillars along the paths, they hold books that you can sit and read to go along with the vignette you are visiting.

This is a cute place. Fun art, nice garden, books hidden in pillars and places to take a break. This is a place for people with kids. Some fun activities like washing a stone dog or seeing big fish in the pond. Lots of creativity and it's free. Only downside is a single two stall bathroom.

It was a cute place but probably meant more for families than older couples, unless you have a good book and want a cute place to read. It was kept up and clean. Kids seemed like they had a blast.

We had a wonderful experience at Bookwork Gardens! Beautiful gardens, meticulously maintained and cared for. My kids loved seeing parts of their favorite stories brought to life. Lots of things to see, touch and smell. I can't believe this place is supported by donations. No entrance fee required, but a donation is appreciated. Close parking and picnic tables in the shade make this an ideal place for families with young children.

This is a wonderful place to take the children for a couple of hours. Beautiful storybook scenery and flowers and shrubs were gorgeous. We went on a very warm day, but there are large, shady areas to take a rest, and activities for the children. We had a great time. Free admission but a donation is appreciated.
