Went to Bookworm on Monday morning in September. School buses were there already but the place is large and there was plenty of room. Loved the hands on exhibits and was totally amazed at the large varieties and beautiful and fascinating sculptures. More to see and watch work than you would imagine. Loved the KOI fish in the pond and could watch for quite some time. Would recommend a few hour trip for children of any age up to Grand parents. Plenty to see and tough and loved the cushioned walkways.

First of all, this is so much better then you will expect. Plan to stay a while and dream your hours away playing in your favorite storybooks come to life. I could not rave about this place enough. Hidden gems are everywhere and kids will have so much fun exploring, discovering and immersing themselves in literature. I can only imagine the wonder of younger kids, we had older ones and they were playing and laughing the afternoon away.

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.
