This is a special place created and developed with the vision of a natural landscape gardener with an eye to books of appeal to children. It is a restful--and exciting- place which continues to grow--at the edge of a university campus--which has charm and appeal for all ages of visitors.

We had an amazing time. With something for the whole family. Gardens for the gardening Papa, playhouses for the Nana, books to read for the book lovers.

At the advice of my son and his family, my wife and I stopped by to visit this family attraction. We're glad we did! Located near the UW and Accuity campuses on the southwest side, this wonderfully creative showplace for children's stories is a landscape architect's dream project! Much to enjoy here no matter you age.

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.
