Cutest Place

This is the cutest place ever! I have taken my kids just randomly one day for something to do. My mom makes sure she takes them once a year. My kids are 5 and 7 and they love it!

We live in the same town as Bookworm Gardens and we feel SO fortunate that it's only a 10-minute car ride from home. We visit it 5-10 times every summer and enjoy their Halloween festival in the fall. My son also took a Bookwork Gardens Camp as a four year old and he still raves about it. It's a place... More

I must see for kids and adults. The adults in our group had heart stopping grins on their faces as they relived their book. Lots of talking among young and old.

I took my 2 grandchildren to visit Bookworm Gardens last fall. I had taken my class there 2 years ago when I taught. The children in both groups absolutely loved the time there. The interactive story books seemed to be brought to life. The children felt they were part of the stories they had read in viewing each of the... More

The gardens are beautiful and whimsical. They are beautifully planted to the themes of children's storybooks. There are books available for children to read and hands on activities for children of all ages.
