Opportunity to Bond Over Favorite Childhood Stories

Featuring over 50 book-based displays, there is bound to be one or two (or ten) displays that will bring out the kid in you! The displays are divided into six themes throughout the garden. Each area is marked with a stone pillar at the entrance of the individual gateways. Take a few minutes to sit down and lose yourself in a favorite childhood story while exploring the garden with your children.

Magical Experience for Young Minds

There’s no doubt that reading helps to develop children’s imaginations, but Bookworm Gardens takes it to another level. Popular tales are brought to life in a unique way you can only find in this garden!

Interactive Displays

Sure, it’s an amazing thing to gaze upon the characters and dwellings of childhood fables, but it’s another to literally put yourself in the middle of it. A number of the displays give children (and even adults) a chance to interact with the exhibits, or step into the habitat of fictional characters.

Garden & Landscape Inspiration

From the wide variety of plants to the imaginative, custom garden decor, to the creative landscaping, there is much inspiration to draw from the gardens. There are incredible stone raised beds in front of the Charlotte’s Web barn that are filled with veggies. The grass “couch” for the He Came to the Couch exhibit would be a great escape spot to add to the right yard. Creating an enchanting fairy world similar to the Fairy Houses display could turn into a fun project for the whole family.

Excite Your Child About Reading

After seeing story after story pop off the pages of her favorite books, what child wouldn’t want to run home and lose herself in a great story? Make sure to prepare yourself before your visit, and swing by the library to pick up some of the books featured at Bookworm Gardens (find a listing of titles at bookwormgardens.org).

Watch out! Food is falling from the sky as you enter the “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” exhibit! Don’t fret, there is a stale bread boat with a cheese sail to get you to safety :)

Hours of FREE Entertainment

The adults ooh and ahh over the beauty of the gardens, the kids jump from display to display in delight, and everyone connects while taking pleasure in the extraordinary activities of the garden… all for FREE! There is no charge to visit the garden, but I highly recommend dropping a donation in the donation box near the entrance of the garden. The grounds are well-kept, even more so than some of the gardens I have purchased tickets to enter!
