  • Absolutely amazing. We live far away but it was well worth the drive. Amazing play areas! Creative! One of the best places we went all summer. Loved the Magic School Bus
  • Loved the Gardens! So much love and creativity went into the planning for all the various book settings. What a wonderful tribute to children's literature! Recommend: The classic, The Secret Garden would be nice to feature. I even overheard some one else looking for it.
  • This place was pretty neat. My 4 year old son loved it. It has beautiful scenery.
  • Great for kids under 10 and adult book worms. Great experience. Loved it!
  • Beautiful, calm place. Very enjoyable for kids and adults alike. I'd say ages 0-99 would enjoy it. Maybe the teenage set would be a little bored. Read books, enjoy the gardens, take darling pictures. There are even nice clean restrooms for those of us who drove in from out of town. Worth the drive!
