This is a post brought about by reading Life on the Cut Off’sblog today, asking followers to name their favourite Dr Seuss books. In a conversation which followed I mentioned visiting the UW Sheboygan campus book park. Actually it is known as a "bookworm garden," and I believe is one of a few dotted across the US. I visited it in Autumn 2010, just as it was opening. I am sure it has developed since then. It is a magical place for children and adults alike. Anyone able to visit....should do, it is a wonderful place.
The following photos were mostly taken on my trip in 2010, when I was taken there by my friend, DK, whose “celebration of life” party I attended this last January in Sheboygan, following her death just before Christmas.
This is one of my favourite bits..... the wonderful story of ducks in Boston , "Make way for Ducklings"
and finally, DK checking out Pooh and company.
DK was a wonderful high school English teacher, who loved literature, and provided her many nieces and nephews and friends and their children with fabulous children's books. Many of my daughter's favourite childrens stories have come through DK. DK loved this place and would love the idea that our 2010 visit has provided inspiration for a blog post.
