Bookworm Gardens brings books to life one garden at a time. To kick start the 2017 season Bookworm will have a garden designed by students for the first time in its history! Join us for a celebration of our new Readers Roundup Garden and the book Drum Dream Girl.
During the 16/17 school year, Wisconsin classrooms were invited to create a design for a new garden through the Readers Roundup: Garden Creation Contest, which is funded by the John M. Kohler Foundation. Students from ten classrooms submitted proposals, in which they described a book they would like to see at Bookworm and created a design for how it could be transformed into a garden. First grade students from The Prairie School in Racine chose Drum Dream Girl by Margarita Engle, which was chosen as the 2017 contest winner.
