How to Design and Build Children's Play Equipment

Jay Beckwith, Author, Mark Pechenik, Illustrator, Jim Dennis, Photographer Ortho Books $9.95 (96p) ISBN 978-0-89721-075-1
Prefaced by a useful analysis of children's activity needs and their different abilities in successive age groups, this book offers plans and detailed instructions for building outdoor play and exercise equipment. Traditional itemsslides, swings and ladderare included, but most projects shown are not commonly found in playgrounds. They are innovative and geometric, calculated to intrigue adults as well as children: triangle towers are scaled by scrambling up lead pipes, slides wriggle through openings in a split-level, A-frame clubhouse, and sack swings, slide-down poles, monkey bars and treehouses are presented with modern designs. Information on materials, tools, construction and safety factors is supplemented by line drawings and color photos. (November)
