BAE Professor, Dr. Marybeth Lima
has recently authored the book, "Building Playgrounds, Engaging Communities: Creating Safe and Happy Places for Children," published by LSU press.

Fifteen years and over seven hundred students later, Building Playgrounds, Engaging Communities tells the story of the Playground Project's ongoing partnership with area public schools to build safe, fun, accessible, kid-designed playgrounds.
