Tell Us About the Time You Fell Off the Monkey Bars—and Enter a Book Giveaway!

ForeEdge and University Press of New England are basically thrilled to finally be able to say: Brenda Biondo's gorgeous photographic tribute to the bygone playgrounds of our youth, Once Upon A Playground: A Celebration of Classic American Playgrounds: 1920-1975, is available now!

The video above is just a taste of the images that will put your Americana nostalgia engines in overdrive. And it features a recent interview that Biondo did with the inquisitive hosts of "For Your Ears Only." Listen to Biondo explain what inspired her to immortalize these disappearing playground structures and find out how you can help the non-profit organization, Kaboom, build new playgrounds for neighborhoods that need them.

But wait, there's more.

We're in a good mood lately, so we're giving away THREE copies of Once Upon A Playground to three different winners. See the contest entry form below.

To better your chances of winning, share this post with your friends, and leave us a comment about a memorable playground moment of yours—what jungle gym you were the king or queen of, what merry-go-round you got pretty banged up on, maybe that first kiss underneath the coiling slide?

And thanks for liking the new ForeEdge Facebook page—like raising a playground, there are fun things in store. More ForeEdge giveaways! News and reviews about other new releases! Even more exclamation points!

This giveaway closes May 16 at 5:00 PM EST.
