It's been nearly three decades since Randall Reinstedt first published "More than Memories: History and Happenings of the Monterey Peninsula." The teacher-turned-author has received so many requests for his book, he and his wife Debbie cobbled together some resources to put together another print.
The result, the 2012 reprint of "More than Memories," a comprehensive history of the Monterey Peninsula that includes activities, questions, and other ideas for teachers to use in their classrooms.
And here's the best part. The Reinstedt's are giving away 1,000 copies, thanks to a grant that's making the giveaway possible.
You have until Nov. 30 to make the request. Download an application from here and then submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The books will not be mailed, so it's probably better to be local. There will be local distribution points in the Monterey Peninsula that will be announced in December.
From my quick read, I can see the book is a great resource, so I encourage all fourth grade teachers in Monterey County to ask for a free copy.
