Kids Can Explore Historic Idaho in This Fun New Book!

This book will take kids on a tour across Idaho, exploring some of the states's more interesting—and sometimes strange—history. Artist Kelly Knopp and historian Amber Beierle have combined art and history in a fun new children's book, "A While Ago in Idaho." Self-published and produced entirely in Idaho, the book is filled with colorful artwork illustrating some strange and lesser-known history, narrated by a lovable tour guide named "Belmont Beaver."

After working on a few other projects together Kelly Knopp (illustrator) and Amber Beierle (historian) decided to partner up on "A While Ago in Idaho" because they both realized that they really enjoyed pairing historical facts and stories with artwork. This book series will educate and encourage the exploration of the great state of Idaho and its history.

Kids and families are invited to submit their own strange or lesser-known history from the Idaho towns and cities that they reside in, for possible inclusion in the next "A While Ago In Idaho" book.
