A While Ago In Idaho

Comments

Find: Summer road trips are going to start happening this month and there's a great new kit that makes travelling around the Gem State even more fun. Local children's book series A While Ago In Idaho has created A Very Historic Idaho Road Trip Summer Challenge Kit.
I'm so excited about this package we got the other day from A While Ago In Idaho! A While Ago In Idaho is a book series that encourages kids to explore Idaho and learn about some of it's strange history with a cute little tour guide, Belmont Beaver. 🦫📚

I legitimately did know know most of the facts in this book and I can't wait to see where else Belmont takes us! 🦫🛣️ We got both tour books and the adventure pack which includes stickers, adventure journals, a pencil, and an awesome map of Idaho with stickers to plan out where we'd like to explore next!

A little mountain bluebird told me that Belmont will be hosting a "Very Historic Idaho Summer Road Trip" this summer and YOU could win big by participating! Keep an eye out on our page or on the A While Ago In Idaho page for more information soon!

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.
