More About Evan-Moor Educational Publishers
Since 1979, Evan-Moor Educational Publishers has provided educators with practical, creative, and engaging PreK–8 materials to support and enrich the core curriculum.
We strive to produce educational materials that are aligned with current standards and best educational practices—and with student interests and motivations. We pride ourselves on our ability to create products that not only build and reinforce basic and complex skills, but that develop a curiosity about the subjects in which those skills are taught.
When teaching colleagues and friends Joy Evans and Jo Ellen Moore created their first handwritten book to motivate struggling students in their classroom, they had no idea that they were embarking on a very successful career in educational publishing.
In the 1970s, Joy and Jo Ellen were team teaching in a Title I school in California and developing their own supplemental resources to inspire students in their classroom to learn basic skills. After multiple rejection letters from publishers, Joy and Jo Ellen decided to independently publish their first six titles. Partnering with Joy’s brother, Bill Evans, the trio founded Evan-Moor Educational Publishers in 1979.
Joy and Jo Ellen taught the first few years while Bill practiced law. Bill and Joy’s parents, Olive and Earl, volunteered their garage as a warehouse and shipping facility. Olive and Earl also served as the first sales team, visiting local stores and book clubs—and eventually the grassroots efforts took off.
Today, Evan-Moor Educational Publishers operates with the same family spirit and enthusiasm that the company was founded on nearly 35 years ago. While Evan-Moor sadly said goodbye to Joy Evans in 2012, the passion and energy that Joy, Jo Ellen, and Bill infused into Evan-Moor has propelled the company to long-term success.
Joy and Jo Ellen’s inaugural, hand-crafted book has led to more than 500 titles, as well as digital resources, e-books, center kits, RTI resources, and an interactive learning platform for 1:1 learning models. And today, as in the early days, Evan-Moor continues to develop resources and technologies with a clear, unwavering focus on the goal of helping children learn.

Great Teaching Tool Sep 27, 2008
I homeschool my 7 year old son,and this is a great book for him learning science. I have been using it for the last month and my son has learned alot. I would recommend this to anyone that wants there child to learn about science. It teaches everything they need to know for 2nd and 3rd grade.
The do-it-all book! Apr 20, 2008
It is hard to find a science book like this for lower elementary. I did not really want a "textbook" for my 2nd grade homeschooled daughter, but I wanted something more than another science experiment book where I had to do all the explaining. This is very straight forward, requires her to read the information for herself, and includes some kind of experiment with a written exercise. The 27 chapters could easily take you through a school year and could be grouped into units with extra reading from the library.
Science to Grow By! Sep 11, 2007
I love the way this book combines SIMPLE experiments with great information! One of the best science books I've found for the younger elementary grades. Covers many areas with simple to understand language and end-of-section content reviews. Also, the way the book is arranged, it's easy to skip around to different sections depending on what you may be doing in other areas of homeschool at the time. Great supplement to any science curriculum!
