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.

Read and Understand Science, Grades 3-4 Dec 16, 2008
I really like the way this book is set up - it's got a lot of interesting information presented in a variety of ways. It's a good introduction to many aspects of science in a clear, concise manner.
Perfect! Feb 26, 2008
We started with grades 2-3 and I love these books! They have helped us move forward in Science like few other books I've used in the past 10 years. They are informative and fun. Read and Understand Science is filled with good activities, and the chapters are long enough to cover the concepts without becoming tedious. My favorite part is that it teaches key concepts without incorporating experiments too difficult to pull off in my kitchen!
We are using this Science book for a third grader in homeschool. Nov 10, 2006
We have found this book to be interesting to the student. After reading the experiments/stories, the student answers questions about what he has read. This requires comprehension and understanding. The questions are geared to require some thinking and expression by him. When called on to do experiments, he is eager to determine if the experiment will work. Often, he insists that someone else watch how it works as he does it over. I believe he is enjoying this Science curriculum and will be finished with it in record time.
great reading/vocabulary resource for teaching science Sep 4, 2005
This series builds literacy in science through readings about the human body, life, earth, and physical sciences. Key vocabulary words are presented in boldface. Each reading is followed by exercises and activities that strengthen the vocabulary and concepts presented in the reading.
