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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Daily Summer Activities, Moving from First to Second Grade?
Summer fun Jul 1, 2008
This is the second year that I've purchased this series for my daughter to keep her on track during the summer break from school. Although I've used several different series for her, this one is the most comprehensive. I like the fact that the workbook is organized on a weekly basis, so that she knows exactly which lesson she needs to be doing on which day. I also like the interactive lessons, such as cooking and crafts that are included. It allows your child to participate in fun activities that are also educational--they are asked to comment on the activity after they finish. My daughter really likes this series and there isn't any complaining about having to do "school" work during the summer--a definite recommendation coming from a 7 year old! The only disappointment I have is that the 1st to 2nd grade book seems to be a little on the easier side, especially in the area of math. Other than that, I'm very happy with this series and it definitely helps parents supplement any other educational activities that they may have planned during the summer.
Summer Learning Fun Jun 28, 2007
Organized by the week with daily activities this is the ideal solution to the summer doldrums. I leave it out and the children spontaneouely want to "play". The material is appropriate, the segments are manageable for our delayed child; our typically developing folks work until they are tired of it. The book includes math, spelling, writing, reading and reading comprehension. It won't last the summer I fear; what a nice problem to have.
Good but..... Apr 17, 2006
now don't get me wrong I like this book because it keeps my daughter busy over summertime and her brain active however some of the stuff is almost Kindergarten Level. Don't expect your kids to learn anything new from this book! The book I believe is more in the sense that your child won't forget what it has learned in the previous year. I still think its a great book very colorful and I also like how it is put together on a week by week basis with Diary of what your child did everyday and book record so you can see how much your child has been reading each day/ week.
reinforces some subject areas better than others Jul 28, 2005
I purchased this book and the K to 1st grade book for my son who will be entering the 1st grade. I thought the math portion of the K to 1st book was too easy which is the main reason why I also bought this one. For a true 1st to 2nd grader, this book should provide good reinforcement in the all areas other than math.
excellent for summer review Jul 28, 2005
These books are excellent for summer reviews. I use them every summer. I even bought one for my nephew who stayed at my house for extended periods this summer. Most kids can complete the two pages in about 15 minutes.
