More About Evan-Moor Educational Publishers

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.

Our History

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.

Our Future

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 History Pockets: Explorers of North America, Grades 4-6+?

Liked it!  Jan 20, 2008
I teach 5th grade and used the activities in this book to supplement the text and online scavenger hunts that we did as a group. What I like about the activities in this book is that they work for a wide range of skill levels. The gifted students in the class were having as much fun with the activities as the students who are severely impaired. All of the students were placed into groups and they were all able to do the activities with little help outside their groups. There are so many different activities in the book it was impossible to use them all, so it's important to select the things that look appropriate for your group of learners. Parents liked what they saw when we were finished, and the students had a very nice finished product.
Just OK  Jun 21, 2006
I teach 5th grade and I used this last fall. You definitely would be lacking if this was the only thing you did for an explorers unit. I did not use it "pocket" style for that reason, but did use some of the information and activities to supplement my unit. The information about the explorers is good, but some of the activities are a little silly and don't really support their learning well.
Sadly Disappointed  Mar 28, 2005
I thought these History Pockets would compliment our homeschool well. I was wrong. They are good for bursts of information, but we found them to be busy work, dull and redundant to our learning.

I would not recommended them to fellow homeschoolers.
