State Standards Publishing
The year was 2006, and company founder Jill Ward was selling books to schools and libraries in Georgia as a representative for a large national publisher’s distributor. At that time, Georgia’s new standards were looming on the horizon, where teachers would now be introducing state studies to 2nd graders. And they had a long list of required topics. When customers started asking for these books, we had to tell them . . . I’m sorry, those books don’t exist! Someone suggested it was high time they did. And with that, State Standards Publishing was born. Over the years, we have become a noted publisher of quality educational books that meet state education requirements for state studies – at grade level. Our “My State” titles target the needs of Georgia, Indiana, Texas, and Virginia. And our “My Country” titles have something for everyone – no matter where you live. All are leveled informational texts that maximize teacher time for simultaneous content and reading instruction. We wish you all success in meeting your student or child’s learning needs!
