Smore Magazine Information
Why is this called Smore?
We wanted to create a fun and unintimidating magazine. A magazine that would make science learning an enjoyable and unforgettable experience. And we couldn't think of a better word than Smore to associate with that experience. Plus Smore also can be interpreted as Science-more. Win-Win.
Can't boys read it too? Why do we feature women scientists on covers?
Absolutely!! Smore is far from being a girly magazine. We see no reason why boys cannot read it too. We believe that a future of gender equality and diversity in STEM fields can only be achieved if both boys and girls are shown powerful female role models who have challenged gender stereotypes and achieved success.
What’s the recommended age for readers?
Smore is recommended for ages 7+. But really anyone who is curious about the way our world works should read Smore. Through our engaging articles, we hope to push the boundaries of how you think about science.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we ship internationally. Additional charges apply for shipping copies outside of the USA. Shipping is an additional $20.

What if we get a book we already have?
At Smore we believe that when you give someone a book, you give them the possibility of a whole new world. If you happen to get a book your child already has, we encourage you to share the book with your child's classroom, gift it to a friend or donate to a local charity and give a child the possibility of new worlds.
Why do some of the books have a dot or a mark at the bottom edge?
Publishers mark excess inventory with a small dot, a line or a stamp to make sure it does not get returned. This also makes it possible for us to purchase brand new books at great prices and pass those savings to you.
