Walden Media was started with a simple goal: bring the kind of books we all love and admire to the screen. And that’s what the company has done with films based on classic books like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe or recent award-winning novels such as Holes, Bridge to Terabithia and Because of Winn-Dixie. Walden also publishes books, like the Paddywhack Lane series and The White Giraffe. Some of Walden’s productions and publications are inspired by real-life stories like the incredible career of Jim Thorpe, or the wonders of deep-sea exploration.
Walden.com offers lots of free educational games based on its books and movies at http://www.walden.com/walden/play. Parents and teachers will find the free educational materials at http://www.walden.com/walden/teach to be useful when discussing these movies and books with children. Free video clips can be found at http://www.walden.com/walden/experience. It’s all kid- and family-friendly.
