The film company behind the adaption of The Chronicles of Narnia is being honored by the AAP. For its educational efforts, and for raising the awareness of various children’s titles by turning them into movies, Walden Media is receiving the 2009 AAP Honors award.
The company was founded in 1999 and has made films based on a number of iconic children’s titles – including Holes, Because of Winn-Dixie and Bridge to Terabithia – while establishing a significant educational outreach program in the process. Walden’s president, Michael Flaherty, will be presented with the honor at the AAP’s Annual Meeting in New York on March 11.
Congratulations, Walden Media!
